Member since Sep-03-07
I'm a little frog who thinks dilbert is cool. I particularly like the dog.

- On the internet, everybody knows I'm a frog

Please use my player pages for any general chess topic, whether it's about games, ratings or great chess players. Feel free to dissect the few examples of my own amateurish attempts at the board too, of course. :o)

PS! Remember to check out the ultimate shark slayer champions ranking, too: Magnus Carlsen (kibitz #57936)

- Serious sportsmen within the field of mental arts should not leave the transmission of electrical impulses in the brain to chance (Hans Arild Runde (kibitz #5452))

   Aug-18-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
frogbert: After the first leg the blitz event has 12 wins for white and 15 wins for black. In the rapid event there were 15 wins for white and 11 wins for black.

frogbert: <jambow> I happen to think Hikaru is quite the likeable guy. :) I've met him on several occasions; we've been out having drinks together here in Oslo, and during Norway Chess 2013 when I was covering the event for Norwegian paper VG, Hikaru even gave me a ride (to a distant ...

frogbert: <Carlsen should have 24 points, but for some reason, the official site has 25.> You get 13 points for an outright win in the GCT, <Tabanus>. In Paris Carlsen finished shared first and went on to win the tie-breaks. Hence, he "only" got 12 points for that win.
 
   Jun-24-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
frogbert: Carlsen scored 0,5 points from winning positions in his two latest games. Against Grischuk he first blundered the win and then flagged when the position was a draw. In the Karjakin game he missed the nice winning move Ke6 and allowed black to save the draw. I can't imagine he's ...
 
   Jun-16-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
 
frogbert: <visayanbraindoctor> Our latest posts aren't really in any big disagreement, I think. I know we've been over this numerous times before, but here's my point of view: there really is no objective way to tell whether the fact that there were only 2-3 guys at any point in time ...
 
   Dec-30-16 World Blitz Championship (2016) (replies)
 
frogbert: The real difference is consistency, obviously. Grischuk and Ivanchuk trail Carlsen by as many points today as Karjakin did in the rapids.
 
   Dec-28-16 World Rapid Championship (2016) (replies)
 
frogbert: Hm. David Anton Guijarro was at 4 out of 9. Then he finished with 6 straight wins to reach 10 out of 15, beating a number of strong players on the final day. I've never heard about Guijarro before.
 
   Dec-26-16 London Chess Classic (2016) (replies)
 
frogbert: There has been notable <systemic> rating inflation, but much less than people using flawed methods have reported (reports that have been endlessly repeated by people who follow leaders instead of watching their parkin' meters). Merry Christmas!
 
   Dec-26-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
frogbert: Oh! There was a world championship again? Who's the new world champion? Still this Carlsen guy? Oh well, nothing new under the sun then, I suppose.
 
   Sep-30-16 Tal Memorial (2016) (replies)
 
frogbert: Oh well, it's already hypothetical. Svidler goes down.
