   Nov-27-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
 
kkdogg: I am a fan of the current system. If we made the champion play in the candidates, it would be conceivable for a champion to go +3 =11 in a round robin, playing near perfect chess, and lose his crown because the bottom of the table played very poorly against the two top competitors.
 
   Aug-28-18 Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
 
kkdogg: "Did Nakamura lose on purpose." This is one reason why using a tournament to decide a World Champion can be problematic. Can you imagine if Nakamura's last round antics gave someone the WC crown outright?
 
   Feb-23-16 H Tikkanen vs K Engstrom, 2014 (replies)
 
kkdogg: I think we can do better than just netting the exchange. 36... f3 37. gxf3 Nf4+ 38. Kxe3 Nxe2 39. Kxe2 Rg2+ 40. K any Rxb2, so black is up a rook
 
   Sep-01-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
 
kkdogg: Earnest question: Why shouldn't Wesley So be here? He had positive results at Tata Steel 2014, Tata Steel 2015, Gashimov 2015, and Dortmund 2015. These are all major tournaments. He claimed some 2700+ scalps (Aronian, Kramnik, Giri, Nepo, Gelfand, Ivanchuk). Why shouldn't he be given
 
   Jul-25-15 Fischer - Spassky (1992) (replies)
 
kkdogg: On Fischer's strength, Kasparov's exact quote was: "Bobby is playing okay, nothing more. Maybe his strength is 2600 or 2650". If we say Fischer's true chess strength was 2650 (perhaps generous, but keep in mind that Kasparov was not one to give Fischer excess credit), that would be ...
 
   Jun-23-15 Norway Chess (2015) (replies)
 
kkdogg: bobthebob, I know you are just having some fun trolling, but when the best player in the world gets a draw with the white pieces against someone rated 70 points beneath him, that's hardly an accomplishment. Whatever, I get it. Carlsen was an asss about those Mickey Mouse comments so ...
 
   Apr-28-15 Kasparov vs Short (Blitz) (2015) (replies)
 
kkdogg: jphamlore, not sure if that response was to me, but if so, I prefaced my comments with "WIthout getting into the merits of Short's comments". I was critiquing devere's (and the common) reasoning that since Nigel Short lost to Judit Polgar in chess, he is wrong about men being ...
 
   Apr-22-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
 
kkdogg: Overgod's response is using "research interests" in a non-academic way. "Research interests" usually imply that you are an active participant in constructing knowledge in that discipline. This requires being on the cutting edge of knowledge in these fields. Few people can do this ...
 
   Oct-05-14 FIDE Grand Prix Baku (2014) (replies)
 
kkdogg: devere, I wouldn't use the word "overrated", but you may be on to something. I looked at Grischuk's record against all the top players and with few exceptions, it's the same story. Grischuk with a slight minus score and a lot of draws. It's not that he "never" wins against these ...
 
   Sep-05-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
 
kkdogg: MarkFinan, I like Nak. He's combative, ambitious, and plays in a unique style. Like many, I wish that Nak was more respectful of other players. And I would tolerate his brashness if he could back it up. When Nak says he's the *only* person who can challenge Carlsen, this is ...
