jamesmaskell: chess24 engine going nuts over Rxd5 for White
   Mar-27-16 Caruana vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: For those not watching the live video, Caruana and Svidler are still at the board and have set up a previous position from the middlegame!

jamesmaskell: <chesslearner1991> As good as Carlsen might be, I don't think he's going to win this tournament ;)
   Mar-25-16 Caruana vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: Official video showing 31:28 to Karjakin and just under 26: to Topalov.
   Mar-25-16 Nakamura vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: <lorker> Admittedly I did see a comp eval, but the position does look butt ugly for Black. Yes it has the h-pawn push but it is far too slow and needs the Rook to pretty much stand still. The QS Rook still isnt developed and the mate threats are clear. A comp eval of 5.13
   Mar-23-16 Caruana vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: That knight tour is exactly the sort of thing I would do. Just go nuts chasing pawns, causing trouble. Wouldnt be close to correct chess but the plan would be disruption. Which rather explains why Im on the keyboard here while Anand is at the board...
   Mar-19-16 Svidler vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: Really hoping Svidler can do it. Black has great activity though.
   Mar-19-16 Svidler vs Morozevich, 2001
jamesmaskell: Played in the last round of the 4NCL season for Beeson. Svidler left immediately for the Russian Team Championships. Going through TWIC, it appears it was his first classical game of the year, this was in May! Bit of rust perhaps?
   Mar-17-16 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: <Mudphudder> Dont think Aronian was annoyed. He pressed the claim almost immediately, and looked like he sympathised a bit, though he was absolutely in the right to get the arbiter to insist.
   Mar-16-16 Topalov vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
jamesmaskell: <Marmot> I hope Topalov can keep it together vis-a-vis his style, but his morale must've taken a hit with some self-doubt. Must be hard for him to judge at the critical moments knowing he would normally like to go for it but knowing that its all on the line and with those
