   Jul-05-22 Ding Liren vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
PawnSac: yes it is sad, although the general consensus seems to be that Ding is the best all around match-up for Magnus. I was cheering for Naka, but if Ding gets matched with Nepo and wins, we may have a new champ vs Mag that is.. assuming Mag won't defend, and then wants to step in later ...
   Jul-03-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
PawnSac: < Free Speech: So is the candidates over? Is Nepo now the challenger for the WCC? > he needs another 1/2 point to be uncatchable. It's hypothetically possible he loses the 2 remaining games and Ding or Naka win 2 more, then be tied for 1st and go to the rapid playoff. Either ...
   Jun-29-22 M Palac vs Minasian, 1997
PawnSac: After taking a better look at this opening, I see why they call it the "rat" defense. It's borderline garbage. I'm surprised black, being such a strong player, chose a line like this. Worse, he played a lot of inferior moves, like 9. ..Nc4?! He invests 3 tempi only to trade it off ...
   Jun-27-22 Nakamura vs A Skripchenko, 2008
PawnSac: < THE pawn: 34.Rxf6! is actually winning > Yes, but so is 34.Qc6, and that's the idea he saw first. In rapid or blitz, we rarely look for a better move when the one in mind clearly wins.
   Jun-27-22 Caruana vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
PawnSac: < 11.Nh4 > Hess "This feels like a novelty, we'll get verification on that..." Rensch.. "We're getting confirmation in real time.. It may as well be a novelty; very few games in the database, so.. ; The last time Caruana played this position he played Nc3" It clearly has ...
   Jun-26-22 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2022 (replies)
PawnSac: Saffuna: yes it was a monumental win. Impressive win AND defense.
   Jun-25-22 Keene vs R G Wade, 1965 (replies)
PawnSac: < goodevans: The pun ..isn't particularly clever... > Some are clever, some silly, some stupid, but so what? It's difficult to continually find new associations from which to create word play. < ..and its timing is in extremely poor taste given the divisive nature of ...
   Jun-20-22 B Finegold vs D Moody, 1981 (replies)
PawnSac: < One could submit that game as "Cracked Korn" - except that the game is too short to meet's criteria for submission. > So I suppose CG's attitude is.. "Ludwig cracked Korn and we don't care!" ?
   Jun-18-22 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
PawnSac: < Z free or die: this level is way beyond me. > It's way beyond 95%, so bro, I feel your pain. BUT.. players [especially 2000-2400] should find Giri's recaps helpful to clarify relevant positional ideas, or confirm correct instincts without the painstaking effort required to ...
   Jun-18-22 Vivek Rao (replies)
PawnSac: Here's something I find interesting: < Overall record: +5 -16 =6 (29.6%) > ok let's round it off to 30% so.. The cg database gives Vivic a 30% win ratio, but look at his opponents! A world champion, at least 6 US open champs, and many other strong players.. Kasparov, ...
