Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-23  Atterdag: D. Gukesh. - Kramnik 3:0 !! Gukesh has done very well so far. He is probably anxious to redeem himself after the mediocre performance in Wijk aan Zee.

  MissScarlett: This event is more confusing than Ostend (1906).
Feb-07-23  Atterdag: LOL - it's hard to imagine that such a tournament actually took place. Tells a lot about the scarce of tournaments in those times, since the organisers could get away with that farce of an event.
Feb-07-23  karik: $2 million? Where does this money come?

I play some chess but it doesn't cost me anything. Maybe other hobbyists cover those millions?

Feb-07-23  dehanne: Why is Kramnik losing to nobodies?

  Dionysius1: Good question. My guess is Kramnik is very rusty. For example, he has played 18 games of FIDE rated rapid play in last 5 years, and the last of those was in July 2018. Gukesh has played 105, most recently in January this year and November 2022. See FIDE's database.

So even if K has a higher FIDE rapid rating, to say the least this need not represent his current form.
