yiotta: <wtpy: I wouldn't call myself a liberal><diceman: That's alright, they never do.> LOL
   Jul-29-18 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: There really is NO chance for Carlsen to win or he'd still be playing. Good game!

   Apr-16-18 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974
yiotta: <" decisions are born in torments..."-Tigran Petrosian> Tell me about it! Well, I suppose it's nice to share SOMETHING with a world champion. Perhaps torment avoidance is the reason some players bang out twenty moves in five or ten minutes and only start to think after ...
