   Sep-18-18 6th Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
starry2013: Sokrates: <IMO the Fischer random is a great format, since the players cannot prepare anything for the game - the position was given when they met at the board the present round.> They did have an hour to prepare before rapid and about half an hour before blitz, but without

starry2013: So will compete in the chess960 exhibition event Sept 11-14
   Aug-28-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
starry2013: incomprehensible blunders often happen after a few hours play.
   Aug-26-18 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
starry2013: Caruana's been defending all year against Carlsen it feels, yet for whatever reason he hasn't lost yet.

starry2013: He does have a cumbersome look to him. But more importantly I don't think his English is that great compared to other top players we are used to.

starry2013: He's still easily the best British player. The reason he very briefly dropped off to either Howell or Short this century was because his rating dipped and not because others improved drastically.

starry2013: He got a relatively quick draw with black against tournament leader Bu later in the day, most likely tired after the early play he had in the speedchess. You'd expect So with his greater experience to know more about some openings and that showed early on perhaps.

starry2013: People throw the word racist around a lot these days even if it doesn't make any sense (which is most of the time)
   Jun-25-18 S Platzack vs J van Baarle, 1967 (replies)
starry2013: It looked like a smothered mate but the bishop on g7 was out of my thinking probably as I was concentrating on the other bishop.
