   Dec-13-16 Kulaots vs J Geller, 2002
swordfish: Hard to believe a GM rated nearly 2500 would lose this way, but then I noticed the game was played back in 2002.
   Sep-28-16 Mark Izrailovich Dvoretsky (replies)
swordfish: RIP IM Mark Dvoretsky. No doubt one of the great teachers the game has ever known.
   Sep-28-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
swordfish: Great, they're charging for online access, and the live tix are still coming "soon" on Ticketmaster. For the Chennai match in 2013, tickets were affordable and readily available, and it was easy to follow online. I recall the more recent WC match was also.
   Apr-25-16 A Chandra vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
swordfish: Not an upset - Chandra, 16 years old, is under 2500.
   Apr-10-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2005
swordfish: I love the prophetic comment by bishopawn on 12/3/05.
   Mar-28-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
swordfish: Congrats to Karjakin - a well-deserved victory in a very tough field. Caruana of course has a bright future, as does Giri. I remember a few years ago - I think at Corus - Carlsen won the A group, Karjakin the B and Caruana the C. It seemed clear the new generation had arrived in ...
   Mar-23-16 Caruana vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
swordfish: How will White meet 15...Ng3 ?
   Mar-20-16 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
swordfish: Very instructive game, at least for me. It looked like Black got the jump on White with this Qside attack immediately after White castled, but Caruana apparently saw further into the position.
   Mar-19-16 Karjakin vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
swordfish: White's B on g2 looks menacing on the long diagonal with Black's Q-side pawns advanced.
   Mar-15-16 Karjakin vs Anand, 2016 (replies)
swordfish: It could be some sort of b3 Colle System, if only White would play d4.
