achieve: To illustrate my remark on Nina Simone, I submit: Instrumental version of a tremendous song, written in the 1920s, Bye Bye Blackbird. Sheer genius and craft at the piano, but it is her soul that she reveals, which makes this a more than ...

achieve: <Rocket> That seems to be baloney; some of the best games of the past decade are from those two. Kramnik and Anand are giants, and tend to pick their moment against eachother.

achieve: I'd say this is the perfect time for Giri to "stabilize" with a trademark draw. If Kramnik lets him; Big Vlad got more fire in his belly than Giri, who's just about half his age.
