achieve: One game at a time; So is showing his potential, despite his formerly perceived lack of resilience. Or passiveness. Much like the bit younger Giri. This is just an expected result from a major player bouncing back at a young age, 3/4 whites, but a few games are to be played yet. All

achieve: And I just concluded a brief survey of Carlsen's Wijks from 2008-2013, Result is that he clearly clamps down on the lower half of the field and scores significantly, increasing his rating, not at all scoring barely even, as you claimed. Still a smallish sample, but these are some of
   Mar-04-15 Hans-Joachim Federer (replies)
achieve: Remember that the hard courts in Dubai are among the fastest on tour. Fed has the serious edge there, if he remains calm and just plays his natural game. Although here the edge was mostly Fed's ability to serve himself out of trouble. Djokovic no doubt will make up the deficit in ...

achieve: I do not love Garri, but love and admire his drive in chess, and how he puts out his energy to promote chess, also among children. I've met him a few times and he was genuinely nice, not conceated at all. Not to me. Considering I was a nobody that does say quite something.
