   Maatalkko has kibitzed 1876 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-21-22 Hans Niemann (replies)
Maatalkko: First post in years...I read through the complaint, and while some of the language is a bit flowery I'm generally impressed with the strength of Oved's argument. The timeline of events "speaks for itself" and it will be very hard for <> to overcome the obvious ...
   Sep-29-15 Wei Yi (replies)
Maatalkko: <Troller: Re 16-year-old prodigies: What happened to Judit Polgar, Gata Kamsky, Ruslan Ponomariov etc? They do not count because they did not become world champions (yet :))? We have little data on the early Capablanca, but a serious point could be made for him as well.> ...
   Sep-22-15 World Cup (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: I agree that Wei Yi looked the stronger player. Ding Liren himself expressed the opinion, following Game 1, that Wei Yi played better than he did after the opening phase. Moreover, he just kind of laughed and smiled when the interviewer said "but you're China's #1? You're #7 in ...
   Sep-01-15 John M Burke (replies)
Maatalkko: If Burke was actually at a 2600 level, he could have scored 8.5/9 at those tournaments and been suddenly rated 2800+.
   Jul-02-15 Capablanca vs J A Lewis, 1919
Maatalkko: Impressive win. 22...Kxf6! was a good decision. Perhaps the plan of 14. Bh3 and 16. f4 was not correct.
   May-29-15 European Championship (Women) (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: Based on the Chessbase report and the statement by Sandu that <ChessVip> linked to, it seems that Natalia Zhukova drafted, circulated, and published both petitions directly before her Round 8 game against Sandu. That was a low blow by Zhukova, given that she provided no ...
   May-29-15 Natalia Zhukova (replies)
Maatalkko: Shame on Zhukova. She drafted and circulated two petitions containing unsubstantiated cheating allegations against Mihaela Sandhu, to whom she had lost in the 2012 European Championships, directly before her Round 8 game against Sandu. The only "evidence" against Sandu is that she
   Apr-28-15 World Team Championship (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: <HeMateMe> That's a very bad tax evasion attempt. It would be much better for the chess player to simply not report some of their income in the first place.
   Apr-22-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: Overgod's post is the intellectual equivalent of going on a sports blog and claiming that he runs a 2:10 marathon, benches 405, and golfs under par, when he's not busy playing Major League Baseball.
   Apr-10-15 US Championship (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: <devere: There is of course no "note take rule".> FIDE Laws of Chess: 8.1b The scoresheet shall be used only for recording the moves, the times of the clocks, offers of a draw, matters relating to a claim and other relevant data. 11.5 It is forbidden to distract or annoy ...
