   Mar-27-14 World Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
James Bowman: <I disagree with the rest of your post. You can't nail something like this down to percentage.> I guess that would include arbitrarily arriving at say 50%?
   Mar-27-14 A J Goldsby (replies)
James Bowman: Ok I will and I am. My natural inclination is for the KID but your sample game helped.
   Mar-26-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
James Bowman: Magnus calls it like he see's it and I appreciate that. He seems rational and grounded too. Kramnik has spoken out more often but as noted Vishy has always been the consummate gentleman. I hope Anand providing he wins plays with the same OTB skill he has shown here. Magnus ...
   Mar-23-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
James Bowman: Kazzak most of Nakamura's detractors seem to need some Head and Shoulders themselves, but hypocrisy has never been more in vogue.
   Mar-19-14 D Andreikin vs Khenkin, 2013 (replies)
James Bowman: Pin to win still works.
   Mar-18-14 Svidler vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
James Bowman: I'm impressed with Svidler's insightful and creative end game play in this tournament. It seems this year quality is very high.
   Mar-17-14 Aronian vs Svidler, 2014 (replies)
James Bowman: Vishy or Aronian matters not so much as if who ever wins goes to win and plays at a very high level like they both are here. Anand had been playing an inferior strategy as well as far below his best chess for a good while. Credit Carlsen for bringing good OTB play back to chess
   Mar-15-14 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
James Bowman: <IndianFan> Anand lost because of a deliberate change of strategy, both before and during the match. His draw first approach was killing the chess player he used to be. Anand became painful to watch and has the highest % of draws among top players. He needs to play for ...
   Mar-14-14 Kramnik vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
James Bowman: Ok so this isn't going to be a boring affair.
   Mar-13-14 Anand vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
James Bowman: Anand won by playing dynamically for a positional advantage eventually trapping the knight. This will work better for him than playing for a drawish endgame which doesn't play to his own strengths. While I think the ultimate outcome of the WC match would have been the same, ...
