   Jan-30-19 Ribli vs Adorjan, 1983 (replies)
karban: To find Bf1 is pleasant in the actual position but what about seeing it 2 or more moves ahead during the game? That must be have been a feeling!
   Aug-28-18 Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
karban: There's no play-off in the rules - people (players including) complain. We have a one - same story. There's no ideal solution, and the one proposed in this tournament is a bit weird as a drawing should be used as a last ditch solution, but rules are rules. The fact that players can ...
   Mar-26-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
karban: I think Karjakin has roughly equal chances like Caruana. Half point less, true, but firstly he has a better tie-break than Caru, secondly he has white, and last but not least, both Caru and Mamyed play with black with the remaining Russians. I guess that Kramnik and Grischuk will ...
   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.

karban: Can anybody compute a virtual standing of the Grand Chess Tour after round 6 of the Sinquefield Cup?
   Aug-20-15 Russian Championship Superfinal (Women) (2015) (replies)
karban: Congrats to Aleksandra for her maiden victory in the national championship!
   Jun-17-15 Norway Chess (2015) (replies)
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 ...
   Feb-19-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
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.
