devere: Black hero disarms crazed White gunman
   Apr-21-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
devere: Carlsen is now just 15.2 rating points ahead of Caruana. Another 6 draws at the Gashimov memorial and Carlsen's #1 rating may be gone.
   Apr-12-18 Potkin vs D Brandenburg, 2008 (replies)
devere: 37.Nf5+ Kg8 38.Qxe5 is certainly good enough to win, so there is little reason to play the slightly better and much more complicated 37.Qxe5+
   Apr-09-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
devere: <AylerKupp: Sonnenborn-Berger score typically favors the lower-rated player> While I sometimes don't agree with you, this is one of those unusual occasions when you are totally mistaken. S-B, which some say should be called Neustadtl, has nothing to do with rating, and only ...
   Apr-09-18 Vitiugov vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
devere: I suppose that if Caruana wouldn't give Grischuk a draw in Berlin, he probably also won't give Vitiugov one at Baden Baden.
   Apr-04-18 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2018 (replies)
devere: 34...Qd7 35. Qe5 Qc6+ 36. Kg1 Qg6 was needed to hold equality, and that wasn't at all easy to see. 34...Qd3 35.Qe5 would have been even worse than 34...Qxa4. This is the sort of game Carlsen often wins; making something out of nothing in the endgame. It is an impressive win for ...
   Apr-04-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
devere: <this one was my favorite game from this match> It wasn't a match, since Google controlled both "contestants" and manipulated them to obtain the desired result.
   Mar-31-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
devere: Carlsen missed the win with 54...Rh7! It was a narrow escape for Fab.
   Mar-29-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
devere: < Pedro Fernandez:> Your memory is playing tricks on you. I didn't play against Akobian. I did play against Simon Williams and 26...Na5 was a key move in the game, after which Williams resigned 7 moves later.
   Mar-27-18 Grischuk vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
devere: Now Fab should offer Grischuk a draw. Fab doesn't need the rating points. He has already qualified for the 2020 candidates tournament!
