   Jun-27-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: A question for players from the US is the Bronstein-delay type of time control that's used in the Grand Tour at all common there? I know that "delay" rather than increments is supposed to be more familiar in the US than in other places, but I thought it's "countdown"-delay (i.e., ...
 
   Jun-24-17 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2017 (replies)
 
Nf8: Carlsen actually flagged after 83...Nc3 https://twitter.com/OlimpiuUrcan/st...
 
   Jun-24-17 Li Chao vs V Fedoseev, 2017
 
Nf8: Fedoseev plays the Berlin, and on move 18 his pawn structure looks like after the Allies bombing.
 
   Jun-21-17 World Team Chess Championship (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: <Country-ranked players for each team: China: 1-2-3-4-13 Russia: 4-5-7-10-12 Ukraine: 3-4-6-7-8 India: 3-4-5-6-12 Poland: 1-2-4-5-7 USA: 4-6-7-8-9 Belarus: 1-2-3-5-6 Turkey: 2-3-4-5-8 Norway: 4-5-7-10-14 Egypt: 6-7-8-9-13 China is the only team to bring ...

Nf8: ...And if by "ever did" you mean not even once, Kramnik also did (in MTel 2005).
 
   Jun-10-17 European Individual Chess Championship (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: <sonia91> Maybe, though I noticed that last time they "smuggled" another winner of a European zonal as a FIDE wildcard as well - Kovalenko, who won a special Baltic zonal (which takes place this cycle as well).

Nf8: Originally advertised as including all the top-10 rated players ( http://norwaychess.no/en/2017/02/14... ), they'll have to settle for "only" 8 (or 10 of the top-12), since Mamedyarov & Ding Liren have meanwhile climbed up on the rating list, pushing Giri & Karjakin down.

Nf8: E Cordova vs Sasikiran, 2017 <cro777: Using chess to explain science: The law of preserving energy. In round 4, Emilio Cordova and Krishnan Sasikiran agreed to a draw after White played his first move (1.d4 and draw agreed). There has been some debate over the ethics of the practice,
 
   May-21-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: So after two tournaments, the main contenders for qualifying to the Candidates are Mamedyarov with 280 GP points (140 +140); Ding with 240 (70 + 170), Grischuk & MVL with 211 (140 +71). Nakamura, with only 141 (70 + 71), is probably not going to make it this time. Among those who so far
 
   Apr-12-17 US Championship (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: According to my calculations, the average rating of So's 67 opponents was ca. 2704 - about 20 points higher than the average of MVL's opponents in his 67 games streak during 2015-16. [see http://www.perpetualcheck.com/rang/... & http://www.perpetualcheck.com/rang/... ] Taking into ...
