Tal1949: Yeah, I agree too. Games with interesting results are better than the draw-fest at London. But, of course, the winner needs to play sparkling chess as well. Hopefully Giri or Carlsen can put the hammer down now.
   Dec-11-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
Tal1949: This was a lovely game played by AlphaZero. Stockfish 8 was totally clueless in many of these positions, confirmed by my super computer here. However, the latest development version of Stockfish handles these positions easily. So, Google, stop playing marketing games against old ...
   Dec-11-17 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2017 (replies)
Tal1949: I am sorry Google- but this game is just ridiculous. Stockfish 8 does not play any of the moves that you claim it does. 11. Kh1 12. a5 35. Nc4 These are all moves that a 3200 level engine would never play. In fact, 5 out of 28 moves in the middle game (17.8%) are not Stockfish 8
   Dec-02-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
Tal1949: 3 games finished in under 32 moves. Oh dear...
   Nov-13-17 Giovanni Leonardo Di Bona da Cutri
Tal1949: With a name like that he would have been a great footballer and a lover of young Madonnas.
   Nov-13-17 Ruy Lopez de Segura
Tal1949: Four games and not one Spanish opening from him. Oh dear...At the very least name an opening after somebody who plays it!
   Aug-02-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
Tal1949: Top 3- 1. Karjakin 2. Nakamura 3. So Carlsen mid field and a grumpy boy look.
   Jun-17-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
Tal1949: The 2016 WC combatants scored 7.5 out of 18. quick the world moves on. Just goes to show that the top 10 are closer than any other point in history due to engines and opening prep.
   May-20-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
Tal1949: <TD> A strong tournament? Carlsen, So, Caruana, Kramnik, Vachier-Lagrave, Anand, Nakamura, Karjakin, Aronian, Giri. Norway Chess 2017.

Tal1949: People like Hou are the women I admire- not the ones who hide behind reverse racism or sexism like most do- but perform to a high level on the open playing field of the international chess world.
