  Penguincw: Ah, the matchup between the players with the 2 longest last names.

< Classical games: Shakhriyar Mamedyarov beat Ian Nepomniachtchi 2 to 1, with 4 draws. >

When Mamedyarov has white, he's +1,-0,=2.

A lot of blitz/rapid games between these two.

  moronovich: Nxd4 should be good for the audience due to the unbalanced pawn structure(s).

  moronovich: Almost all tournaments should be like Tata.Instead of looking at the ususal suspects.And 13 rounds also bode for more fightingchess compared to nine.

  Count Wedgemore: <moronovich> Well said, my friend. There's only one thing I'd like to change with their format and that is a slightly shorter time control. It's a bit too generous in my opinion and longer than almost any other tournament nowadays.

  offramp: There is a bit of a conflict on the a1 to h8 diagonal.
Jan-15-19  Rama: Interesting. Would you play Re2 or Rd8? The IQP is a weakness if immobilized.
