   Aug-19-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: <tamar> Botvinnik must be seen as a product of his times where he lived in a society, the era of Stalin, where having the right friends, and equally not having the wrong friends, was almost literally a matter of life and death. As his parents were Jewish, this was even more ...
   Aug-17-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: Am I the only one fascinated by Karjakin's approach to rapids and I'm guessing blitz? He plays the exact same small number of openings as he does for classical time games. We can see his switch to the Italian Game over and over now. Also not only Carlsen but Karjakin is playing ...
   Aug-13-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: <devere> I still think Kramnik's loss to Fedoseev at Dortmund will cost Kramnik the ratings spot in Candidates 2018. No one screws over the Russians more when it comes to world championship cycles than their fellow Russians. Just like Kramnik's win over Karjakin in ...
   Jul-22-17 Dortmund (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: <Sokrates: Draw percentage is now 83.33. If all games tomorrow are drawn it'll be staggering 86 %. A record?> The first Petrosian Memorial had 42 draws out of 45 games. Petrosian Memorial (1999) Smyslov's games that event averaged something like 13 moves per game.
   Jun-08-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: I think this tournament with the top 10 players is demonstrating chess at the very top is now a draw.
   Jun-01-17 European Individual Chess Championship (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: Great to see Beliavsky in the hunt for a spot in the next World Cup.
   May-20-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: MVL might join the co-leaders if he converts versus Tomashevsky?
   Apr-29-17 Gashimov Memorial (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: There's the Mamedyarov of old returning at exactly the wrong moment. In an event where he needs to draw out to win ... of course he transposes into what is essentially a Gruenfeld, Russian Variation, against an opponent who attacks the Gruenfeld all the time and who used to be one
   Apr-24-17 Kramnik vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
jphamlore: This kind of sacrifice also reminds me of Kasparov.
   Apr-20-17 GRENKE Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
jphamlore: As I have said before, Carlsen might be the greatest Gruenfeld player as Black on the planet, especially with Nielsen as his trainer, but he so rarely plays it. But he plays it every now and then just to plant a seed of doubt in the minds of future challengers to his title, ...
