Tugas is the Visayan name of a Philippine tree whose light-colored wood is often used for the white pieces of a chess set. The black pieces are best carved from the dark wood of the tree we call kamagong.

TugasKamagong: I agree with nonoyski. Hey Wesley, you gotta spiff up your wardrobe, man. Don't settle for an Armani. If you're still in London go to one of their famous tailors and get yourself a bespoke suit or two.

TugasKamagong: Yu Yangyi's 11/13 is probably a record. Since the WJCC became a 13-round Swiss in 1975, the winning score has usually been 10.5, 10, or 9.5. From the cg database I can only find the scores back to 2006; I've no idea if in the earlier championships anybody scored 11 or higher. ...

TugasKamagong: A nice line would've been 28.Rxd4 cxd4 29.Qa2+ Qb3 30.Rb1

TugasKamagong: Wesley's name now shaded green in the link given by <cro777>. . Also in green are the names of Jerad Docena and Jan Jodilyn Fronda. Three players listed as IMs are now actually GMs: Kovalev, Eliseev, and Duda. Wesley's the only ...

TugasKamagong: <hellopolgar: how can a 2650 GM miss this? (black to move and win)> [DIAGRAM] For those who, like me, couldn't place this game right away and had to search for it among the 32 games played today, this is Morozevich-Leitao after 35.Qb4. Black played 35...Bf6 and ...

TugasKamagong: One player here has got his name rendered a** backwards. In Chinese the surname comes first, and it's that way for 9 of the players. The only exception is Yu Yangyi. Not sure who's at fault here. Probably not the the guy who created this tournament page, as he merely linked to
   May-08-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
TugasKamagong: Carlsen is 22,a nice poetic age, so I looked at who else played for the men's world title while still in his 20s. My list: Lasker was 25 in 1894, Marshall 29 in 1907, Smyslov 27 in 1948, Bronstein 27 in 1951, Tal 23 in 1960, Spassky 29 in 1966, Fischer 29 in 1972, Karpov 27 in

TugasKamagong: R.I.P. NM Roger Abella, who died the other day at the age of 61.

TugasKamagong: Carlsen says "I mean" or "Well, I mean" too much. Radjabov and Ivanchuk say "OK" or "Well, ok" too much. If it was up to me, I'm not sure I would hire them as tv commentators. Good thing they can get by on playing chess.
   Apr-01-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
TugasKamagong: The scenario I outlined a few posts above didn't even come close to the real thing. My only lucky guess was giving Ivanchuk even chances against Kramnik. Carlsen missing 31.Bd5 was uncharacteristic of him. Even less characteristic was getting into zeitnot. His making the time ...
