Just your common French Canadian expert.

   Nov-22-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
 
Layson: Looking at how the games are shaping up today, it just seems to confirm an impression I've held for a long time. Higher quality entertaining games always occur after rest days. More rest days leads to more quality for top level chess. Of course, organisers and fans don't like rest ...
 
   Sep-09-17 Anton Kovalyov (replies)
 
Layson: Given that the FIDE dress code explicitly states that Bermuda Shorts are allowed, and given Azmai's character, I'm quite tempted to side with Kovalyov on this one.
 
   Jan-29-17 Tata Steel Masters (2017) (replies)
 
Layson: <Wesley So cannot be stopped and Magnus Carlsen has stagnated. The intersection of these two lines is inevitable.Wesley So cannot be stopped and Magnus Carlsen has stagnated. The intersection of these two lines is inevitable.> I hate it when I stagnate at the absolute top of ...
 
   Sep-13-16 A Tari vs E Torre, 2016 (replies)
 
Layson: Apparently Torre missed a chance to make a glamorous tournament event better as he had an option for the win with 22. ... Rc3!, forcing the Queen off the "f" file and it's X-Ray eyes on the f6 square. There's just no good defence against Bd7 trapping the Bishop. It's an odd theme. In
 
   Mar-26-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
 
Layson: <Imran Iskandar> The tie-break scenario does make one uneasy and hope it doesn't come down to tie breaks. If all games in round 13 are drawn and Karjakin and Caruana draw early for some reason, it comes down to this: If Anand wins: Caruana wins the tournament If Anand draws ...
 
   Dec-07-15 London Chess Classic (2015) (replies)
 
Layson: <... It's disgraceful Kramnik is not there. Chess is so political and confused.> It's disgraceful that Kramnik turned down the invitation? He was invited, just like Wesley So.
 
   Sep-25-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
 
Layson: I wonder if Svidler will get the extra motivation to beat Giri from the statement from Giri that he thought Svidler had switched to "Tourist Mode" because we was doing Banter Blitz on chess24 and other activities.
 
   May-28-15 FIDE Grand Prix Khanty-Mansiysk (2015) (replies)
 
Layson: Owen Hargreaves is Canadian born with an English father and Welsh mother.
 
   Mar-23-15 Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2015) (replies)
 
Layson: I guess today would have been a very good day to bet against the Russians. Looking like an 0-4 at this point. Ouch!
 
   Mar-16-15 D Forcen Esteban vs Granda Zuniga, 2012
 
Layson: You've a long way to go before you become the next chrisowen, <apanadsky>
