gotgat54: <Pulo y Gata: Giri would love the Solomonic solution.> Meet each other halfway? Split the difference? Yes, how very very Giri (otherwise known as He Who Has Half A Mind To Win). I personally think being able to pull that off at this level is admirable.

gotgat54: <devere> You missed this clever variation 21. d6 Bxd6 22. Nxd6 Qxd6 23. Ne4 Qc7 24. Rf5! Ng3+ and now not 25. hxg3 but 25 Nxg3 exf5 26 Qxf6+ Kg8 27 Nh5, and mates. In this variation, if 25 ... Rg8 then 26 Qxf6+ Rg7 27 Rg5 Rg8 28 Rxg7 Rxg7 29 Nh5 )

gotgat54: <MissScarlett> Have you heard of the Chocolate Bar Defense against low blood sugar?

gotgat54: <kellmano: <gotgat54: Presumably if Carlsen had won, it would be 'He's showing his full form to cow and intimidate Anand'.> hmm. That would be a most odd argument - the reason I am winning is to convince my future opponents that I am good.> No odder than the explanation

gotgat54: 'Chess Unplugged'...a good description for a computer-prohibited match. Something like rock bands playing acoustic instruments.

gotgat54: <Absentee> Maybe it rhymed, maybe not. There's been endless debate about this. One theory is that 'eye' could be pronounced 'ee' in Blake's time, at least as archaic usage. Another theory: it wasn't a spoken rhyme at all, but a visual one AKA an 'eye-rhyme'. Then of course ...

gotgat54: <Amadori> Probably good enough for one of Carlsen's inexorable and inevitable grinds towards 1-0. But by no means anything like the smart little brilliancy that was actually played. I'm pretty convinced that after 30...Qg7, white doesn't really have much.

gotgat54: <csmath: Nations have no inferiority complex, people do.> Thank you. That really needed to be said in the midst of all the absurd generalizations flying around. You nailed it.
 
   Nov-19-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
 
gotgat54: Was that not a second too soon?
 
   Nov-09-13 Carlsen vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
gotgat54: Carlsen and Anand had a little chat after the draw was called. Clearly they were discussing the game. A transcript of that would probably be worth far more than their public comments in the press conference. It would be priceless. If there is a lip-reader in the CG ...
