cro777
Member since May-27-03 · Last seen Dec-10-16
cro stands for Croatia and 7 is a lucky number.

Why 777? Something is repeated three times for emphasis. There are some occasions when 7 is not so lucky.

cro777: Why Magnus made a quick draw in the last classical game? https://cdn.tribuna.com/fetch/?url=... Chess24 commentators think he decided his advantage was bigger in 4 rapid games than in 1 classical game. Tiebreaks on Wednesday, Carlsen's 26th birthday: 4-game-rapid match 25 min + 10 ...

cro777: Karjakin's theorem. Referring to bloodless draws in the previous two games with the white pieces, Karjakin said: "It is better to play well than white."

cro777: <Open Defence: After 17.Ned2 (instead of 17.Neg5) Bf6 18.Be5 Re8 I was thinking of 19.Bc3. The idea was to exchange one of Black's best minor pieces and after say 19...Qd6 20.Bxf6 Qxf6 21.Rb1 White should be able to regroup his Knights to the K side.> This line looks rather ...

cro777: Jonathan Tisdall: "If Magnus was black here there'd be talk about him starting to push for a win soon." As Tal once observed, if Black equalizes, then he stands better.

cro777: All's well that ends well. Suleymanpasa Municipality RodostoSah GM Chess Tournament (Round 9) Tekirdag, Turkey, 2016.11.12 GM Eugenio Torre (2494) - GM Suat Atalik (2550) Larsen/Reti (1.b3 d5 2.Nf3) or Reti/Larsen (1.Nf3 d5 2.b3). This is one of the best ways to play this opening.

cro777: 26...Re6 is one of Carlsen's "misterious moves". The aim is to let his opponent think after every his move. And this move should not do any damage to his position.

cro777: In the position after 19Rd8 [DIAGRAM] Many grandmasters were expecting Carlsen to seize space with 20.g4, preventing Karjakin from pushing both his f- and h-pawns, which in turn means the bishop can't find a comfortable home on f6. Magnus opted for 20.g3, providing space for the ...
