The Rocket: <With increments Carlen is the best blitz player but without them he himself said Nakamura is better at bullet and admitting that fact didn't seem to bother him at all. Why does it bother you that others agree with Carlsen in that assessment? Seek help. I did and it improved ...

The Rocket: Paul Morphy is the most gifted chess player of all time in my opinion. Robert Fischer doesn't even come even close, as great as he was his during the final candidate run. Fischer trained like a dog and did not totally dominate until the 70s. Morphy's opposition was around 15-1800

The Rocket: <A number of kibitzers just think other top players are catching up to him. I'm not convinced it's anything but a blip in form, but it's not crazy to believe otherwise.> Carlsen has definately been more human recently. But he looks pretty crisp to me.
 
   Nov-27-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
The Rocket: <Why should they give it to Anand? What special claim does he have to be the surprise/upset winner?> That was what's popularily known as a joke.

The Rocket: <Kramnik's recent performance is also another hit on the notion that everything in the here and now must be superior to that of the past.> Kramnik has been milking lower rated players in open formats to achieve his "highest ever" rating.

The Rocket: And yes, even without increments.
 
   Oct-17-16 Nigel Short (replies)
 
The Rocket: Strong play so far in the match. The French appeared to be a wise opening choice against your particular opponent. Keep it up, Nigel.

The Rocket: Does the blitz tournament start in a few hours?
 
   Jul-31-16 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
 
The Rocket: Yes, this was an odds game of a completely decisive pawn in the middle game, which Carlsen would have never entered unless there was a forced win- which he wrongly believed optically. Whites position sucks after f4. No GM would enter that with a fight state of mind, I don't like ...
