   Aug-22-17 Wesley So (replies)
 
SirRuthless: Been somewhat quiet around these parts but Wesley has World Cup coming up in just a week or two. This is his chance to grab qualification despite what the rating lists say. I believe he has a favorable draw, at least in classical chess terms. If he reaches the finals then no ...
 
   Aug-19-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
SirRuthless: Caruana is an academic player first and foremost but really, fast chess has less of a place for that skillset than Classical. So much of what he is best at is blunted by clock pressure. You have to play on feel much of the time and making snap judgments and his instincts when he
 
   Aug-17-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: The B pair is clearly stronger. ;-p
 
   Aug-17-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
 
SirRuthless: Clearly Garry has failed to meet the extreme expectations of the commentary team who seem as though they are struck by lightning whenever he loses. This was not an unexpected outcome. I hope he can be sharp enough to nick a game or two off the big guns in the blitz portion of ...
 
   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: If Magnus fails to win World Cup or London then it will have been well over a year since he won a major classical tournament. Used to be out of this world, now just another top 5 player.
 
   Aug-11-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
 
SirRuthless: The 2800 club belches out Caruana and So like so much gas from a can of beer an hour or two after the picnic has ended. MVL stakes his claim as Super tournament winner. He secures a place for himself now in the elite circuit for a few years at the least and lets everyone know he
 
   Aug-11-17 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: Total disaster game for Nakamura. Black's Re6 idea ended any hopes white had of clear superiority and the gxf locked down the pawn structure for good, no more breaks for white and it becomes only a two result game. White doesn't even look like he knows what he's doing in this ...
 
   Aug-10-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: Had black played 36... Rd7 he probably would have won. Great back and forth game. Black outplayed white in the opening, blew it at the time control and white had a nearly winning edge and proceeded to blow it once the time trouble had ended. Nice to see early novelties in the ...
 
   Aug-09-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: <studentt> 13...Bxb2 is actually suggested by the engine and after 14.Bxc6 Bxc1 15.Bxd5 Bx3 16.Bh6 Be6(important not to try to avoid The Exchange because Rd8 for instance and now Qd4-Qg7# is an unmeetable threat now since f6 is no longer possible due to the Bd5 Xray on he ...
 
   Aug-08-17 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
 
SirRuthless: This is a disturbing move to face so early. In 212 games played, according to Maurice Ashley, 10.Bf2 has been played 211 times. Only other move has been 10.Bc4. This is totally fresh. Cutting edge prep makes fab a contender and it has exploded MVL's mind.
