   Nov-21-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
jnpope: 18.Bc4 is interesting, but I think Anand has to go with 18.Qxb2
   Nov-20-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
jnpope: I'm still intrigued by the idea of making each day consist of a possible "set" of games to decide the full point. Maybe something like: Classical game ends in a draw? Small intermission, set up the board, alternate colors play a 3-game Action match (5-minute intermission and reverse ...
   Nov-17-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
jnpope: As for format changes, maybe instead of speeding things up if the Classical match is tied, perhaps we should take a quasi-page from tennis, i.e. games, sets and match. Play on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Have the players _fight_ for each daily-point. The first game of each day is a ...

   Nov-13-14 Lasker vs L L Labatt, 1893 (replies)
jnpope: More likely from the simul on February 21, 1893. <Herr Emanuel Lasker played sixteen of the best players of the Chess, Checker and Whist Club last night. The game began at 8 o'clock, Mr. Lasker opening with the queen pawn on the boards of all the players, and lasted until 20 ...
