   Oct-26-18 Robert James Fischer (replies)
drnooo: A greater player AND chess talent likely was the most forgotten. Harry Nelson Pillsbury. Considering that he basically played the game as a hobby compared to Fischer's obsession, and what he did in tournaments, eclipses anyone in the history of chess. Had he not been so persistently ...
   Aug-29-18 Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
drnooo: The great players never had much trouble in draws. Notice all the greats were at the 65 percent level and the truly greats were in the 70 per cents. Capa, Alekhine, Fisher, Keres 70 percenters.
   Apr-15-18 Najdorf vs Gliksberg, 1929 (replies)
drnooo: I seem to be one of the few here who always looks first at the percentage wins as the best gauge of playing strength. The immortals and near greats are without exception in the 65 percent and above. Its the truest test of how he played against the field during his career. Najdorf ...
   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 ...
   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,
