Here's everything a CG member might care to know about me:

1) Kramnik rather than Topalov
2) Karpov rather than Fischer
3) Capa would've won the rematch
4) 1. Nf3! wins.

And thems the beginning and end of it.

danielpi: <HeMateMe><Topalov could have handled his loss very intelligently, by saying "Anand outplayed me, and I hope to get another chance by winning the Candidates matches". Instead, he has to bad mouth the champ, and look foolish as a result. > Topalov demonstrates his usual

danielpi: <theagenbiteofinwit><I maintain that Carlsen's relationship to Kramnik is parallel to that of Fischer and Petrosian. It took Fischer years to come out ahead of Petrosian, but when he finally did, no one came between him and the Championship.> Interesting observation. ...

danielpi: <autolycus><Luck doesn't exist the way most people think it does. If it can be either ontological or epistemological, then it's like energy. Things seem to cause it or seem to be caused by it, but there is actually no reason (except for convenience of worldview) to believe

danielpi: <chancho><It looks like Anand is going to blow this game also, true to his tradition. A draw here is as good as a loss for White!> Not necessarily.> Yar. If Anand can survive Game 12, then he has good odds in rapids. Pressure on Topalov to win in classical time ...

danielpi: <Nigel><I don't know what my politics are. I do know, however, that I was commissioned to write a lengthy article on the Greek economy by the Guardian last week. To my astonishment they rejected it as being "too right-wing" (I was paid in full, by the way). I have ...

danielpi: Incidentally, that's a 78.125% win ratio with the White side of the Catalan in classical time control, from 2006-2007. The ratio increases to 84.375% if you calculate over his whole career, and if you don't count the Deep Fritz match.
 
   May-04-10 Anand - Topalov World Chess Championship (2010) (replies)
 
danielpi: Everyone seems to disagree with people who think that the match is boring (myself included). Who, I wonder, are these purported "people" claiming that the match is boring then? I have yet to encounter anyone seriously espousing that view.

danielpi: New book out, titled "Wojo's Weapons", which looks interesting. Has anyone taken a look, and if so, is it worth buying? I'm always interested in 1. Nf3 stuff, although I think Wojo would play the King's Indian if Black wanted to go into it, whereas I really prefer going in to the ...

danielpi: FYI, you should not use the term "ad hominem" except in the context of fallacious argumentation. It's a pet peeve of mine, but so many people nowadays use "ad hominem" when they really just mean "being mean" or "attacking me personally", but they want to sound fancy. It's not ...
 
   May-03-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
 
danielpi: <Eric><Agreed on the definition of ad hominem, but not on its applicability to your statement. To make my meaning clear I should have said "ad hominem attack on those who assert the idea of community." The point being that rather than engage in a conversation about the ...
