dx9293: <notyetagm> Yes, by winning the FWWC title, Tan automatically becomes a GM (Ushenina also gained her GM title this way). Automatic GM: -Women's World Champion -World Junior Champion -World Senior Champion -Reaching last 16 of World Cup Had Tan lost in the final match, ...
 
   Nov-22-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
dx9293: I never root for Carlsen, but he was always a clear favorite in this match. When asked, I often said 65-35. A 35% chance is much higher than zero. So it's not a shock that Karjakin is now leading. At least it shouldn't be. I expected someone to eventually overcome Carlsen with ...
 
   Sep-12-16 Yurkov vs Salov, 1979 (replies)
 
dx9293: The year could very well be correct: Yurkov, the famous coach (Balashov, A. Sokolov, Morozevich) winning against the up-and-coming superstar Salov (who would be 14 or 15 here).
 
   Sep-02-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
 
dx9293: There are a lot of great players who throughout history have played the Olympiad. Most of them do what they're expected, though some do succumb to the pressure. But then there are others like Sam Shankland (Gabriel Sargissian, for example, could also fit into this category) who while
 
   Sep-02-16 World Junior Championship (2016) (replies)
 
dx9293: <diagonal> The late IM Mark Diesen (World Junior Champion in 1976) also did not achieve the GM title. In those days the winner of the tournament got an automatic IM title only. From 1993 all winners of the Open section receive the GM title (and all winners of the Girls section ...

dx9293: <SF> He already gets tutoring from Kasparov through GK's Young Stars Program...
 
   Jun-15-16 Capablanca Memorial (Elite) (2016) (replies)
 
dx9293: <PawnSac> Ivanchuk has been a top player for over 25 years. He probably doesn't need the money anymore. Same as someone like Polgar (retired) or Kamsky (nearly retired).
 
   Sep-20-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
 
dx9293: <Rolfo> Yes, that was Komarov!
 
   Sep-18-15 Levon Aronian (replies)
 
dx9293: <swordfish> No it isn't. Aronian is a choke artist when it comes to World Championship competitions. It's interesting that some months ago Ivan Sokolov said in a ChessBase interview that he thinks Aronian is past his best. I was surprised to read this at the time, but it may be
 
   Aug-20-15 Aleksandra Goryachkina (replies)
 
dx9293: I'm not sure Goryachkina gets a GM norm, because I believe a player needs to play at least one-third GMs (which would be 4 for a tournament 10-12 rounds). The only GMs were Gunina, Kosteniuk, and Lahno. I hope I'm wrong.
