   Nov-10-17 Champions Showdown in Saint Louis (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
denopac: <No. I am not interested in 20th century chess (when the clocks did not allow increments) and artificial suspense (flagging and mega-blunders).> Yeah, really. What's up with that? The web site brags <the games will be faster and more exhilarating for fans to watch>, but ...
   Nov-10-17 Wilhelm Steinitz
denopac: <Born in Germany, he defeated the reining World Chess Champion Adolf Anderssen in 1866> That bio from findagrave can use some fact checking: as pointed out by <Gypsy>, he was born in Prague, and Anderssen was not a World Chess Champion. Plus it misspells "reigning" to ...
   Sep-25-17 J Gustafsson vs Navara, 2006
denopac: GM Jan Gustafsson commented on this game in his Banter Blitz episode 102 (1:15), eleven years later. He said that 8. d4 didn't lead to much in this game, and in the blitz game on the show played 8. Re1 and 9. e4 first instead, so that after the later pawn swap on d4 Black can't swap
   Sep-21-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
denopac: <Didn't somebody here suggest a system where each player writes down an amount of time they would accept as black (like let's say I write down 4 minutes and you write down 2) and whoever writes down the lower number gets black?> This is not a new idea. In the 2010 US ...
   Jan-26-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
denopac: <I like playing with sounds and find it fascinating. U instead of you, ur instead of your, and so on.> With all due respect, I couldn't disagree more strongly.
   Dec-31-16 World Blitz Championship (2016) (replies)
denopac: <Sokrates> Thanks very much, and Happy New Year to you as well.
   Dec-28-16 World Rapid Championship (2016) (replies)
denopac: <I think the classical time limit should be reset to: 40 moves in 60 minutes...> I have to agree that there must be a place for games that last two to three hours (as games do in most other sporting events). Five to six hour games can be difficult to watch (especially if ...
   Dec-26-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
denopac: <Fischer scored great results against the bottom half> Yes, but surprisingly was held to draws by Naranja, Ujtumen, and Jimenez, none of whom ever achieved the grandmaster title.
   Dec-20-16 London Chess Classic (2016) (replies)
denopac: <The world chess championship match that took place was by far the worst ever> This was worse: Anand - Gelfand World Chess Championship (2012)
   Nov-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
denopac: <Magnus adjusted the f2 pawn and he didn't have any intention of moving that piece.> Article 4.3 from The Laws of Chess: ...if the player having the move touches on the chessboard, <with the intention of moving or capturing> one or more of his own pieces, he must move ...
