   tzar has kibitzed 268 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-29-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
tzar: <Memethecat:> I agree with your remark...I said "Great Champion" meaning an All Time Great player who became WC.
   Mar-17-14 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
tzar: <Petrosianic:> I doubt that Russia will keep Crimea. In the past (post soviet era) it has shown that it has no expansionist territorial ambitions (proved in Georgia where after calming the situation they withdrew and could have stayed). If any, Crimea (except the naval base) ...
   Mar-02-14 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
tzar: <devere:> The problem is that before this strait wins Fischer had been more than 10 years playing with no real superiority over the best (and even with very bad results against some of them i.e. Spassky). Meanwhile, Capa was at least until 1927 a super genius thousands of miles ...
   Feb-17-14 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
tzar: Kasparov also said that Tal's appearance was almost threatening because it brought back romantic elements of chess but in a much higher level than in the pre-Steinitz time.
   Feb-14-14 Lasker vs J Bauer, 1889
tzar: I think this game became a model for future players as far as bishop against King's pawns sacs are concerned.
   Feb-14-14 Robert James Fischer (replies)
tzar: <AylerKupp: In the upcoming Candidates Tournament half of the players are Russian. Funny how neither those FLAME THROWERS nor those ice cold corrupt grips lasted very long. Hope that you got you basking while you could.> Agreed, we like it or not, Russian is still the mother ...
   Feb-13-14 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
tzar: I think that Lasker in his 60's was 2700+ by today's standards.
   Feb-06-14 Maxime Vachier-Lagrave (replies)
tzar: Very close to victory in Gibraltar. I liked especially the last game with Ivanchuk, very brave. If France's number one keeps progressing he can be a challenge for the best in a short time. He has a lot of class.
   Feb-06-14 Nigel Short (replies)
tzar: Nigel: your "friend" Cheparinov has won Gibraltar (a tournament in which you have many times performed excellently). What do you think about him as a player? (we know that maybe he is not the greatest example of sportsmanship).
   Feb-06-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
tzar: From the 10 Elo highest rated players in history 9 are active today as Carlsen's opponents. Does this mean that Carlsen has by far the strongest opposition ever or that Elo system is so hyperinflated that there is no way to do any reliable comparison with past periods?
