   L13 has kibitzed 167 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-24-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
L13: <FIDE and Super-GM tournament organizers really do need to consider some version of giving players an extra 30 minutes at certain critical positions a couple of times each event, to encourage the creation of brilliancies over-the-board.> Why would they do that when they want to ...
   Sep-04-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
L13: Why would anyone blame Carlsen for taking part in this tournament if it's allowed? If you don't think he should be able to participate, take it up with FIDE.
   Mar-13-15 Bundesliga (2014/15) (replies)
L13: Thank you for the link, <whiteshark>! I don't have a problem finding the games elsewhere, though; I'm just wondering why Chessgames seems to be neglecting such a strong championship. In any event, there's a new round tomorrow.
   Mar-11-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
L13: <Magnus has become world champion in the most questionable of circumstances. First, he was seeded into the challengers tourney without lifting a finger (i.e. without qualifying via the zonal, interzonal and matchplay as others before him did) by virtue of a flawed barometer of ...
   Mar-01-15 Garry Kasparov (replies)
L13: <Absentee>, please stop embarrassing yourself. <alexmagnus> is describing Putin's rhetoric perfectly.
   Nov-10-13 European Team Championship (2013) (replies)
L13: Apparently the organisers have asked Chessbomb to stop broadcasting, so their website is now the only place where you can follow the games.
   Nov-09-13 Carlsen vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
L13: I wasn't surprised by this game at all. While I understand the <desire> to see more exciting chess in a world championship match, I don't understand where such <expectations> come from. Winning the match is way more important to these players than getting praise for being ...
   Mar-30-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
L13: <Carlsen's mistake is trying to be like Capablanca. He's relying on his instinct. You can't do that nowadays.> People keep making these apocalyptic predictions about Carlsen's inevitable decline because of his flawed approach to chess, yet they're all based on... what, his first ...
   Mar-29-13 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2013 (replies)
L13: Anyone who thinks this game was thrown on the orders of the Russian Chess Federation or whatever is completely delusional.
   Mar-14-13 Luke McShane (replies)
L13: I noticed that McShane was back on 2700chess's list of 2700-rated players prior to the release of FIDE's March ranking, but his official rating of 269x didn't change on March 1. Anyone know why that might be? Do rating changes/rated games sometimes take longer than a month to process? ...
