kappertjes: <Shams: A few old white men are clutching their pearls. The world still turns. > I love how the <old white men> bit is thrown in to devalue any feelings or grievances these people might have. Which don't you like Shams, old people, white people or men? Or is it the ...
   Feb-05-17 Tradewise Gibraltar (2017) (replies)
kappertjes: Wow, doesn't this <Richard> come across as the douchiest douche ever.
   Oct-31-16 Ian Nepomniachtchi (replies)
kappertjes: I don't like the Wimbledon comparison mainly because I don't care for tennis and would rate Wijk higher than Wimbledon. <with a complete database, including all games and information about every player who has participated at Beverwijk and Wijk aan Zee in the past eight ...
   Sep-12-16 Carlsen vs E Ghaem Maghami, 2016 (replies)
kappertjes: <keypusher> Thanks, that was really good. There does seem to be a similar theme. Apparently there is "discussion" about exactly this type of exchange. Is the knight on its lovely square worth more than the bishop hitting its pawns, or not? You live you learn, I guess I ...
   Sep-06-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
kappertjes: <1688 was just a little english war of succession in which a dutch pretender, protestant, was preferred over a french pretender, catholic. Do you notice how successful domestic spats are glorious revolutions, but failed ones are civil wars?> Nonsense, the whole glorious ...
   Jun-12-16 Grand Chess Tour Paris Rapid (2016) (replies)
kappertjes: <Now 2896 elo vs. 2930 elo a gap of 1.1%> I don't care about this argument you guys are having, but talking about elo-differences in terms of percentages of the actual rating is very... creative.
   May-07-16 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
kappertjes: My impression was rather that this game shows Svidler playing really well. He outplayed Karjakin with black in an intricate middlegame to get an (imo very) difficult endgame, which he converted for a deserved win. An illustration of how and why Svidler is a 7-time chesschamp of ...
   Mar-26-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
kappertjes: Of all the prep of this tourney, including Naka's winning piece, Svidler's choice of the slav with c6 and e6 as black (Soultanbeieff Variation apparently) must rank as one of the best choices.
   Mar-11-16 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
kappertjes: Well I for one can't even follow the games on the official site, so I guess I will just have to look at some highlights after the tournament. I had even organised a friday afternoon off, luckily the sun in shining so this could be good for my health.
   Jan-29-16 Carlsen vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
kappertjes: <Of course there's no way for White to make progress with the queens on unless someone makes a mistake. But lots can happen with queens, as any chess player knows. Suppose Hou had kept the queens on and gone on to lose. What would people say then?> True, and personally I ...
