Apr-08-13  sagahelten: The quality of play at the Candidates

8.4.2013 - We all enjoyed a very high level of play demonstrated by some of the top human chessplayers in the FIDE Candidates Tournament, London 2013. However, what was the exact quality of play in these games – and can this be measured? Can we compare it objectively to the quality of play in previous World Championship matches? Matej Guid and Ivan Bratko make an attempt:

  Dionysius1: Thanks <sagahelten>, and it is a very interesting article. There's a strange inconsistency though: "lower (computer) scores indicate the better quality of play"


"Let us note that both Carlsen’s and Kramnik’s computer score greatly deteriorated in the last few rounds. After Round 10 their scores were both under 3.00, which is truly remarkable"

don't make sense together - or at least, I can't make sense of them!

Apr-08-13  sagahelten: <Dionysius1> Maybe it should have been "Before Round 10". Makes more sense, as you say.
Apr-08-13  sagahelten: Interesting that Carlsen both makes few mistakes AND plays complex positions. This makes him special. (As if anybody doubted that).
