mike1: no round 8 bets up and only 5 hour before the start??!!
   Aug-29-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
mike1: a good player is always lucky
   Aug-11-19 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
mike1: hmmm.Once in a while Magnus is really playing it too much in the dynamic way. pawn structures do count (once in a while).
   Aug-05-19 A Coles vs J T Westbrock, 1951 (replies)
mike1: it is ok to be greedy.... just play 14..Qb5+ and white needs to find c4 to be even a touch better. SF: 15.c4 Qxc4+ 16.Kf3 Nd7 17.Nxg7+ Kf8 18.Qh6 Nxf6 19.Nf5+ Ke8 20.Nd6+ Ke7 21.Nxc4 Nxe4 22.Kxe4 Be6 23.Qg5+ Kf8 24.Qc5+ Kg7 25.Nd6 h6 26.Qe5+ Kh7 27.Ke3 b6 28.Qe4+ Kg7 29.f4 Rhd8
   Jul-25-19 P Maghsoodloo vs J Cori, 2019
mike1: white played a 1-minute game again....
   Jul-23-19 J Cori vs S Bogner, 2019 (replies)
mike1: 8. cxd5 seems to be a new approach... c5 was played before and the engines play it as well... but opening the position looks better to me (that Ra7 is horribly placed)
   Jul-02-19 Gelfand vs McShane, 2019 (replies)
mike1: Hoho... Good old Boris. Showing all his experience. Don't think I would have swapped my octopus on d6 for the bishop c8, but that was the decisive strategic decision. Hope he wins the tournament
   Jun-26-19 McShane vs A Khairat, 2017 (replies)
mike1: not much of a game at all- not even for blitz (let alone a world championship).
   Jun-09-19 Kotronias vs Van Wely, 1993 (replies)
mike1: not much to do with " insane" though... there is no win for white after 18...N7f6 (not N5f6).
   May-31-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
mike1: Hi Diamedes think that Wiktionary got that one wrong. "La Florentina" is still today the name for the region and I dont think it has that much to do with the name of the town" Firenze"....
