   Dec-08-16 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Petrosianic: <Howard: But, wasn't 11...Nh5 later found to be overrated? Objectively, Fischer had better options, but it was the surprise value of that move that made it work---not the accuracy of the move itself.> Not just the surprise value of the move, but the fact that Fischer got ...
 
   Dec-07-16 Robert James Fischer
 
Petrosianic: <keypusher> <Now explain to me how that makes him a lesser player than Morphy.> He wasn't an American.

Petrosianic: "He's on to us, Chief."
 
   Dec-07-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
Petrosianic: <Rama: Here is a thought: treat it like a baseball game. Have nine 2-game mini-matches representing the nine innings. If you win a mini-match you get 1 point, even if you win both games. That is 18 games. If tied, go to extra innings in Rapids as before.> There are ...

   Dec-01-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Petrosianic: Capablanca, on the other hand, was moderately well known outside the chess world, once upon a time. But, like Fischer, a lot of that had to do with him personally, not the game. Chess is declining because board games in general are declining, in the electronic era. Also because ...
 
   Nov-30-16 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
 
Petrosianic: <Conrad93: The real World Champion will always be Carlsen regardless if Karjakin wins.> Um, no. Had Karjakin won, he would have been the Real World Champion, and the official "Best Player in the World".
 
   Nov-29-16 Georg Marco
 
Petrosianic: And many more!
 
   Nov-29-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
Petrosianic: If people find draw odds undesirable, my alternative would be that in the event of a drawn match, the title is vacated, with the winner of the next candidates becoming world champion. The problem is that the tiebreaker reintroduces some of the problems of the Pure Wins format ...
