Shams: <WannaBe> <So, in theory, water can freeze in hell.> You only need to hop two planets over to find ice on the surface of an 800 Fahrenheit planet. :)
   Dec-07-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Shams: <beatgiant> <The big problem I see with rapid tie breaks is that we see competitors playing for draws in the standard games because they prefer their chances in the rapid games.> Play the tiebreaks first, as has been suggested. Then someone is always ahead in the match.

Shams: <Bobsterman> <<You could fill up pages with contradictions between what Trump said before and what he says now.> What did Emerson say about hobgoblins and little minds?> Now Trump's lying game is a feature, not a bug? Jesus, you might as well be <Big Pawn> at ...

Shams: <19.Bxe6 is a perfectly fine move. No more, no less.> Yes less.

Shams: <kingfu> <Dom, I picked up the bad pawn snatching habit from Korchnoi on the black side of the French. Difference: Korchnoi would usually win and I am not Viktor(ious)!> Another pitfall is trying to copy his French IQP games which are very dynamic. His defense to the Wing ...
