   Nov-15-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
 
jair: Not only 0-1, but Anands miss could be the most significant in title matches since Capablanca's 38 Kf2? instead of 38 ke2 in game 27. I'm sure Anand will be aware of this. Here's hoping that this will bring out the best in them for the second half. Caruana and co. can earn their own ...
 
   Jun-21-14 World Blitz Championship (2014) (replies)
 
jair: <DeepTrouble: For those who're interested in re-listening to Komarov's live comments: His comments from all 21 rounds can be found here: http://dubai2014wrb.com/en/movie/ > Komarov's comedy performance is out of this world. Pure genius. Reads the game pretty, pretty good too.

jair: I can't even watch the Aronian / Karjakin game, poor Lev.
 
   Nov-24-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
 
jair: Despite Carlsen's efforts, the gap between man and machine is growing. Knight odds probably require 500+ Elo difference. You could disable the opening and endings books but the games up. Adams v Hydra 2005 was almost a massacre. The real question is how much future generations will ...
 
   Sep-14-13 Ushenina - Hou Women's World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
 
jair: <Nerwal:it's smarter to try to find a battleground where the gap will not be as big and work from there, even if this type of play is not necessarily your cup of tea...> True, and not just in Chess!
 
   Apr-21-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
 
jair: <SetNoEscapeOn> No question, a fully focused Anand is the most dangerous player in the post-Kasparov era. Ask Kramnik. The doubts are only of his motivation, not of his abilities. The question of how to get the best out of oneself is always a personal one and one that is almost ...
 
   May-28-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
 
jair: Hmm...still no decision. Well, one things clear, and it hurts to say it but those guys who called Vishy Drawanand were right. He has even surpassed Drawnik and Drawfand! Still 2 games got away, maybe next time he can draw all 12. This match was pointless they may as well share the ...
 
   May-26-12 Gelfand vs Anand, 2012 (replies)
 
jair: Chess can be popular with the public but you need a world champion like Morphy, Capablanca, or Fischer. This sort of chess is not going to win any new fans. It's an embarrassment to show this to non-chessfans. Hopefully the new chess organisation will make this sort of (middle-aged) ...
 
   Sep-04-11 World Cup (2011) (replies)
 
jair: The HD feed at http://worldcup2011.live.whychess.o... great. It's much better than actually being in the coliseum watching all the pain and suffering.
 
   May-25-11 World Championship Candidates Final (2011) (replies)
 
jair: After 5 draws Grischuk abandoned his safety first strategy. Wish he'd done it earlier, like game 1. Couldn't resist the gamble I guess. Oh well ! You win some... Gelfand could be the new Kramnik.
