   Jan-30-19 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
mrbasso: <I just read in a Russian online newspaper that there are those who think Kramnik's surprise announcement was not, as he himself stated, already planned long beforehand, but was an emotional reaction to his poor performance in Wijk An Zee. I read that Karpov is of that opinion: ...
 
   Sep-18-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
 
mrbasso: Semifinals will be likely 4 uneventful draws. I will skip it and watch the tiebreaks only.
 
   Mar-04-17 Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2017) (replies)
 
mrbasso: "always finding a way to come back" Sounds nice but doesn't reflect reality. If your opponents don't finish you off although it's humanly possible this not an accomplishment of yourself.
 
   Jan-29-17 Short vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
 
mrbasso: 3...Nf6 is risky stuff.
 
   Jan-28-17 Tata Steel Masters (2017) (replies)
 
mrbasso: Sure! This is not the WC. He does not have much to lose and everything to win.
 
   Jan-28-17 Tradewise Gibraltar (2017) (replies)
 
mrbasso: <scormus> I also think they get paired intentionally if possible: Points and colours alllow it.
 
   Jan-28-17 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
 
mrbasso: Ridiculous game! Any 2300 amateur patzer, myself included, would have played 13.Ne5 and enjoyed a comfortable edge but a world class player goes 13.Qa3 and later even loses the game...
 
   Jan-24-17 Carlsen vs Van Wely, 2017 (replies)
 
mrbasso: Why should he play a closed sicilian against the weakest player in the field (not according to ELO but according to reality)??
 
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (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.
