Trying madly to improve. Love going over great games, and love it even more when someone else asks the stupid question so I don't have to.

   Nov-28-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
MarbleSkull: Deciding the WC in rapid/blitz, after the players have spent so much time training for a formal match, would be a delicious end. fwiw, it is the best way to break a tie. Most other breakers are much more arbitrary, and simply letting the reigning champ keep the title would ...

MarbleSkull: I usually get Tuesdays. The comments made me feel better :)

MarbleSkull: Thanks for running this, <lostemperor>. Fun as always, see you next candidates. The biggest mistake I made was underestimating Karjakin. He had a great tournament, props to those who predicted it.
   Mar-27-16 Caruana vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
MarbleSkull: sure cowchew:
   Mar-24-16 Anand vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
MarbleSkull: This is likely a draw. -The Berlin has a history of draws. -Anand vs Karjakin has a history of draws. However, -Anand's three wins have come with the white pieces. -He has already cracked one Berlin this tournament. It's also possible that, with the end coming soon ...
   Mar-12-16 Tal vs Petrosian, 1974 (replies)
MarbleSkull: Ah the hater, the internet flame-dispenser that thinks message boards are for them alone. If the effort to skip over a comment you don't like is too troublesome, then perhaps you shouldn't bother to load the page at all. How can someone who doesn't appreciate dedication and ...
   Mar-09-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
MarbleSkull: Anand has the most xp qualifying for the WC, and I think he plays his best in such events. Caruana is my second choice.
   Mar-29-14 Kramnik vs Topalov, 2014 (replies)
MarbleSkull: Maxi, I can't speak for Petrosianic, but it reads like he was trying to respond to Marmot's assurances that someone would point out the mistakes.
   Mar-28-14 World Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
MarbleSkull: I wouldn't even fault Anand for taking that early draw with an advantage in that super sharp position. He's got a strong lead, and if the pace continues he has it locked. Increasing the variance of the tournament might lead to a more impressive finish but it also gives those ...
   Nov-22-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
MarbleSkull: Anand was world champion when I first started following competitive chess, and I've enjoyed watching him defend his title over the years. That said, Carlsen has been a good winner, and that's admirable. Can't wait to see what his reign is like.
