My name is Jim, I live in northern California.
My rating is normally in the 1900-2000 range.

   Sep-25-17 Ju Wenjun vs J Houska, 2017 (replies)
JimNorCal: Loss on time?
   Sep-25-17 G Oskam vs S Landau, 1926
JimNorCal: Oops! Too bad this was a closed Sicilian. I'm sure we'd enjoy having a game we could nickname "Oskam's Rauzer".
   Sep-24-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
JimNorCal: Game 2, Ding felt so pressured he could not eat his banana. :) He lists a lot of variations, quite interesting!
   Sep-24-17 A Ledger vs Ju Wenjun, 2017
JimNorCal: GM Wenjun is winning around move 30 but IM Ledger alertly finds a drawing line.
   Sep-24-17 Ju Wenjun vs V Balint, 2017
JimNorCal: <An Englishman>: Heh. Very funny!
   Sep-24-17 Isle of Man Open (2017) (replies)
JimNorCal: Who else is hoping for a Short vs Adams match-up?
   Sep-24-17 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
JimNorCal: Yes the low resolution StockFish on chess24 does not like g5. Still objectively a draw but will bring renewed energy to Aronian I would think.
   Sep-23-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
JimNorCal: Agree w/ <an Englishman>. To my eye each side has the other tied up. Both would want to maneuver to a point where they could disengage from defense and focus on offense in hopes of crashing through. Simple enough to let StockFish or expert commentators settle it.
   Sep-22-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
JimNorCal: <HeME>: We humans could comprise a formidable force.
   Sep-19-17 G A Thomas vs Carls, 1925
JimNorCal: The tournament book I have gives annotations for this game by Selesniev. He passes over this move in silence.
