   Apr-24-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
jphamlore: If I am reading the championship's web site correctly, at least Shankland can play his way into World Cup 2019. To show how horribly broken the United States chess establishment is at actually producing results, neither Shankland nor Robson even made World Cup 2017. The young guy ...
   Apr-21-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
jphamlore: I still can't believe there were so many decisive results in Candidates 2018. The first 3 rounds of this event to me should be the norm, because with decent preparation, almost all games should be drawn given the defensive abilities of these super GMs.
   Apr-12-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
jphamlore: Steinitz vs Tarrasch. Had Tarrasch been able to win the world championship, his Die moderne Schachpartie might have been translated into English. Then his critics writing in English would not have had the last, and only, word on Tarrasch's teachings, which would have considerably ...
   Apr-07-18 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
jphamlore: <LameJokes55: weakness on q-side. Weakness on k-side. White's position looks horrible.> To me it is White's Queen that is absolutely horrible. White at the moment is almost playing a Queen down. He has played well to avoid more damage up to this point.
   Apr-05-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
jphamlore: <Mateo: 12.c3 is not an obvious move, at least for me.> I think 12.c3 is a bid by Anand to give Caruana options to keep the Queens on the board.
   Mar-31-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
jphamlore: We can't compare players today with players from the past, because in the past the game would have been adjourned after move 41. The players and their seconds would have had all night to analyze this. Who knows, White back then might have resigned before the game even resumed.
   Mar-31-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
jphamlore: There is good news and bad news from a post-victory interview given by Caruana. The good news is that we now know that all the players at Candidates are without a shadow of a doubt scrupulously honest people who would never cheat. The bad news is we know this because according to ...
   Mar-26-18 Caruana vs Aronian, 2018 (replies)
jphamlore: <Chess for life: What's the deal with 9.Bd2??!> Something has to be done about Black's possible Na5? 9. Bd2 stopped Na5 and thus c5, which is part of why the current position exists on the board.
   Mar-24-18 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
jphamlore: There is possibly an idea for Caruana to exchange Queens by putting the Queen on c6 and breaking open the diagonal to f3 by using the d4 push.
