   Nov-29-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
Olavi: Olavi: <Petrosianic: In the 1974 Candidates, I believe the tiebreaker was, quite literally, a coin toss. In 1983, we know about the Roulette wheel. I don't know about the other cycles,> You're right, and in 1980 Portisch "beat" Spassky on the bigger number of wins with black ...
 
   Nov-11-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
Olavi: Karjakin was born in the Soviet Union.
 
   Nov-04-16 Spassky vs Karpov, 1982
 
Olavi: This tournament was a TV cup with one hour games. According to the tny book Karpov had less than 2 minutes already after move 23.
 
   Oct-29-16 Geller vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
 
Olavi: A plausible reason might be unusual design of the scoresheet, for instance 24 moves / column. Has happened to many players.
 
   Oct-27-16 Ivanchuk vs Karpov, 1994
 
Olavi: <Jonathan Sarfati: <Everett:>, according to this site, Karpov beat Ivanchuk +5-1=20 in classical chess. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... As always, this site is wrong. The only other Karpov win is from the non-rated Polugaevsky birthday thematic tournament (still a ...
 
   Oct-21-16 USSR Zonal (1964) (replies)
 
Olavi: So the intro is not correct.
 
   Oct-21-16 Spassky - Tal Candidates Final (1965)
 
Olavi: In 1966 Petrosian got 2000 dollars for the win and Spassky half of that. But of course those sums were completely nominal; instead, the privilegies were colossal. Just a couple of months later Spassky won 5000 dollars winning the Piatigorsky Cup, and he got to keep it, and he could ...
 
   Oct-21-16 Karpov vs Smyslov, 1977
 
Olavi: Yes, there's not much black can do.
 
   Oct-21-16 Karpov vs Miles, 1977
 
Olavi: A famous case, he had earlier played the white side of the variation and had then considered it too dangerous to accept the rook: Miles vs Nunn, 1976
 
   Oct-16-16 Nimzowitsch vs Tartakower, 1928 (replies)
 
Olavi: I think they thought that Nf6xd5xc3 and then chipping away with c7-c5 was the the real Grünfeld.
