|Sep-13-17|| ||Arconax: <SugarDom> I wouldn't call young Wesley a "punk" but yes, I do think Jobava has excellent chances of winning tomorrow.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Don't even mention the name, it's unspeakable.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||tuttifrutty: <<SugarDom> I wouldn't call young Wesley a "punk" >|
I agree...but I would call Sugardom a punk instead...
<but yes, I do think Jobava has excellent chances of winning tomorrow.>
My crystal ball says BJ has a slim .0001% chance of winning.
|Sep-13-17|| ||Arconax: <fruitcake: My crystal ball says BJ has a slim .0001% chance of winning.>|
I have more faith in <SugarDom>'s (and my own) assessment of tomorrow's game between Jobava and So than your "crystal ball" predictions, thank you very much.
|Sep-13-17|| ||tuttifrutty: We shall see...|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Jobava the Hut's stockfish is working just fine. He's receiving the morse code from his left shoe.|
Putting the lights out on Punk Solo.
|Sep-13-17|| ||Nonnus: If only Joba can put his N at h5 and his heavy artilleries on the g-file|
|Sep-13-17|| ||Nonnus: Current position looks very good for Joba. The g7 and h6 pawns are sitting ducks targets|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Jobava is ahead in tempo and clock. Always a dangerous combination.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Very high quality fight. No real blunders so far...|
|Sep-13-17|| ||geniokov: I think it's a draw! White cannot make any chances to convert it into substantial advantage. The only advantage White has is computer evaluation.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Exactly <geniokov>. The idiots in the WS page is too slow in the uptake.
That what happens when they ban people like us there.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||geniokov: I was impressed about Jobaba's handling of White pieces!|
|Sep-13-17|| ||geniokov: Jobava is a dangerous player. He must not be understimated. He is the same as GM Kiril Giorgiev!|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: But this is looking more like a draw than a decisive result.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||geniokov: Correct Sugardom!|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: Rooks and pawns endgames with equal material are mostly drawn.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||SugarDom: In other words it's a <technical draw>.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||geniokov: After Black's..g5 then it would be draw!|
|Nov-16-17|| ||waustad: This week the Austrian Bundesliga starts, with Jobava playing first board for Sparkasse Jenbach. Games are on live via http://chess-results.com/live.aspx?...|
|Nov-26-17|| ||Ironmanth: Happy birthday, Grandmaster! Surely enjoy your daring and brilliant style. Cheers, sir!|
|Dec-15-17|| ||posoo: WAT dos dis man have in his EARES?|
|Aug-03-19|| ||alexmagnus: http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev...|
That's quite a rating chart... What happened?
|Aug-06-19|| ||Troller: <alexmagnus: http://ratings.fide.com/id.phtml?ev...|
Just noticed that as well - saw him on CB with 2584 and wondered if there was another Jobava. But I do not know of an explanation.
