   Jun-12-18 Your Next Move (Rapid) (2018) (replies)
messachess: Found it: 9 rounds of rapid chess (25 minutes with a 10-second delay) are played on the first 3 days, with wins worth 2 points. 18 rounds of blitz (5 minutes with a 3-second delay) follow on the final 2 days, with wins worth 1 point.
   Jun-12-18 M Efroimski vs T Munkhchuluun, 2008 (replies)
messachess: Difficult for being 'easy.' I got the exchange, but not the pawn play.
   Jun-09-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
messachess: Q sac. is easy. The rest is a scramble.
   Jun-04-18 Altibox Norway (2018) (replies)
messachess: Could we be entering another Kasparov-Karpov--like era with Wesley So taking on the Kasparov role of dynamically attacking play with Carlsen being like Karpov: extremely difficult to beat but with all the dynamism of a dead fish?
   Jun-03-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
messachess: Wesley the Magnus-killer
   May-27-18 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 1994 (replies)
messachess: Difficult. Gata found it all back in the days of his run for the wc.
   May-26-18 J Jackson vs G Jones, 2016 (replies)
messachess: Pretty easy if you see the Q check. (I didn't.)
   May-13-18 S Cao vs V M Golod, 2001 (replies)
messachess: Yes, that is difficult. I think that was a speculative sacrifice. It worked out
   May-11-18 B Hayden vs W A Winser, 1948 (replies)
messachess: I didn't envision the last position (the rook!) As pointed out here already, exchanging queens looks better for black.
   May-10-18 V K Neverov vs M Debarshi, 2017 (replies)
messachess: Thanks <Willber G>. Of course, I didn't have a chance of getting it. I was trying to study it from 'white to move.'
