achieve: ljfyffw You'll be number last, grab a hold of yourself and move away. You sound hysterical, and I am being kind here. Truth is you are trolling coz you must. Just seize, no more, nothing.

achieve: <We MUST understand this game> heh Like the spirit, and we did pull off some miraculous stuff, that if you read it back much later, it was just too deep and dense to latch on to it again. But as long as what you do now is fulfilling to an extent, then that is fine, too. It's ...

achieve: <luparu> I agree completely - yes, "completely" - that Caruana was already showing tremendous potential back in 2008 as far as i can remember. Comparisons will always be made, even by the most respected chess writers, and Botwinnik in NIC back in 1983 did so re GK and AK. This

achieve: Carlsen, Caruana, Karjakin, MVL, Giri, So, Ding liren, perhaps Richard Rapport, still very young, but that is the group born 1990 or later to challenge to take top (10) spots over the next few years, 5 of those in fact already top 10 on the live list. The excitement is palpable. ...

achieve: <Delftfan> - thank you for the links to articles and vids, which I watched and read with great interest and enjoyment :) Meanwhile Giri has marched to 7th place on the live rating list!

achieve: At the time meaning that I did a lot of listening and research into that period, but I was a child of the late 70s and early 80s, and on from there, chronologically. But always on the look-out for real music, luckily many good songs were hitting the charts back then. Yes - the ...
