Petrosianic: You first. Discuss.
 
   Apr-01-15 FIDE Women's World Chess Championship (2015) (replies)
 
Petrosianic: <dx9293>: <Petrosianic> The NCAA Basketball tournaments are one-and-done, as are the NFL playoffs. You're a "better" player/team, but you made one blunder and lost? Too bad. Perform when it counts most.> By that reasoning why have playoffs at all? Just start a ...

Petrosianic: <FSR>: <You'd think that a 6 1/2-year investigation costing almost $60 million, by three successive special prosecutors and independent counsels, resulting in no indictment of either Clinton for anything,> Well, he was impeached. The people who acquitted him made ...

Petrosianic: Not that hard. You can go by rankings. A 12 man tournament with the top 12 players in the country is stronger than one that's got only one of the top 12 in it.

Petrosianic: Make it 4004 B.C. That was Bishop Ussher's number.
 
   Mar-27-15 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Petrosianic: I don't remember that analysis, but I think it's a draw after 36. Kg4, and that the losing move comes later.
 
   Mar-27-15 Fischer - Taimanov Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) (replies)
 
Petrosianic: It's impressive because it's one of the very few shutouts in chess history.
 
   Mar-27-15 Mihail Marin (replies)
 
Petrosianic: Well, he's wrong. It only seems that way if you allow yourself to forget the goal of the game. And FWIW, in a stalemate, the stronger seeming side is usually the one who ends up humiliated. So, doubly wrong.
 
   Mar-27-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Petrosianic: It's funny that Fischer saw that Nakamura-Sasikiran game and cited it as evidence that chess was finished. One can certainly see his point that the chess engine is one of the worst things that ever happened to the game.
 
   Mar-27-15 Radolfo Tan Cardoso (replies)
 
Petrosianic: I don't think anyone thinks of Cardoso as a nobody, but he is one of those odd players, like Carlos Torre, and William Napier, who is remembered for one specific game and one only.
