   Nov-17-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
starry2013: AylerKupp: <However, statistics (here I go again!) show that White typically has about a 10% win/loss advantage over Black <and> that this advantage is relatively independent of the players' ratings.> But as I said on another thread how much of this is because of ...

starry2013: Marmot PFL: <Missing a win when tired after 6-7 hours is not surprising or uncommon. Grischuk I think found the right line but wasn't sure that it was winning either. If the game was adjourned as in the "old days" Caruana could have worked it out in overnight analysis.> The
   Nov-12-18 Ding Liren

starry2013: Carlsen has blown other advantages v Caruana this year, but he keeps getting these chances.
   Nov-06-18 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
starry2013: Carlsen has largely outplayed Caruana this year even if he couldn't get a big advantage in wins.
   Oct-27-18 Isle of Man Masters (2018) (replies)
starry2013: Gift wrapped present for Wojtaszek, but I don't think it was birthday.
   Oct-22-18 Wesley So (replies)
starry2013: If he can't regain ratings points then he wouldn't really be in shape to compete in the Candidates tournament anyway. Plus selection tends to be more complicated in the past than just by ratings points. My point was fans tend to go overboard about relatively small ratings ...
   Oct-19-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
starry2013: I wonder how much psychology is involved as well though with some people thinking black is about just being defensive.
   Sep-26-18 W So vs L'Ami, 2018 (replies)
starry2013: I don't know what the Olympics rules are but this isn't the Olympics is it. I know they gave it a similar name, probably thought a useful way to sell it. Among the chess federations competing can be non-national ones too like the blind team.
   Sep-18-18 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
