   Mar-18-18 Aronian vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Nf8: Aronian kind of confused move order and missed a drawing opportunity as late as move 32 with 32. Qh4! (instead of Bc4+) and now the pattern of the perpetual after 32...exf4 33. Bc4+ Kh7 34. Bd3+ Kg8 35. Bc4+ is relatively easy to see, but the trickier part to spot is 32... e4 33. h7+ ...
   Mar-18-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Nf8: <Kramnik failing is no surprise. But, wow, Aronian's meltdown is very surprising!> Not sure why - an Aronian meltdown during the Candidates is one of the surest things in top level chess, only in the three previous tournaments (2013, 2014, 2016) it happened in the second half, and

Nf8: <This must have been a bitter pill for Kramnik to swallow>
   Mar-14-18 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
Nf8: <keypusher> Sure - I actually didn't mean to imply that Kramnik is necessarily right and you're wrong, just thought it's worth quoting what he said in full.

Nf8: <Last tiebreak with games lost by Carlsen: Candidate match 2007 vs Aronian (classical and rapid match drawn, lost the blitz match)> Yes, mid-2007 vs Aronian. Since then Carlsen won 9 consecutive tiebreak playoffs: Biel 07 vs Onischuk, Bilbao 11 vs Ivanchuk, Bilbao 12 vs Caruana, ...
   Nov-01-17 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
Nf8: <SChesshevsky> Well, there's the minimum rating specified in the regulations - used to be 2700, now 2725 - to guarantee that the wildcard is a top player (though it's enough to have this rating in a single rating list during the year). So Kasparov could have been chosen if he ...
   Oct-01-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: <We'll find out what's more important to Nakamura - five rating points or making a desperate attempt to win the tournament.> Against a well-prepared Carlsen, any deviation from the drawing line after 13.Qc1 would just be a desperate attempt to lose...
   Sep-30-17 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: ...And 35.Qe3 just loses on the spot to 35...Bf4! (36. Qxf4 Nxh3+, 36. Qc3 Bxd2 37. Qxd2 Nf3+).
   Sep-30-17 Isle of Man Open (2017) (replies)
Nf8: <Sally Simpson> ...And you're doing it once again. Truly, you provide a textbook example of how someone committed to a conspiracy theory simply refuses to look at the evidence, which I provided for you. I say "refuses," because I find it very hard to believe you genuinely find ...
   Sep-21-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Nf8: It's often tempting to take an easy draw with Black, but this time - certainly in retrospect - it looks like a bad judgment call by So, considering Ding was still very upset from missing the win in the first game and that he didn't play the opening well. In the post-match interview Ding
