   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Nf8: 52.Rd3! threatens 53.Rd5 & 53.Rd6, both can't be repelled. 1-0
 
   Aug-11-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: <<Will there be a tie break if Carlsen beats Aronian and MVL and Vishy draw. All three will have the same points but Carlsen will have 3 wins.> That's the toughest one - I think there's actually going to be a playoff between Carlsen & MVL, because 4.4 (winner without playoff) ...
 
   Aug-08-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
Nf8: Position after 43.g5 (last pawn move): [DIAGRAM] Position after 74...Re7, 31 moves later: [DIAGRAM] White hasn't exactly made huge progress.
 
   Aug-08-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
Nf8: <An Englishman> I don't see in what way you think Carlsen did err - what should he have played instead of 45...c4, so that White would need a "miracle"? 45...Rc6 46.Rb6 and Black hasn't made any progress.
 
   Aug-07-17 Seirawan vs Tal, 1980 (replies)
 
Nf8: <I was the team captain and he (Seirawan) played second board. In our match against Russia, Tal offered a draw to Yaz and he approached me and said, "Tal offered me a draw but I think I'm better so I'm going to refuse." And he won a very nice game. Impressive, because Tal had a big ...
 
   Aug-06-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
 
Nf8: Btw, Carlsen talked today with Maurice Ashley about this game after his win vs. So; he mentioned missing f4 (which MVL already noted yesterday), but it turns out <blackdranzer> was also kind of right - he said he saw that 46.Rd2 was very good, but thought Rg2 was more "stylish"...

Nf8: <stst: Have to check history whether this is the first win of a gal among all rest men??> Of course not - Judit Polgar had quite a few, and several of them more impressive than this one; most impressive of all is probably Madrid 1994, where at the age of 18 she won by a margin of ...
 
   Aug-01-17 Wesley So (replies)
 
Nf8: <AylerKupp: Yes, section 1.5 apparently allows the President of FIDE to have the final word. If challenged, it would then be interesting to see if Carlsen having the highest average rating for the year could be considered an "unforeseen event". Particularly since Carlsen's has had ...
 
   Jul-23-17 Dortmund (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: If one actually bothers to look at the games played and not just their results, what happened in the final round shouldn't be such a huge surprise - there were a lot of hard-fought games, especially starting from round 4, including some 4-5 draws which could have easily ended in a ...
 
   Jul-16-17 FIDE Grand Prix Geneva (2017) (replies)
 
Nf8: <Normally, +1 worth less than 90 GP points, +2 worth more than 100. For Radja, Ding, and MVL, very clearly +1 will not be good enough. They need +2 in Palma to qualify.> Sounds right - in FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) +2 was worth 140 points (shared 1-3), in FIDE Grand Prix ...
