   Nov-18-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
karban: Well, out of 8 games Anand was seriously pushing in two of them (No. 3&5) whereas Carlsen was doing so in at least four (1,2,6,7). They both have been converting with 50% efficiency so the result is 2-1. In previous match Anand has serious chances also in two games (3&9). Overall, it
 
   Nov-15-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
karban: The same happened to Carlsen&Aronian not so long ago: Carlsen vs Aronian, 2012 It was also Magnus's blunder and Levon's counterblunder. If I'm not mistaken Aronian was under time pressure and afterwards he said he wanted 'to play fast, generally' so he had to 'trust' his opponent. ...
 
   Oct-28-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
karban: <How can you be the world's greatest player if you've only been world champion for one year? Max U was champion for one year. Magnus even ducked Anand, three years ago, when MC wasn't quite confident enough to take on the champ.> Capablanca's reign was also a short one but he's

karban: < Doesn't 34.) Bxc6 simply win a pawn for white?> 34. ... Rc8 and black wins.
 
   May-10-14 Timman vs Karpov, 1979 (replies)
 
karban: When I saw the puzzle and caliber of the players this game immediately crossed my mind: R Byrne vs Fischer, 1963 . I was trying sacrifices on e3 like in that game. Incorrect, but pattern recognition worked out for me.
 
   Nov-25-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
 
karban: The prize giving was absolutely dreadful:) No speeches what was already disrespectful to both players and fans. Kirsan looked stressful, players also seemed not know what is going on. Guy with gunmachine on the stage looked really serious. Long way to go...
 
   Nov-20-13 Steinitz vs Pillsbury / Barry / Nelson / Snow, 1892 (replies)
 
karban: So King's Gambit doesn't have to be always accepted:) Is this a suggestion what is going to happen in the tomorrow Big Game?
 
   Aug-11-13 World Cup (2013) (replies)
 
karban: Looks like Adgestein has just dropped a pawn against Bacrot.
 
   Mar-11-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
