   Jun-06-19 Carlsen vs Grischuk, 2019 (replies)
Xenon Oxide: Alekhine-esque!
   Nov-19-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Xenon Oxide: The engine analysis says it's equal, but surely the position is much easier to play for black as a human. Or am I missing anything? I feel like positionally Caruana doesn't really have compensation for the missing pawn, the passed pawn isn't that strong.
   Mar-28-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Xenon Oxide: I don't know if Caruana will do as well seeing that he will only have 3 days' rest but we'll see!
   May-02-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
Xenon Oxide: This is why Anand won Shamkir chess 2015. In round 1 Anand would have defeated Carlsen under normal circumstances. Then in round 2 Anand would have won again. Same with round 2, 3, and 6, all of which he should have won. Also, in final round against Caruana, Anand played ...
   Feb-24-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
Xenon Oxide: To be fair, I just want to give the contrary opinion since everybody seem to be wanting to pile on Giri: he WAS saying that in response to Grischuk's criticism, which I think is hardly fair and way out of line. And Giri is right, in a sense: Grischuk had never come close to ...

Xenon Oxide: <Kinghunt> Can you add a round limit to your tally of supertournament wins by player? Think it might be useful. Cheers :-)
   Feb-06-15 Anand vs R Buhmann, 2012
Xenon Oxide: Can anyone explain the Knight sac for me? I don't understand what black was hoping for, at all.
   Jan-23-15 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
   Jan-20-15 Arno Nickel (replies)
Xenon Oxide: I support Arno Nickel's proposal! It's a great experiment to try, even if we don't agree with it in the end!
   Jan-16-15 Tata Steel Masters (2015) (replies)
Xenon Oxide: Looked at the Stockfish evals on chess24 and realized that the Carlsen-Caruana game was too complex even for the engines! It was widely fluctuating in evaluation even when the players played moves that agreed with engine 1st choice.
