   Sep-17-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
drnooo: What a pack of nonsense, all this babble about world champions. You don't decide that after ten games and some rapids. That's insanity, not chess. In a twenty game match...if drawn..what's wrong with simply saying, no champion. Period. Or if they are serious and both want to, let ...
   Sep-10-17 Paul Keres (replies)
drnooo: these two fine posters, very knowledgeable as they are...and they are...oddly enough miss the point, as most of the best do about Keres. I've posted this before. KERES WOULD HAVE LEFT AND NEVER COME BACK, ESCAPED TO THE EAST AND THEN.....PROBABLY CHANGED CHESS HISTORY FOREVER. It is ...
   Mar-02-17 Robert James Fischer (replies)
drnooo: The central fact for me has always been that Fischer, plain and simple did NOT want to play Karpov. Period. Had Karpov given in to the last demand, then Fischer would have come up with something else to avoid a very long and drawn out struggle. He knew that Karpov was ripe and ready ...
   Feb-20-17 Mikhail Tal (replies)
drnooo: There is a picture on the Net in a slew of Tal photos which is NOT he. It is of Stanley Kubrick. Nobody has ever taken it down and corrected it, continues to float around after likely 10 years, showing you how little people really notice things.
   Nov-29-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
drnooo: Whatever happens, finally this system has turned the championship into a joke.We are about to have a naked emperor running around claiming he's lady Godiva in a bikini.
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
drnooo: This is polite chess at its most polite. Such respect has seldom been expressed so eloquently by both opponents.
   Mar-27-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
drnooo: here's a very simple solution for sidestepping FIDE. Let's say the guy in St Louis would go for it. After this championship, starting the day after, he sets up a qualifying tourney. Let's make it the top 15. seems fair. Purse is 2 million. which he is going to get some of it back in ...
   Mar-24-16 Anand vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
drnooo: too bad for da Russian, 36 f 5 seems to hold fairly easily, you're almost by force stuck with taking and then if rook trades its a painless draw,
   Nov-18-15 European Team Championship (2015) (replies)
drnooo: and while we're at it, having played in Las Vegas for a few years, and known how easy it is to hide a computer in your shoes without, that is, the watchful methods of the casinos, it's pretty amazing that big tournaments don't check the shoes: it's fairly simple to have a code tapped
   Nov-05-15 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
drnooo: as usual, most of the facts get lost in the result. Few realize just how close England nearly won the war early on: Washington without the fog in New York would not have slipped away and the whole force wiped out in the first days and that would have been it. Over and out. Not much ...
