mrbasso: I predicted Giri will draw all games until round 9 but I guess he will draw Rapport as well. His only chance to win a game seems to be Van Wely in round 10. He has black but van Wely plays bad with black and white in this tournament.
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
mrbasso: Carlsen is certainly pissed off now. His play in this match so far is way below his standards. About 2700
   Nov-19-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: Ruy Lopez with 8.h3 and 9.d3 ist quite harmless generally. At this level everyone is prepared. I would be very surprised if Karjakin wins a game with this.
   Mar-28-16 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: the rook sacrifice is very obvious. Period. You don't need an engine to consider it if you can play chess a little. Your example game has nothing to do with it at all.
   Mar-26-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
mrbasso: < If the plus score is the same, the player who wins more is no better or worse than the player who loses fewer.> Some argue that a player who wins more is more of a fighter and deserves to be rewarded but of course the higher number of wins and losses might also arise due to ...
   Mar-21-16 A Giri vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: I would rather say Giri is a very hard man to lose against (of course this only refers to the top players).
   Mar-21-16 Anand vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: No matter who wins: He certainly is not necessarily the best player in the field.
   Mar-20-16 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: What should he do? The computer suggestion 20...Kh8 doesn't look convincing either. Probably you have to improve earlier. 17...Kh8 or 18...g6 are candidates.
   Mar-20-16 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: No why? He certainly saw Rb2. He didn't see 31...Qf5 which is difficult to find and played the natural but only second best move 31...Nd5. One move later he made the decisive mistake 32...Kh7?.
   Mar-19-16 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
mrbasso: <The Kings Domain> 16...Bf6 followed by Bd7 instead of 16...Bd7 immediately and white has problems because he is forced to go Nd2 or Nh2 to parry Be8 threat. Then square d4 is very weak and white can't go c2-c3 to cover it because pawn d3 would be lost.
