transpose: I have now heard that his style resembles that of Capablanca, Petrosian, and Tal. Any chess player that can elicit such comparisons must be a universal player, capable of playing any type of position.

transpose: I am looking forward to Carlsen v Caruana. May there be many decisive games by each player.

transpose: <Arconax> His relative weakness in faster time controls: currently 18th in rapid and 10th in blitz on the live rating list. There is no one close to Magnus' relative strength in all three time controls or FR. But if I had to pick a challenger out of the current top ten ...

transpose: Crazy game!

transpose: <keypusher> Seems like a double standard when posts about a male commentator are never about their sex appeal, yet women are held to a different standard. My comment was not directed toward your comments as I have not read them. I was referring to comments like the ...

transpose: I think the origin of ...e5 as a response to f3 goes back much further in time. Wasn't it played in the Zurich 1953 tournament?

transpose: Very cool game. And an even cooler post-mortem.
 
   Jan-13-18 Navara vs E Inarkiev, 2016 (replies)
 
transpose: Seems to me 20 ..d4 has to win, and I saw f3 as the best defense for white but after Nxf3+ i assessed the position as winning for black. As others point out, that isn't the best move, and the variations are numerous to see. I guess that is why this puzzle is rated very difficult.

transpose: I am surprised Keres never defeated Karpov, but then i only see two quick draws between the two. Too bad.
 
   Dec-27-17 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2017
 
transpose: Svidler forces a repetition.I find it interesting how Magnus is choosing off-beat (but double edged) openings as Black to claw his way to the top of the leaderboard in this tournament after suffering two losses early. Respect!
