yiotta: I don't understand this talk of chess being less serious. Are you less serious in your games, whether classical or blitz? I've had the pleasure of playing titled players occasionally and I can assure you they were as serious as a heart attack even though I was much the weaker player.
   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: A difference in the position is that the Black king is free to roam, while the White king is constricted by his pawns. Will it matter?

yiotta: <tonsilliloth: It's hilarious when Trumpettes emerge from their echo chambers of ignorance and actually encounter intellectuals, who see straight through Trump's chicanery. They tend to flip out lol> You sound VERY intellectual! Is it you that tends to flip out lol, or ...

yiotta: <offramp> Thanks, the answer was staring me in the face. I didn't fully grasp the GOTD title either.

   Jul-22-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: Let this be a lesson for us all!
   Jun-09-18 Vogt vs Ulf Andersson, 1975 (replies)
yiotta: I agree, Simple Chess is an excellent book. If you ever wondered why it can take White 12 moves to develop 4 pieces in the Ruy Lopez, Stean will explain. While his book isn't about the Ruy specifically, the Ruy provides a good forum for his discussion of space and the capacity of ...

yiotta: <Sneaky> Wish I'd said it! :)
