   Kain3 has kibitzed 64 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-28-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Kain3: In my opinion the time most top GM's spent on openings, Carlsen spent on studying middle- and endgames and it payed off. I never bought this "Magnus is lazy" bullcrap people tend to say, there's no way he's playing with such precision and dominance for years just by relying on his ...
 
   Aug-14-15 Richard Rapport (replies)
 
Kain3: <If he starts to take openings seriously again and develops a decent repertoire then he certainly has the talent to do so. The strange about Rapport is that initially, if memory serves, he actually used to play more orthodox openings and that's what made him successful. All of a ...
 
   Jul-30-15 Biel (2015) (replies)
 
Kain3: <Everett: Seems to be the case with so many players like Baadur and Richard here. They are so creative, yet against more experienced and solid competition, the results slip quite a bit.> Yes, but people tend to forget that Rapport is still only 19 years old. We don't know how ...
 
   Mar-12-15 Peter Leko (replies)
 
Kain3: <He has +1 score against Carlsen.> Also +1 against Grischuk, and +3(!) against Caruana. He's tied with Nakamura. The inner talent is definitely there, but something needs to change (his style & his coach) for him to be able to fight back to the "world's elite" status.
 
   Jan-29-15 Tradewise Gibraltar (2015) (replies)
 
Kain3: <I don't agree at all with how desirable it is for a young player's rating to be steadily increasing upwards. Because Magnus Carlsen demonstrated the right way, playing any opening even in his young teens and actually experimenting with a wild attacking style, and losing many games
 
   Nov-22-14 Alexander Morozevich (replies)
 
Kain3: Agree about Leko and Shirov is even worse, can't remember the last time he was competitive. Ivanchuk is so inconsistent he might still surprise as, but overally it's like that he'll decline. I'm not sure about Morozevich yet, he's always going up and down in the ratings like Ivanchuk,
 
   Aug-29-14 Zoltan Almasi (replies)
 
Kain3: Very strong chess player who somehow never makes the headlines or could crack the top-15.
 
   Jul-22-14 R Rapport vs T Rogers, 2014 (replies)
 
Kain3: <That comment makes no sense.> Ok, maybe what I said was an overstatement. I should probably have said "even 500-1600 rated player don't often run into a mate like that"
 
   Jul-21-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
 
Kain3: Fourth highest elo with Leko, Rapport, Almasi, Polgar and Balogh. Solid team, it would be nice to win a gold medal again..
 
   Jul-21-14 Judit Polgar (replies)
 
Kain3: <Even if Hou surpasses Judit's all-time peak, a better measure of her strength is whether she makes top ten, as Judit did. To paraphrase Rasheed Wallace: career don't lie.> I agree. Also, even if Hou beats Judit in games (which will happen soon in my opinion) she's still has a ...
