sac 4 mate: On its recent form in the qualifiers, the United States didn't deserve to be anywhere near the World Cup. Too many of its top players - Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and others - have left promising careers at European clubs behind for big paychecks at home in ...

sac 4 mate: <Personally, I think our President should concentrate on North Korea and healthcare rather than ripping into athletes and the NFL.> I'm not sure how much of Trump's concentration this whole matter actually takes up. He's said a few sentences about it at a rally and made a ...

sac 4 mate: Giri slipped with 47...Ke7 and now we may have a decisive game today after all.
   May-26-17 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
sac 4 mate: <" delegation noticed the high number of toilet visits by my opponent." Their mistake was pointing it out to toplaov and making an issue of it.> That's one element of the Toiletgate saga that's frequently overlooked - that Topalov's team only became aware of the ...
   Apr-08-17 US Championship (2017) (replies)
sac 4 mate: <tamar> <Would this be the greatest win by an outsider ever in national competition if Akobian wins it? Hard to beat Savon winning by 1.5 pts ahead of Smyslov, Tal, and Karpov (and Stein) USSR Championship (1971)> I don't even think it'd even be the greatest win by an

sac 4 mate: <<The U.S. still moves into fourth place in the hexagonal, which would mean facing off with the fifth-placed team in the Asian Football Confederation for a place in the World Cup.> Ok, so it looks like we have to beat Iran or Japan, some such team to sneak in. Tying ...

sac 4 mate: Using performance rating to determine who gets seeded into the final is relatively fair, but to be completely equitable it should exclude games the tied players played against each other. Otherwise you're effectively punishing a player for having a higher rating.

sac 4 mate: <A few months makes such a qualitative distinction? Time served is all ready over 6 and a half years.> It's not six and a half years versus seven years per se - rather, it's about holding her for six months after Obama leaves office versus releasing her right away, which ...
   Jan-27-17 Jeffery Xiong (replies)
sac 4 mate: Even when his rating stagnated, it did so at a higher level than Xiong has reached so far. Both these kids have enormous potential, but let's see Xiong break into the top 30-40, where Wei Yi has been the past two years, and then exceed that level, as Wei seems to be doing now. A ...
   Jan-25-17 Carlsen vs Van Wely, 2017 (replies)
sac 4 mate: Van Wely had some good runs in the early part of the 2000's, for instance finishing +1 in 2003 and on an even score the next two years, but he hasn't broken 50 percent in a long time. I remember they sat him out in 2011 to give L'Ami and Smeets a try, but they fared even worse. I
