King Radio
Member since Jul-29-11 · Last seen Dec-26-16
Favorite player is probably Lasker. Others are Tarrasch, Capa, Tal, Fischer, Kortchnoi and, of the moderns, Kramnik and Magnus Carlsen. So many of Lasker's great wins seem more like stage dramas than games.

Aficionado of chess history, and I hate people passing on manufactured stories, myths, and unresearched crap. Big thanks to Edward Winter and the many other historians who attempt to print the truths, rather than the legends.

   Nov-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
King Radio: <Given that I'm still undecided on forcing the loser of such a high level game to sit and analyze the game and then answer 20 tedious questions.> I don't think they should, but if it's in the contract, it's in the contract. I'd rather they brought only the winner to the ...
 
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: <You mean, by blundering into a perpetual around move 20 that his super-GM opponent misses?> Sure, the same sort of thing that has been going on in WC matches since they started being played. The difference nowadays is that super strong engines exist which point out these ...
 
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Congratulations to Karjakin, who didn't do anything wrong besides missing a winning continuation in severe time trouble, but that was a crazy game from Carlsen. It's the weirdest game I've ever seen him play. That's the kind of game you'd expect to see from one of the anti-solid ...
 
   Nov-18-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Too bad the internet, and its attendant chess experts, weren't around for the Capa - Alekhine match...the astute and witty 'horrible, boring match' and 'Capadrawnka' comments would have added immensely to the event. On the other hand, without their super strong chess engines by ...

King Radio: Good luck finding a host/ sponsor for a 'draws don't count!!!' match. Here's a hint - you won't. The chess world has already sen what a farce that type of match becomes.
 
   Nov-14-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Hard to say if there was ever a possible win (even when 'advised' by the strongest chess software), but Carlsen will be kicking himself for not making it a little harder near the end. This was a great game, worthy of a world championship. I thought both players showed their ...
 
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Heck of a combination by Karjakin close to time control. Far from obvious.
 
   Mar-27-16 Caruana vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: <When you guys say he missed a win, are you talking about one of those crazy tablebase lines that lasts 107 moves and would never actually work in OTB chess under current rules?> Apparently that's exactly what they are talking about...
 
   Mar-24-16 Topalov vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Really interesting game. Caruana lost control of the position just before the time control (of course, managing time is part of the game, too), making it messy. Wish they would have played it out, but I'm sure both players thought they might be losing...the possible jet setting ...
 
   Mar-24-16 Anand vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
King Radio: Very impressive play against a dogged defender by Anand, especially coming off the loss to Caruana. Anand has been tough with the white pieces.
