Hello, I am just a casual chess player who like to kibitz on GM games.

   blueofnoon has kibitzed 786 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-14-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Nakamura will play in the world rapid and blitz championships as a rating favorite. Looking forward to see how he will do in these events.
 
   Dec-09-13 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Once thing you can see from Kramnik is that he got a tendency to complain AFTER the competition. You often hear him or his fans saying "I hate KO format, I hate round robin, I hate tie-breaker rules" and all sort of blah blah. But those rules were there when he signed the ...
 
   Nov-25-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Usage of words like "understanding", "exciting", without giving definition to them, adds no value to one's argument.
 
   Nov-16-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: I am happy as we don't have to hear "Vishy is hiding prep" "Carlsen can beat only low rated players" and other nonsense anymore.
 
   Sep-22-13 FIDE Grand Prix Paris (2013) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Nakamura of course is one of the favorites.
 
   Sep-04-12 Chess Olympiad (2012) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: 2700+ players are higher rated than sub 2700s because they are stronger. There are good reasons why a player is over/under 2700 rating.
 
   Jul-16-12 ACP Golden Classic (2012) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Here is Jobava and Muzychuk interviewed. http://youtu.be/Gn0cx5T3WzE
 
   Jun-17-12 Tal Memorial (2012) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: Yes, even if Carlsen and Radjabov win their respective games, still Caruana will come ahead of them unless he loses. So you have to ask. Why did they bother playing blitz at all?
 
   Jun-17-12 Anand - Gelfand World Chess Championship (2012) (replies)
 
blueofnoon: So, how can you explain why Fischer stopped playing altogether once he won the world championship? It's understandable that he had problems with the way FIDE could arrange world championship, but why did he have to stop playing in all kinds of competition?
 
   May-01-12 Nakamura vs Sutovsky, 2012 (replies)
 
blueofnoon: "Fighting player Nakamura" is in fact just a myth. He certainly used to beat a lot of weaker players out of almost any kind of position, but once he got to 2700+ in 2009 he became much more cautious. If I am not mistaken, in the last 3 years Nakamura drew more games within 20 ...
