Oct-13-14  Garech: Beautiful game from Don Fabiano - the final attack starting with 31...d3 in particular was great and very aesthetically pleasing. He and Gelfand are now tied for first with one round to go - tomorrow should be an exciting day!

  Sokrates: Right <Garech>. Very convincing play by Caruana - he totally crushed LDP, who, that has to be said, played weakly in this game.

  HeMateMe: fun with tempos.
Oct-13-14  luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.
Oct-13-14  Shams: Can someone tell me what Black's strategic compensation is for playing ...e6 and ...g6, then trading off his DSB and castling kingside?
Oct-13-14  colosseo: <Shams: Can someone tell me what Black's strategic compensation is for playing ...e6 and ...g6, then trading off his DSB and castling kingside?>

Center control and a slight lead in development (those tempoes/ii HMM and luzhin refer to), it looks like, which allows him to get things rolling with 12....Ne5.

A couple of famous examples of this approach:

Smyslov vs Fischer, 1970

Smyslov vs Tal, 1964

Oct-13-14  Shams: <colosseo> Thanks.
Oct-13-14  BOSTER: Nice POTD Black to play 31...
Oct-13-14  Mendrys: <luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.>As Oxford and Webster could tell you, the plural of tempo is also tempos though to be honest I prefer tempi.

  Jambow: There is one for old school chess fans. Tempos tempi or just the temptation of tactical chess it's all totally terrific by me.

tempo is italian

Oct-14-14  boz: I say spaghetti, you say spaghettios.
Oct-14-14  OneArmedScissor: <plang: tempo is italian>

And where do you think Italian came from?
We are speaking English, not Italian. Just say tempos like a normal, well adjusted person, otherwise you sound like an autist.

Oct-14-14  SugarDom: And you sound like an unschooled rustic.

Tempi, it is....

Oct-14-14  Edeltalent: <Mendrys: <luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.>As Oxford and Webster could tell you, the plural of tempo is also tempos> As Kramnik could tell you, the singular of tempo is also tempi ;-)
Oct-16-14  ajile: Brutal demolition. Black's final position has all pieces coordinated while White is scattered all over the board.
