   Sep-14-15 Wesley So (replies)
 
Libispusher: So far so good for So. It should be interesting to see how he fares this year as his bracket is riddled with players that have a winning record against him. Round 3 vs Le Quang, (-1) in six games Round 4 vs Ngoc Truongson (-1) in three games vs Lagrave, (-2) in seven ...
 
   Apr-17-15 W So vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
 
Libispusher: <17.Rd1!> was a startling finesse and even black acknowledged it in the presser where Wesley also voiced his side regarding the St. Louis fiasco. https://shamkirchess.az/content/108
 
   Feb-13-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
 
Libispusher: <bobthebob> The figures were extracted from official FIDE lists as <schweigzwang> already mentioned above. There seem to be this 'barrier' just below 2800 that Hikaru and Sergei (both accomplished grandmasters for quite a long time now) couldn't quite breach past. ...
 
   Jan-25-15 Tata Steel Masters (2015) (replies)
 
Libispusher: For the second year in a row, it's been a bloodbath compared to the previous years in terms of game results. Perhaps this can be directly attributed to the infusion of more youthful talents among the list of participants. 2010 (14 players) : 37% of the games were decisive 2011
 
   Aug-14-14 Chess Olympiad (2014) (replies)
 
Libispusher: Hikaru, 26 (and perhaps the same can be said about Carlsen, 23 and Karjakin, 24), despite just barely in their mid 20's, may all be considered veterans among the current crop of youthful contenders: Caruana (22) Vachier-Lagrave (23) Giri (20) So (20) Ding (21)
 
   Jun-27-14 A Kovalyov vs W So, 2014 (replies)
 
Libispusher: Black's kingside break <34...g5!?> seemed to be a very good multi-purpose practical move (a) to set up for his minor piece roll out and (b) puts some distraction on the active white King that was ready to defend the queenside while (c) having only a few minutes left to ...
 
   Feb-03-14 Zurich Chess Challenge (2014) (replies)
 
Libispusher: Player TPR from two of their previous classical participations: 2939 Carlsen (10.5 pts / 15 games) 2905 Aronian (11/16) 2785 Caruana (8.5/16) 2742 Anand (5.5/15) 2709 Nakamura (7/16) 2660 Gelfand (6/16) Undoubtedly two of them are, in their current form, performing a ...
 
   Jan-18-14 Aronian vs W So, 2014 (replies)
 
Libispusher: <haydn20: <Libispusher: Aronian in beast mode had his opponent all figured out as early as move 5.> I'm not sure what you mean.> Black was trying to steer the game into a Gruenfeld set up and Aronian came well prepared for it (delaying the his d4 push). I don't know ...
 
   Jan-17-14 W So vs Gelfand, 2014 (replies)
 
Libispusher: That White knight hibernating on the f1 square for the good part of the middlegame, hindering castling, and then somehow, at just about the right moment, bolting out towards a winning position is remarkable. It seems Wesley's playstyle had undergone a gradual transformation - ...
 
   Jan-11-14 R Rapport vs W So, 2014 (replies)
 
Libispusher: <37...d5!> - like a bolt of lightning in the clutch.
