   May-30-18 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
LlanelliCC: However, black's pieces look awkwardly placed. The queen on d3 effectively stops black's queen from coming out down the e file in advance of white's Re1. The knight on f5 is on the best square for the bishop but what is the best manoeuvre to get the bishop to f5?
   Apr-28-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
LlanelliCC: And I thought that Rudyard Kipling was dead.
   Apr-04-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
LlanelliCC: The idea of accepting 'equal' rights to women means that they have to have 'positive' rights in the first place so that they get practice at being equal and this encourages other women to take the game seriously. When apartheid was smashed in South Africa, their sports teams had ...
   Mar-27-18 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
LlanelliCC: So, black has the passed pawn but his king is uncomfortable.
   Mar-27-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
LlanelliCC: Sally, I got my dates wrong and I think I was disrespectful to Cliff by spelling his name wrongly. I think it must be Mayze. I was in Edinburgh between 1975 and 1978 and then I emigrated to Wales. If I remember correctly, I wasn't really in a chess frame of mind in those years ...

LlanelliCC: The modern trend to avoid sharp openings helps the older player a little.
   Mar-21-17 Winter Classic (2017) (replies)
LlanelliCC: Maybe President Trump should stop non-US players from entering the country so that the US Champion could then be called World Champion (as in World Series).
   Feb-14-17 Women's World Championship (2017) (replies)
LlanelliCC: The politics in these columns is really tedious. Basically, the AWOL is wonderful and everything else is s***. I have worked in the USA and it is the only 'civilised' country where you can wake up in the night to the sound of gun fire.
   Jan-19-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
LlanelliCC: And these conversations go on and on and on.... Two things are clear to me. (1) MC is the best player in the world because he is WC and he wins most tournaments he plays. (2) At some time MC will get knocked off his perch and, at the moment, the winner will probably come from the
   Dec-18-16 London Chess Classic (2016) (replies)
LlanelliCC: This is not a World website, it is American (with a few odd Brits joining in). In the USA they are desperate to have a champion so that Caruana, Nakamura and So are the heroes. Meanwhile, alternate possibilities are not discussed.
