   Apr-22-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
 
Maatalkko: Overgod's post is the intellectual equivalent of going on a sports blog and claiming that he runs a 2:10 marathon, benches 405, and golfs under par, when he's not busy playing Major League Baseball.
 
   Apr-10-15 US Championships (2015) (replies)
 
Maatalkko: <devere: There is of course no "note take rule".> FIDE Laws of Chess: 8.1b The scoresheet shall be used only for recording the moves, the times of the clocks, offers of a draw, matters relating to a claim and other relevant data. 11.5 It is forbidden to distract or annoy ...
 
   Mar-03-15 C Lauche vs D Koenig, 2001 (replies)
 
Maatalkko: 5...Nd4 looks uncomfortable for White.
 
   Feb-25-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
 
Maatalkko: It really is remarkable that Carlsen is the only player who is a true outlier on the statistical curve. It's not even that he is uber-competitive and consistent, a la Kasparov or Fischer, or invincible, a la Capablanca. Carlsen loses games regularly and even plays dubious openings

Maatalkko: <Rolfo> Everything I said was sarcastic, but if he actually is trying to write an earth-shaking academic paper I wish him the best of luck.

Maatalkko: What a bad score for the Russians. Put their points together and they still tie for last.
 
   Feb-05-15 GRENKE Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
 
Maatalkko: I think Carlsen is sandbagging. He's #1 by enough that he can afford to play some peaceful draws and "interesting" games even though it hurts his rating. That has the added benefit of throwing off his closer rivals for when he wants to go full strength on them. He is waiting for

Maatalkko: A win or draw as White against Felgaer (2575) tomorrow should keep Wei Yi in the 2700 club for the official March rating list. If so, he will be officially make 2700 at 15 years 9 months.
 
   Jan-30-15 Tradewise Gibraltar (2015) (replies)
 
Maatalkko: So it should be Nakamura - Adhiban and Wei - Vazquez then?
 
   Jan-27-15 B Galmandakh vs Motylev, 2015 (replies)
 
Maatalkko: 25...Nd3?? was a massively flawed tactic. It looks like Black lazily assumed 28. Rxe1 was forced, overlooking that after 28. Ne3 his Knight is trapped. Strange oversight for a nearly 2700 player. Was this perhaps a touch move mistake? If Black grabbed his Knight too quickly, there
