Used to be at this forum for many years and under different nicks. When I lose the password, or just banned:) - don't remember exactly. I change the nick. I have three main passions: history, math and chess. I am a professor of applied math, do behavioral stuff, statistics, optimization, game theory and mechanism design, abstract algebra - Jordan and alternative algebras, and some other things. Sometimes I am good, but mostly, just a mediocre chess player. Like Naka's streams, Rosen's humility, even Short's humor and bravery, Giri's sarcasm - remind me myself 30 years ago:), Hansen's tilting... not a big fan of Magnus - used to be...

SometimesGood: <JustAnotherMaster: You want masks wait for Halloween...or go sponsor your own tournament...never seen someone who whines so much......> I think Alireza and Fabi are with you, at least judging by their post-game interviews. I guess young people are tired of zooming.

SometimesGood: <Doktorn: Super fun event! I hope we will see more of chess960 in the future. I love it when the players has to start thinking and evaluating the position from move one.> It is interesting that the best in normal chess are the best in 960.

SometimesGood: Good show by Naka as well. I am sure he is not entirely unhappy beating Magnus for the first time. I even started to think that he could be a potential runner up for the world championship, should he gather a team around him. Fighting Magnus and Dubov with their teams should ...

   Jan-09-20 Ju - Goryachkina Women's World Championship Match (2020) (replies)
SometimesGood: There were some intricacies, to the otherwise lost position, which were new to me. Sasha tried to trick Ju and it could work. But in the final position white queens with check and I guess this is the main point. Maybe whites win anyway but Nigel showed some tricks. Thanks, ...

SometimesGood: I do agree with you de jure, but de facto I think ethnicity and race matter:). Tal and Botvinnik were Jews, and Jews are originally from the Middle East. I like your attitude towards integration, I myself is totally for integration, but again, in this world race and ethnicity ...

SometimesGood: <fabelhaft: Could still be a Candidates without Russian participants, with Caruana, Radjabov, Giri, Ding Liren and Wang Hao plus two Grand Prix players (still possible that it will be MVL and Mamedyarov) and then a wild card. But that one may well be Russian.> the only ...

SometimesGood: Watching Navara and Giri analyzing the game in Russian, I realized that these two reflect the broken dreams of the Soviet ideology. In 70s this could be a model image; a brother from Czechoslovakia discussing the game with a son of a Nepali communist living in St. ...
