  Everett: Super-strong positional chess. One must create activity or eventually be squeezed.
Jun-17-14  tonsillolith: Ouch. In the end the set of Black's viable knight moves forms a compact 1-parameter family, which cripples his mobility. The discrete topology of the parameterizing space eventually leads to the loss of a pawn, at which point the extension of the space by a larger set of parameters is not enough to prevent zugzwang, since the knight is positioned at a fixed basepoint, and in the resulting dynamical system, the Black king cannot maintain an orbit with small enough cardinality. Wonderful play by White.
Jun-17-14  pawnstar3: The comment above mine is one of the funniest things i've ever read on this site. I hope it was intentional
Jun-17-14  IFNB: I hope so too.

  Everett: The N had little mobility from move 20 or so. Carlsen kept that piece bad, and created a winning position out of that advantage. Quite Karpovian. Whites 23rd and 29th are examples of this.

Yes, yes, I've already covered this in detail.

I'm currently trudging through "Continuous Moduli Spaces of Combinatorial Automorphism Groups, Chapter 8 - Applications to Chess".

My understanding of chess has expanded enormously, but for some reason my rating has dropped 400 points.

  Everett: <tonsilloth> maybe something is lost in the translation.
