   Dec-13-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: And then for So, he is on MVL and Nepo's side of the bracket, and therefore in a position to decide his fate, despite not having many points going into this GP. He'll need to win the event with 1 or 2 more bonus points for winning in the classical phase, depending on whether ...
   Oct-23-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <To clear up the record claim Carlsen needs 111 unbeaten games to beat Tiviakov's 110 claim which ChessBase seem to endorse.> I don't really know why chess news outlets keep talking about Tiviakov and Lalic's unbeaten streaks as if they are rumors when they presumably ...
   Sep-01-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <parmetd: Ah <Billy Vaughan> stealing Giri's very unfunny line without giving credit?> Did Giri say this? I suppose I'll have to share credit like Newton and Leibniz
   Aug-29-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: Listening to the commentary for the first time. I missed Yas saying "Carywana"
   May-30-19 FIDE Candidates (Women) (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: It would've been interesting to do a sisters vs. sisters event between the Muzychuks and the Kosintsevas when they were active
   May-26-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Game Collection: 16-player KO, do we want this? At least one can count the games in it.> That's readable, though liable to scroll things horizontally. You could also put successive rounds below the previous ones under a "SEMI-FINALS" header, though that makes the ...
   Jan-29-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Sokrates> I'm not delusional ;) but I thought it would be an interesting post for the rest of us
   Dec-14-18 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2018) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <Given Carlsen's age where he should be entering not leaving his prime, it is obvious that Carlsen is suffering from a medical problem.> Is it so obvious? I'm about the same age as Carlsen and also have less energy than I did five years ago. My friends tell me the same. ...
   Nov-29-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Billy Vaughan: <(he will be at 2833 on the next FIDE rating list, only a tantalizing 1 Elo rating point below Carlsen in Classic time control games)> FIDE still calculates ratings off the chart rather than the formula, right? I was under the impression there would be no change in ...
   Nov-02-18 Humpy Koneru (replies)
Billy Vaughan: It seems Humpy's making a return to chess after her marriage and the birth of her child. I'm surprised the chess media haven't picked up on this story.
