  alexmagnus: I'm not downplaying anything, I'm just against premature euphoria. It has noting to do with liking or not. See, I'm a fan of Carlsen, and when MC was not yet the best he became around 2012, I always put some realism into the discussion of his results. Same with Hou and Wei Yi. And Rapport, for that matter.

Hou performed well here. But nothing too far above her usual form swings.

May-22-17  Sokrates: Well, <alexmagnus>, there is a difference between "premature euphoria" and simply acknowledging a great achievement by a player, who in many ways has suffered strange conditions for the free enfolding of her talents. I hear your intentions, but I have to concur with <AzingaBonzer> that you seem to view the glass half empty instead of half full, when it comes to Yifan Hou. I would gladly stand corrected on that assessment.
May-22-17  BOSTER: The stalemate is a jewerly, decorative object worn on the chessboard. Don't change the rules.
May-22-17  Pedro Fernandez: << BOSTER>: It is not easy to get the ticket to play in Candidates among such players like Caruana, So, Kramnik, Aronian and maybe Carlsen.> Hey <Boster>, really interesting you mentioning Carlsen as a possible participant in Candidates. According what I know, there is not any FIDE rule which prohibits Carlsen play there. I had a reply of our pals telling to me that such a fact was possible.
May-22-17  Pedro Fernandez: <<CountryGirl>: Great result for Hou!> No doubt <CG>, perhaps her best performance!
May-22-17  Pedro Fernandez: <<tuttifrutty>: What a boring tourney...what do we expect when the players were culled from protected species? A snoooozer feast.> C'mon <Tutty>! Don't be so radicaal. Greetings!
May-23-17  morfishine: Excellent tournament!


May-23-17  botvinnik64: Ding is (was) the deserved winner; he fought all he could, with Black in the last round, to win. Yifan also pressed in almost every game, and she won three, just as many as Ding. For me, they were the stars.
May-23-17  JimNorCal: Nero also showed combative spirit
May-23-17  BOSTER: Who is Nero?
May-23-17  Absentee: <botvinnik64: Ding is (was) the deserved winner; he fought all he could, with Black in the last round, to win. Yifan also pressed in almost every game, and she won three, just as many as Ding. For me, they were the stars.>

Seconded. I'm a little miffed by Mamedyarov's second place. More than half of his games were unplayed.

May-23-17  Sokrates: <JimNorCal: Nero also showed combative spirit


BOSTER: Who is Nero?>

Roman emperor 37-68. On the 15 Dec. this year we may celebrate his 1,980th birthday. Very combative man and according to himself, a brilliant singer. However, there is no substantial evidence about his presence in this tournament. It would have been sensational, though!

  WannaBe: While Rome burned, Nero fiddled, and fans were yelling "Mucho the Nero"!!

I'll show myself out the door, now. Thank you.

May-23-17  JimNorCal: Heh :)

I meant Nepo but stupid auto correct got me. Glad to see you guys run with the ball!

May-23-17  nok: <Roman emperor 37-68.> That's a pretty long career. He must have played everyone from Keres to Fischer.
Premium Chessgames Member
  tamar: <JimNorcal> Nice try, but you blew the whistle on Nero, who fled Rome after the fire, and marauded the earth beginning in 1497 playing as NN
May-23-17  Absentee: <nok: <Roman emperor 37-68.> That's a pretty long career. He must have played everyone from Keres to Fischer.>

Also had a very successful post-imperial career as optical media burner. Not everyone can manage the transition so smoothly.

May-23-17  nok: I see what you mean. All I/O buses lead to that media.
May-24-17  Sokrates: <tamar: <JimNorcal> Nice try, but you blew the whistle on Nero, who fled Rome after the fire, and marauded the earth beginning in 1497 playing as NN>

Or, perhaps, reincarnated here:
Napoleon Bonaparte vs Madame De Remusat, 1804

  AylerKupp: <JimNorCal> Just remember, it isn't a real tournament unless Nero is playing in it.

  WannaBe: I heard there will be movie made, soon. Starring Robert DeNero.

  technical draw: At least Nakamura earned laundry money.
May-24-17  Howard: Oh? How much laundry money?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Mucho, Mucho, Mucho, De Nero!!
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <Howard: Oh? How much laundry money?>

That depends. How many Giorgio Armani suits do you reckon he has?
