   Oct-08-17 Isle of Man Open (2017) (replies)
devere: <Sally Simpson: Carlsen could have got in on rating in 2014 and 2016 , he did not nor was any attempt made to question why not.> Carlsen was not qualified in 2014 & 2016 because he played in neither the Grand Prix or World Cup. If you want to resume your continual ...

devere: Is Any Part Of The Russia Election Hacking Story True? Evidently not.
   Oct-01-17 Yifan Hou (replies)
devere: <Sally Simpson: Well done Yifan on wrapping up the ladies prize with one round to spare. Can't help thinking that the stance should now be to decline it. It's an outdated and condescending hand out from a previous age.> If she can somehow beat Anand with the Black pieces Hou ...
   Sep-30-17 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
devere: I seem to recall that it was Botvinnik who remarked that the worst mistake a chess player can make is to overestimate the opponent. I believe that we saw that mistake made by Caruana in this game.
   Sep-27-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
devere: <Sokrates: <k009ris: Boring ,whatever . Blunder filled fast games decide the champ.This knockout mini -matches format creates maybe tense but overall disappointing games.> Such a wonderful, positive approach to this event and its players.> It may not be wonderful and ...
   Sep-20-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
devere: <OhioChessFan: Anyone who can explain the repeated zugzwang issues for Black in the Stockfish line will get my vote for Kibitz of the year. Among other things, the Kd7/e7 dance is mystifying.> Nb4 threatens Nc6 followed by inevitable checkmate by Rd8. Black plays Kd7-e7 to ...
   Sep-15-17 Aronian vs Ivanchuk, 2017 (replies)
devere: <extremepleasure2> Your theory is lacking any plausible motive. Are large sums of money bet on each world cup chess game? If so, where? If the motive is Armenian national pride, why not try to fix the 2016 candidates tournament?
   Sep-13-17 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
devere: <Arconax: <devere> But Carlsen has already won three WCC matches, that's two more than Fischer. That should count for something in your analysis.> <ughaibu: It's two more than Capablanca as well.> I didn't say that Capablanca, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Fischer, Karpov, ...
   Sep-10-17 Salov vs Korchnoi, 1997 (replies)
devere: 45.Rxf5 Rg1+ 46.Kh2 e2 47.Kxg1 e1=Q+ 48.Kg2 and White has a fortress. But there are still some fatal mistakes that White could make, so Black will play on for quite a while.
