devere: "POLL: Most Voters Want Confederate Statues To Remain" American leftists destroying Confederate statues remind me of the Afghan Taliban destroying Buddhist statues and carvings. In both cases their feelings were hurt and they chose to respond ...
   Aug-14-17 Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
devere: You know what happened when Lasker came back in New York in 1924. Lasker was then a year older than Garry is now, so no excuses for the beast of Baku. It's time to show everyone who is still boss.
   Aug-13-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
devere: So, Kramnik, Caruana, & MVL are all committed to playing World Cup and the Isle of Man open (unless they are in the World Cup finals). This year with Magnus or Karjakin possibly in the finals, there may also be a playoff for 3rd place in the World cup for candidates tournament ...
   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
devere: A sloppy finish to the game. An illustration of why I greatly prefer increment to delay. Who really wants to see the best players in the world make time-pressure mistakes?

devere: <maxi: how is it possible for somebody to have such high blood pressures.> Even today it is sometimes a mystery. What has changed from the 1930s is that available treatments are now much more effective, so people live longer.
   Aug-10-17 Karjakin vs W So, 2017 (replies)
devere: <maxi: As <devere> writes, Karjakin missed the immediate win with 52.c7 Rc2 53.Nd7. The threat is 54.Nf8+ winning the e-pawn and defending the advanced c-pawn, so So would have to resign.> I think the most amusing line is 52.c7 Rc2 53.Nd7 Kg6 54.Kd3 Rc1 55.Kd2 and the ...
   Aug-09-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
devere: MVL will probably regret wasting that home prep on perhaps the best defensive player in the world. Could anyone else but Karjakin have figured it out over the board? Possibly not.
   Aug-08-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
devere: Looks like 43.g5 instead of 43.h5 was a mistake that gave away the win.
   Aug-08-17 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
devere: <ajile: 21.Qe3 = bleh> 21.Qe3 looks OK, but after Bxh4 22.Rxh4 Qe7 White should have tried 23.Qg3 instead of 23.Rxg4
   Aug-08-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
devere: <Nf8: <An Englishman> I don't see in what way you think Carlsen did err - what should he have played instead of 45...c4, so that White would need a "miracle"? 45...Rc6 46.Rb6 and Black hasn't made any progress.> I agree. Anand defended well and it was just a draw.
