It’s been a long time

   Dec-08-18 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
fabelhaft: <Kramnik 2777 He has the right style, and the knowledge, to be a challenger once again in the future, but not this time...> He will be 45 in 2020, I wonder if cycles after that won’t be too late for him, he had to rely on the wild card to get a spot in the Candidates the ...
   Dec-06-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
fabelhaft: It's more fun with lots of wins, but it's a title match every second year, consisting of 12 games. The tension is extreme, and in every game the prep battle is exciting in itself. There were missed wins and lots of nervous moments, and it was between the two best players in the ...
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
fabelhaft: <The stats show that in Carlsen's four title matches, he has only lost twice in 45 games!> One being when he walked into a prepared line against Anand that got a winning position ”at home” and the other when he overpressed against Karjakin. As comparison Kramnik lost 8 in 52

fabelhaft: <he just doesn't care to even try> He could have fooled me
   Nov-17-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
fabelhaft: <Unfortunately, I'm starting to be convinced that this has been Carlsen's plan all along—draw-fest through 12 rounds of classical chess> You keep repeating this, but Carlsen did play very aggressively with black in the first game and missed several wins. <I wonder what ...
   Nov-13-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
fabelhaft: <why would Carlsen want to to anything but play for draws throughout all 12 rounds> <I certainly wouldn't put it past him to do so. Disappointing, actually...> Did you think he played for a draw in the first game?
   Oct-26-18 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
fabelhaft: <He said that he didn't have a chance against him in the early 70's but maybe could get to him in the second match> Or, rather, he said that he thought his chances of winning the first match were 40%, which isn't all that low.
   Oct-23-18 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
fabelhaft: Some Twitter quotes by Tarjei Svensen from the Norwegian podcast Sjakksnakk: @TarjeiJS: We're at the end of the podcast. Carlsen asked who his favourite player is (he was told not to say himself), which is Alexander Alekhine. @TarjeiJS: Carlsen on Alekhine: "He played a type of ...
   Oct-13-18 Linares (2001)
fabelhaft: Well, Karpov still played quite a lot back then, and was ranked 4th of the six participants. Now the 20 years older Korchnoi did also face Grischuk and some other top players the same year in Biel with a not less respectable result: Biel (2001)
   Oct-09-18 Frederick Rhine (replies)
fabelhaft: I don't see Ivanchuk as a serious contender for greatest player never to be World Champion. Korchnoi's result were different level for a very long time. He didn't just win the whole candidates series a couple of times, but was an inch from winning a title match against Karpov. He ...
