alexmagnus: The problem with this approach is, the advanced the discoveries get, the less known they are to general public. Every high school student knows Newton and can recite his laws of motion, but who can name the newest advances in quantum mechanics and people responsible for them?
 
   Feb-21-18 Kirill Shevchenko vs Kamsky, 2018 (replies)
 
alexmagnus: Not really. Kamsky lost seven points here. Upsets usually equal themselves out, that's why Elo ratings are all about <probability>.

alexmagnus: <ChessHigherCat> Don't know about the rest of Europe, but in Germany, while there many homeless people, they are not "truly" homeless - that is, not those people sleeping under the bridge. Homeless asylums are numerous, and homeless people get money from the state (and ...

alexmagnus: <Players are forced to rely on their talent and creativity (instead of rote memorization of opening lines)> If 960 becomes the standard, this "advantage" will quickly go away and players will memorize 960 theory. It's 960 times more? So what? Modern theory grew by more than

alexmagnus: <He was still in the top 100 well into his 70s, nobody else has ever done that> Korchnoi last appeared in the top 100 at the age of 75. The closest in the Elo era was Najdorf, top 100 at 74.

alexmagnus: And I have a good idea where the Candidates misconception comes from. From the same source from which some kibitzer here put Taimanov and Hort into the same generation. Fischer fever. Fischer <did> become GM by qualifying to the Candidates, and I guess people assume since ...

alexmagnus: To me delay is better because I see it as counter-intuitive to have more time on the clock at some point of the game than at the game's start

alexmagnus: Last survivor of... For a start, 1948 Soviet championship and 1953 Candidates (but not 1952 Interzonal - Matanovic is alive too). I know it because I always track the earliest Soviet Championship, Interzonal, Candidates and WC match that has survivors.

  WannaBe: <diceman> Funny stuff! Nice.

Here's a list of countries in Asia, look under 'I'.

  alexmagnus: Israel is geographically as Asian as it can be. Look at the countries it borders: Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Egypt (Egypt being one of the few countries to lie on two continents, Asia and Africa).

Israel plays in European competitions in many sports, but this is for political reason - otherwise scandals with pairings like Israel-Palestine or Israel-Iran are just bound to happen.

Interestingly, in soccer Israel originally played not even in Europe but in ... Oceania, to escape Asia.
