   Mar-08-15 European Individual Championship (2015) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Duc Hoa Nguyen won a double norm at the 2014 Olympiad, and Kenneth T Solomon won one at the 2012 Olympiad. Not sure if they're the most recent or not.

kevinatcausa: An alternative way of looking at it: For us to have the same color, we have to flip different ranks up. There's a 2/3 chance that happens. Once we know that you're flipping a different rank, it's 50/50 we have the same color (e.g. if I flip up an ace and you flip up a queen, ...

kevinatcausa: <HeMateMe:> I haven't read it yet, but I really enjoyed his previous "The Ball is Round". That one was as much a history book as a Football/Soccer one. Packed with detail and a lot of interesting stories, albeit with a tendency for *too much* detail at times -- easy to ...
 
   Nov-17-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: <HeMateMe:> Several players have won a Rook+Knight vs. Rook endgame when their GM-level opponent made a mistake in defense. See Carlsen vs E L'Ami, 2011 , Onischuk vs L Dominguez, 2008 , Judit Polgar vs Kasparov, 1996 It's not an automatic mindless draw they were playing ...
 
   Nov-12-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: In an attempt to get Anand out of his opening prep, Carlsen will open 1. f4. A little Bird told me.
 
   Nov-02-14 FIDE Grand Prix Tashkent (2014) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Interesting that all of Andreikin's wins came against people with positive records.
 
   Oct-19-14 World Junior Championship (2014) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: I believe Lu would have won on tiebreaks even with a draw in his last game. He was +1 against the 9.5 pointers.
 
   Sep-12-14 GRENKE Chess Classic (2014) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Naiditsch doesn't even need a draw. If first tiebreak is number of wins, he's already locked first place up.
 
   Sep-05-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Just another boring, ho-hum, all draws day :)
 
   Sep-05-14 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Looks like the sort of position that's either a draw (if I'm white) or a white win(if I'm black). I just have no good intuition for rook endings.
