   Oct-12-19 A Sarana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
starry2013: It's not always easy in the computer age when you against prep as black, Carlsen needs to take risks to win in some circumstances but it can be too dangerous. It's remarkable he has the rating he has considering the impact of computers.
   Oct-09-19 Grand Swiss IoM (2019) (replies)
starry2013: I don't mind a reasonable rapid time control for tiebreaks, but not blitz.
   Oct-08-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
starry2013: When was the last non-Russian player a wildcard?

starry2013: There was more excitement even just in the classical games than you find in many such 'super' GM tournaments. I have a feeling some just don't want to change their position.
   May-28-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
starry2013: "Who invented this creepy move?" A computer engine I'd guess.
   May-14-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
starry2013: No area of sport or art needs a greatest person to represent it. It's better to enjoy the variety. I don't know why people feel they need hero worship or thinking they are in the group backing the winner. Maybe the latter is part of something bound up in chess, somehow trying to ...
