Learned the game at age of 7, played OTB in the 1980's, converted to CC in mid-1990's, now just following what is going on at the top.

Does this path reflect a decline in my chess abilities or increased demands at my day job in sciences?

Still, I feel a spark when seeing a great game.

Many thanks for Santa and the good people at Chessgames for giving me a membership for the year 2015!

paavoh: 10.h3?? Oops, one move too soon. 10.Nd5 and 11. h3 would have been better.

paavoh: Today, Fedoseev-Dubov seems very very sharp. Interesting to find out who will prevail - I am not expecting a draw here...

paavoh: <Also important are the Grand Chess Tour standings, but I have no idea what they are.> If I am right, MVL needs a better result than MC in the final round to capture the #1 spot in the overall GCT standings (and prize money).

paavoh: Simply Re7-Re8 and repetition?

paavoh: <... playing on 64 cores> Does it matter if the time was limited to 1 min/move as written elsewhere? The horizon effect may take over quite soon. Not the fairest set of rules for this contest, IMO.
