   detritus has kibitzed 107 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-12-16 Yifan Hou (replies)
detritus: Hou isn't listed among the participants in Batumi for the third leg of the Women's 2015-16 Grand Prix: I guess she's dropping out of the women's championship cycle, perhaps never to return.
   Mar-16-16 Women's World Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
detritus: Hou is taking part in the Norway Chess qualification tournament at the end of the month. If she qualifies (over Hammer, Grandelius, and Tari), then Norway Chess takes place from 16th to 29th of April. That overlaps with the present April 20-May 4 schedule of the third leg of the ...
   Jan-29-16 Tradewise Gibraltar (2016) (replies)
detritus: Lucky for Nakamura that he's drawn Mariya Muzychuk in Round 5, who will no doubt be hiding her own prep. :-) Kind of hoping for a Tromp or Dutch Defense in that game.
   Jan-26-16 Aleksandra Goryachkina
detritus: Ju-u-u-u-ust missed a Goryachkina-Nakamura Round 2 pairing at Tradewise Gibraltar.
   Jan-18-16 Tata Steel (Group B) (2016) (replies)
detritus: Admiraal's lucky even to have a half point. Safarli gifted him with a draw today in an ending that someone in the mid-2600s should really be able to close out in their sleep.
   Jan-04-16 Maxim Rodshtein (replies)
detritus: Rodshtein just hit 2700.0 in the live ratings with a win over Alexander Donchenko in Round 8 of the Rilton Cup in Sweden. He's sitting on 7/8, a half-point ahead of Jon Ludvig Hammer, who crested 2700 a few rounds earlier in the same tournament.
   Dec-23-15 Kosteniuk vs M Matlakov, 2015
detritus: Heh, the engine eval went from +0.55 to -0.46 after White's 26th, so its verdict is a straight-up giveaway of a pawn with no compensation.
   Dec-04-15 Mariya Muzychuk (replies)
detritus: s00p3r-s33kr1t chess games!
   Nov-24-15 European Team Championship (Women) (2015) (replies)
detritus: *facepalm* That would be a great point if she were playing Koneru for the title in March, but she's not. She's playing Hou, who has indeed thrashed Muzychuk twice with the Black pieces with the Sicilian:
   Nov-20-15 M Muzychuk vs Kosteniuk, 2015
detritus: A rare 1. d4 game from Mariya, with the looming title match vs. Hou Yifan 3 1/2 months away. Muzychuk is getting pretty fantastic results against anyone besides Hou (and Mickey Adams, I guess). It seems likely her current Elo rating (2551.1 after this game) underestimates her true ...
