   Jun-21-17 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: Black would have kept near equality with <25...Bxf2+>, reserving the Q for the defense of the a1-h8 diagonal. Taking f2 with the Q drops a pawn and leads to other problems. Very accurate play here by Kramnik. Carlsen did not play poorly.
   Jun-13-17 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: <keypusher: <izimbra: Question of home cooking is interesting. It seems that after <12...Qxa3 13.c5> the position is easy for both sides to draw and White has no objective advantage. However, there may be no good & safe way for black to refuse a draw. Aronian may well ...
   Jun-04-17 Shirov vs Lautier, 1995 (replies)
izimbra: Analyzing with looks like 24.Rc3 was the losing move here. If White plays 24.Rxa8 then he can trade pieces to a drawn endgame. 24.Rc3 allows Ra1 and the Bxh4 capture, leading to a Black win, up a pawn and with better control of open files/diagonals.

izimbra: <ChessHigherCat> I'm making a bet that the true story is different, but also entirely innocent.
   Feb-01-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: So's opening prep has gotten incredibly strong. White is already in some trouble here after <8.O-O-O> even without later mistakes.
   Jan-30-17 Short vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: Black is meant to play <8...Nxc6> in this opening. <8...Nc6> is a poor, probably unintentional novelty.
   Jan-21-17 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: <As has previously been addressed in this thread, <56. Rc8+> would have won quickly, and even after Carlsen missed that win, the position was still winning (with much more difficulty than if he had played the right check at move 56) until he missed <59. Bc4>.> Yes,
   Jan-10-17 Stockfish vs Fire, 2014 (replies)
izimbra: Tournaments can be - and in some sense, usually are - set up to give more incentive to try for wins. In order to take home first prize in a big field, a player usually has to win a bunch. This promotes more risk taking. Also, the selection of participants in London was above average
   Jan-09-17 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: <WorstPlayerEver: It seems White's trouble began at 27. a5> [DIAGRAM] We can guess what went wrong in Carlsen's blitz time control conception. White thinks like this: "Well, it's an even game, but Black has the bishop pair, and Black's DSB is potentially supporting a weak pawn

izimbra: Any unit of exchange/money can be thought of in terms of what one can trade it for at this moment, and in terms of the distribution of future expectations. With something like Bitcoin, there is an unknown risk of the US govt. coming in and shutting it down or some other kind of ...
