Now living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, I grew up in several places in Canada and the U.S. as my father was in the Canadian navy. I learned chess at 12 and played in high school and the RA club in Ottawa, but my rating never rose above 1500. I've come back to playing only recently (I'm now in my 50's, born the same year as Kevin Spraggett).

Now I live and work in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Not much opportunity to play here yet, but I'm hoping.

PhilFeeley: Good start for the 3 at the top. I don't expect Anand to do very well.

PhilFeeley: <LucB> The news is on the official site: Ding had a bicycle accident and had to have hip surgery. He then withdrew from the tournament.

PhilFeeley: <MissScarlett: Kirsan was abducted by aliens; Henrik gave birth to one.> Technically, his wife did. A Miss should know that.

PhilFeeley: I know Filipinos are taking over the world, and therefore feel comfortable communicating here in Togalog. But let the rest of us follow the conversation: Use English!

PhilFeeley: <Are there any other examples where such redundancies are commonly used with acronyms, phrases, or other words?> I don't know whether you mean chess phrases or others, but I hear everyone saying "SIN number", which means Social Insurance Number number. (Maybe it's only a ...
   May-13-18 Dreev vs A Rakhmanov, 2018 (replies)
PhilFeeley: Interesting final position, similar to Bruzon-Shankland. White is up a pawn, but no certainty of a win. Then, black blunders with 44...Ba5. Probably resigned immediately, like I would. I can't see this as a time trouble problem. I wonder what happened.

PhilFeeley: I know it's a Trompowsky, but after move 8, it looks an awful other like a London.
   May-05-18 Carlsen vs Kulaots, 2002 (replies)
PhilFeeley: I'm puzzled. This looks more like a QGA than a QGD, since 4...dxc4.
