The Rocket: What I would like to know is why Kramnik played the game as if it was a must-win situation. Did he really feel he's inferior to Chucky in the rapid and blitz? Chucky hasn't really been on fire as speed chess player for a very long time. He used to be force to be reckoned with.

The Rocket: <Gazza had 24 seconds on the clock compared to Liem's 8 minutes.> That's more than enough..I don't see how Liem would be able to swindle him there.
   Aug-16-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
The Rocket: Navaras win over Kasparov was a joke. His win over Kramnik in 2008 was far more impressive.

The Rocket: How would the no draw offer before move 30 stipulation in Dortmund affect the Aroninan-Svidler game? Would white be forced to decline a repetition?

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.
   Nov-06-16 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
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.
