   Apr-26-18 A Giri vs Carlsen, 2018
Marmot PFL: When two good friends play the outcome is usually peaceful.
   Apr-26-18 US Championship (2018)
Marmot PFL: <Nakamura's 1. b3 and subsequent moves remind me of what Reverend John Owen would play in the 1800s, 1. b3 as White and 1...b6 as Black. And that's probably not a good thing.> Won me a few extra bucks with the bookie. Now someone play 1 g3
   Apr-26-18 Wesley So (replies)
Marmot PFL: They are following Mamedov-Giri (draw) earlier today but only for 6 moves. I doubt Fabi is surprised by 5 Bd3
   Apr-26-18 Navara vs Ding Liren, 2018 (replies)
Marmot PFL: 33...b4! starts a series of moves that soon destroy the white position. No defense to 37...Re2 except to give up the queen. Ding Liren passes Wesley So and Anish Giri to move to #6 in live ratings
   Apr-26-18 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2018 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Topalov played very well for 20-25 moves but then when time ran low inaccuracies began to appear which the WC was able to exploit. No single big error evidently but small ones which accumulated in a big advantage for white.
   Apr-26-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
Marmot PFL: Ding Liren now #6 on the live rating list. Highest ever for a Chinese player I am pretty sure.
   Apr-26-18 Kenneth S Rogoff (replies)
Marmot PFL: <Thanks, I never did consider how far reaching the effect of American exceptionalism could be.> In the Michigan governor race one of the Republicans accused one of the Democrats of being in the Muslim Brotherhood. The Michigan GOP responded saying hate speech in any form ...
   Apr-25-18 Z Izoria vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Marmot PFL: When there is only one open file it has to be worth something. White controls and uses the d file to invade black's position.
   Apr-25-18 A Giri vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
Marmot PFL: 23...Na5 looks OK. Black can block the file with Nc4 and if Bd6 Qb6+.
   Apr-25-18 P Tregubov vs Efimenko, 2008 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Looks easy 33 Rh8+ Kxh8 34 Qh6+ Kg8 35 Ng5 unless I am missing something.
