devere: Theresa May left speechless after being asked if Trump should negotiate Brexit on her behalf An astonishing scene in the House of Commons.
   Jun-10-18 American Continental (2018) (replies)
devere: Shankland wins in round 11 to finish with a 9-2 score. Since he also defeated Diego Flores in their individual encounter, Shankland will also finish first in the tournament. Congratulations to Samuel Shankland on his latest tournament victory. He is now rated 2727.2 and ranked 27th ...

devere: <Count Wedgemore:> Thanks for the kind words. Wesley So sacrificed a rook on move 40 because he though he saw that 41...Rd3 would work. So it would have been psychologically difficult on move 41 to review his calculations again and see if there was actually a better move to ...
   Jun-07-18 Caruana vs W So, 2018 (replies)
devere: The losing move was 41...Rd3 instead of 41...Rd2 which draws. Wesley So played 41...Rd3 after 4 seconds thought, so it seems that he became disoriented at the end of the first time control. He had a lot of time to think of the correct move, and did not use it.
   May-05-18 Women's World Championship (2018) (replies)
devere: <ex0duz: Isn't Hou Yifan the women's champion? What happened, when did she lose a match to whoever(tannzongyi?!?)> FIDE prefers fake world champions. Remember Khalifman? Neither did I, had to look him up.
   Apr-29-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
devere: Fantastic performance by the 2018 US Chess Champion Samuel Shankland. +6 is an astonishing score. His tournament performance rating was 2885.
   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.
