   Mar-21-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
karban: So, it's only Karjakin who would have a favourable first tie-break against Anand (head-to-head) providing of course, that he would at least draw him in round 11. Everyone else seems to have, at the moment, negative first or second (number of wins) tie-break to him. That means that he
   Dec-14-15 London Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
karban: <Normally MVL would be the last player to botch it. But people need to realize it was his FIFTH game of the day.> Well, he could have avoided tiebreaks if only he scored half points more than Carlsen and Giri... I know it sounds sadistic but this is a reality of a modern sport.
   Aug-30-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
karban: Can anybody compute a virtual standing of the Grand Chess Tour after round 6 of the Sinquefield Cup?

karban: Congrats to Aleksandra for her maiden victory in the national championship!

karban: Regarding time control I can understand they want to speed up the game, however taking more time from an already time-deprived 60+ move phase of the game is ridiculous. Back in the days games were adjourned and now only 15 min is left to finish the game. They should speed up an ...

karban: Congratulations for becoming World no.1 in all three formats of chess! Plus, triple crown as well.
   Jan-19-15 Jobava vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
karban: Last move of the game was 50...Kf5, Jobava had thought for about two minutes and only after his resignation the piece was placed on an adjacent black square. I don't know why it is so difficult to find a solution to this common transsmission error occurring at the end of the games.

karban: Nice pun
   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. ...
