Apr-17-17  Timi: Terrible
Apr-24-17  yureesystem: Carlsen king move 7.Kd1 is remarkable, it put a question to 5...Bxb1, give up a develop bishop for undeveloped knight on b1 and follow it up with 6...Bb4+, another great move by Carlsen is Qxb1 able his King to go to d1 instead Ke2, black is the one who needs to be careful, why? Because black bishop ( Bb4) is endanger of being trap by pawn to c5 follow up a3.

Jul-10-18  Justin796: Ben Finegold is a GM? TERRIBLE
Mar-24-20  Justin796: The way ben lines up his bishop and his pawn perfectly for an attack on the c file is inexcusable. Carlsen may be great but why make it easy for Magnus?

Yeah, just the worst player ever.

by the bye: have you made 1200 yet?

Mar-24-20  Granny O Doul: I remember Finegold's favorite move being Qc2, because "it always wins something". Carlsen turns his opponent's own weapons against him.

  perfidious: Delicious.

Did not occur to me at the time, but this is, so far as I know, my first Carlsen-2, my one encounter with Finegold coming before his redoubtable opponent was even born.

Oct-27-20  Justin796: Yeah I have made 1200. Mr.. "by the bye" lol dumbass.

  perfidious: The stellar ranking of 1250 awaits the greatest slagger ever.
Oct-28-20  Justin796: The funny thing is you never seem to realize I'm parodying the new generation of Stockfish users. You are one of those people who thought the 'Colbert Report' was a genuine representation of the hosts political beliefs lol. I'm not going back and forth with you, because you no doubt have an endless supply of time to do absolutely nothing, and I've witnessed this. No I do not think GM Ben Finegold is the worst player ever. He is funny, and always says things like "Terrrrible." So up against the world's number 1, I decided to mock him in jest.
