Marmot PFL: <What I will definitely stand by is that there is not undeveloped land, or extrremely little, for sale in SF for building a new home.If you want a new home you will have to buy an existing one and knock it down. Assuming that's perrmitted.> Free housing here, just do as ...
   Jun-23-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
Marmot PFL: Would have been a stronger event with Ivanchuk, still a force in blitz and rapid chess.
   Jun-23-17 Mamedyarov vs Van Wely, 2016 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Van Wely trusted his opponent.

Marmot PFL: Some days it seems almost no strong players have birthdays, then you have days like this with Svidler, Petrosian, Motylev as well as one or two others who would be top player on most days.
   Jun-16-17 W So vs Aronian, 2017
Marmot PFL: <48. Ke3 h5 49. f4+ Kg4 (or 49. Kf2 Kf4) wins > 49 b3 is winning for white i believe, 49...h5 50 a4 ba4 51 ba4 h4 52 a5 h3 53 Kf2 etc. if either side tries too hard to win such endings they often end up losing.
   Jun-16-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: the Poisoned Pawn variation is always a risk, for both players. Black could have tried to keep the pawn with 17...Rh7 which the site computer likes. returning the pawn is understandable and Caruana thought was a draw after 22...Rxh2 instead of the awful Ng8.

Marmot PFL: <Round 9 Pairings KRAMNIK VS GIRI KARJAKIN VS LAGRAVE CARUANA VS NAKAMURA SO VS ARONIAN ANAND VS CARLSEN> 1st three games I think draw, So may press Aronian to help Nakamura and Carlsen might want another win to finish strong in front of his fans.
   Jun-15-17 Nakamura vs W So, 2017
Marmot PFL: Nakamura wanted an early draw to give So more time to prepare for tomorrow.
   Jun-15-17 A Giri vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Merciful of Anish not to drag this out to stalemate.
   Jun-15-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: <In the ending White is a pawn down but he is playing with an extra king and this suggests that Kramnik allowed White's king to develop and become a weapon before he had brought his own king out..> Kramnik almost forced this to happen by playing 33...Rb2+ and 35...Bxc5
