|Sep-19-17|| ||bubuli55: Had a good laugh at those dummies posting about 41.Rb3 as if they can find the move without the computer help. Followed the computer line and there's not even a clear win. I will not even bother to post those comments here. Hilarious!|
But I found these two posts that caught my attention. Thank goodness.
< chessobserver: medyo delikado ang sac exchange dahil sa time constraint >
< PhilFeeley: Things are heating up finally. The engine is telling Wes to sac the exchange. Should be interesting. >
Respect to both.
|Sep-19-17|| ||SugarDom: Agreed.
It wasn't a must-win situation, too.
|Sep-21-17|| ||bubuli55: Pulo y Gata is right. Ding Liren came well prepared. Wesley So was outprepped by the Chinese team. Don't get me wrong. Ding Liren played scintillating the last games. But Wesley So seems to have lost steam. That's very likely when one goes to a long tourney without seconds. Preparation is all yours. Also that 41.Rb3 may have spooked him. |
I won't be surprised if Ding Liren upends Levon Aronian.
|Sep-21-17|| ||bubuli55: Who knows if it's true or not. It's like wearing a knock off Rolex. Anyone who says it's a knock off is bulshittin you. Nobody can tell the difference unless a jeweler opens it up.|
|Sep-28-17|| ||bubuli55: It would be foolish for the German organizers not to pick Nisipeanu.|
|Sep-28-17|| ||bubuli55: < john barleycorn > is not a fool. Nisipeanu it is.|
Or let me put it another way. If the Germans have to pick Kramnik, Nakamura or Joe Blow, they would.
They don't have to. And the more I drink Berliner, the more I believe it's Nisipeanu.
|Oct-01-17|| ||bubuli55: After 5 straight wins at IoM, Kramnik could be the choice. I don't like beer anyway. I'll stick with grey goose.|
|Oct-02-17|| ||bubuli55: Halimaw talaga yung singer Morisette Amon sa Asia Song Festival. Malayo ang mararating ng bata. Madami nang magagaling ng singer sa Pilipinas. Dulot siguro ng karaoke na lumaganap noon pa. Siguro kung maibalik yung barangay chess tourneys may lalabas din na world tsampyon doon.|
|Oct-06-17|| ||chancho: Thanks.|

|Jan-12-19|| ||bubuli55: Haha! The dog is snoring. WGM is cooking breakfast. I’ve got hot coffee in my hand. And Carlson v Liren playing rd1 at Tata.|
|Jan-14-19|| ||bubuli55: Tata Steel 2019. The Wimbledon of Chess. Hmm|
|Jan-14-19|| ||bubuli55: London Chess Classic. The Super Bowl of Chess.|
|Jan-15-19|| ||bubuli55: Just going through that bookie standings and noticed a familiar handle- moulicules. Good to know he’s around.|
|Jan-16-19|| ||bubuli55: Maging and Ding are playing to expectations although Maging hasn’t caught a break yet. Mame seems to have caught his stride after he was tested in the first round. The surprise of them all is Nepo. He’s playing in top form. |
Still plenty of games to be played.
|Jan-17-19|| ||bubuli55: Interesting to note that of the nine games that were won, 7 games were with the black pieces and only two with the white. We have to look into this why so. 26 games drawn.|
|Jan-18-19|| ||bubuli55: After a well earned break we should see at least 2 decisive games today and probably more tomorrow|
|Jan-18-19|| ||bubuli55: Round 6 did not disappoint. Aside from the 2 quick draws, 5 other games were very entertaining. I expect Maging will win again tomorrow and take the lead. Fedong would have to play an error free game just to salvage a draw.|
Giri is 1/2 behind.
Ding has been solid but he faces a tough schedule. Him and Nepo are a point behind.
|Jan-18-19|| ||bubuli55: At the end of the tourney. But never rule out a 29...Bh2|
|Jan-20-19|| ||bubuli55: Wow! Anand! Did not see that coming. Things got more interesting. It’s anybody’s ... it’s up for grabs. |
