________________________________________

Hi, my name is Greg & I'm 62 years young. I have been playing chess for over 50 of those 62 years. Between the years 1968 & 1990 I was quite active. I was a member of the USCF, CCA(Cleveland Chess Association),Parma Chess Club(south of Cleveland) & captained the Gilmour Academy(Gates Mills,Ohio) chess team 1970 till 1972 when I graduated. My rating during those years(1968-90) fluctuated between 1750 to 1950. Played in the State Championship (OCC-Ohio Chess Congress) a couple of times in the 1980's with modest results (+1,-3,=2 first time & +2,-2,=2 second time). I might have done better but my style is aggressive & it often cost me points in tournaments. Since 1990 I stopped playing competitive chess & still enjoy playing but only casually. My strong suit has always been the analyses of games. I have always had a passion for the game & still do. ______________________________________________

  WinKing: Yeah I made that flyer up almost a month ago & forgot to put Li Chao in for Karjakin. The updated version will have it right. Your the second person to let me know.
Apr-14-16  thegoodanarchist: <WinKing>

Just wanted to say thanks for your analysis of W So vs Kamsky, 2016 today on the Wesley So page: Wesley So (kibitz #197965)

I thought 18. axb was Spanish theory for the Breyer, but you say it wasn't in the opening explorer on this website. Good info.

  WinKing: <thegoodanarchist: I thought 18. axb was Spanish theory for the Breyer, but you say it wasn't in the opening explorer on this website.>

Hi <thegoodanarchist>! I was surprised to see that <chessgames> showed this move(18.axb5) as having never been played. Not sure if this is a new move or not. You would think it would have been tried somewhere before maybe in a correspondence game perhaps. We would have to check with <cro777> & have him check his massive database to know for sure. Wes looked to be in good form in the first game...but so did his main rivals. Should be an entertaining Open judging from the first round.

Apr-15-16  thegoodanarchist: <Should be an entertaining Open judging from the first round.>

Yes, unfortunately I am quite busy today, and was yesterday afternoon. So I have yet to catch up on everything.

  Golden Executive: <Chessgames Bookie: Looks pretty confusing <GE>. :/>

It's certainly very confusing, particularly it's very tricky to find who has the white/black pieces. The key is that we already know which players will have 5 games with the white pieces and the cross-table reflects that since round 1. I already have finished the conversion to normal pairings for all the rounds but I am still triple-checking it.

Today after the blitz games, commentators Gustafsson and Svidler made a quick table of pairings where they mentioned Carlsen-Hairikrishna and Aronian-Topalov for round 1. The cross-table also matches with that so I think at least round 1 is correct but yes I agree with you, I know how easy the organizers made some late minute adjustments.

Apr-18-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: I figured out Rounds 1,2, & 3 no problem <GE>. But like you said in Round 4 your not sure who gets white & who gets the black pieces. Just make sure the numbers being added equal 11 (1-10, 9-2, 8-3 etc.).
Apr-18-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: I deleted it as you asked <GE>. Our results were identical. The order of the pairings in each round was a little different but the pairings themselves were a match. I think you have it right <GE>.

I don't like Norway's new pairing system. I hope they scrap it after this year.

Apr-19-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  Golden Executive: Good to see we got the same results <WK>; thanks for doing it.

<I don't like Norway's new pairing system. I hope they scrap it after this year.>

Yes, It's awful but seems like we should better get used to it.... YouRang chessforum (kibitz #15786)

Oh well, the last 10 days of April are going to be full of fun with all the prediction contests open and the championship bookie leg at its best. Just great!

Apr-20-16

  Golden Executive: <WK> The organizers finally printed out the pairings; incredible all the time they took. http://norwaychess.no/en/resultater...
Apr-21-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Thanks <GE> for posting them. That did take them awhile to get the pairings up. They should have had them posted on day 1. Well at least we know now we had them right.
