   Mar-19-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Petrosianic: After today's results, I'm inclined to count both Kramnik and Ding out. Not mathematically, but realistically. Ding didn't lose, but he fell out of a 3rd place tie down to 4th. Overtaking 3 players isn't easy. I might change my mind, but I'm going to consider him out of ...
   Mar-19-18 W So vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Petrosianic: <Marmot PFL: Judit says draw, so far I think I agree.> Probably, but Judit lost a R vs. N ending herself once.
   Mar-14-18 Fischer vs Larsen, 1958 (replies)
Petrosianic: Yeah, that's why nobody ever took that book seriously.
   Mar-13-18 Kramnik vs Grischuk, 2018
Petrosianic: How much have you bet on him?
   Mar-13-18 Leko vs Kramnik, 2004 (replies)
Petrosianic: <After the combinational flurry ending on move 23, it was too easy to reach for the script that was titled "And White converts his material advantage".> What material advantage? At the time, Black had a Rook, Bishop and Pawn for the Queen, so technically no advantage at ...

Petrosianic: <HeMateMe>: <In other words, you didn't vote in 2008.> By saying that, you're walking back pretty much every other political post you've ever written. If 3rd party candidates effectively don't exist at all, then you're validating the idea of voting for the lesser of ...
   Mar-09-18 Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1897
Petrosianic: <F47> <10. Bxh7, is that even sound?> <Calli>: <Suggest a defense> 11...Kh6 looks a lot better than 11...Kg6. 12. Qd2 is the most obvious, but then what? 12...Qe8 13. Nxe6+ Kh7 14. Nxf8 Bxf8. Black has two pieces for a rook, and looks better. Maybe White
   Mar-09-18 Capablanca - Marshall (1909) (replies)
Petrosianic: The whole story behind this match is more or less as follows: 1) Max Judd, who had held the US Championship briefly in the early 1890's tried to organize a tournament for the US Championship, hoping to win it himself, but in fact Marshall won it. 2) But there was a big hue and ...
   Mar-09-18 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
Petrosianic: Fischer's games aren't as well known as you'd think. Some of them are. Everything in M60MG is well known, as are his games from 1971-2 and the first game from 1992. Other than that, he's more kwown by reputation. I once tried to canvas opinion on Fischer's best game of 1968 and ...
   Mar-08-18 O Ladva vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Petrosianic: Engines don't rule on whether a draw is alive or not.
