   Sep-30-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
 
The Rocket: <Not totally baseless, but mostly. Topalov at least gave SOME reasons> I remember Short winning against Kramnik in a big tournament (Maybe the London one) where from a losing position Kramnik played only moves all the way until Short faulted and the game concluded in a ...

The Rocket: h3 is a silly move since white wants black to misplace his bishop on g6, or trade it for a knight. All h3 does is give black a target. That's not why he lost but it offers practical play for black.
 
   Jul-04-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
 
The Rocket: I think it's fair to say that Nepomniatchi is the crown prince of tactics. The man doesn't miss a beat. He does in that sense deserve to face Magnus Carlsen. Nakamura is an interesting player. Very deep search. Not the best tactician, but not bad... Positional understanding is ...
 
   Dec-07-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
 
The Rocket: Is alcohol banned? Cause if it is, they should have checked Nepo.. He played like one yesterday. Classic Nepo collapse.

The Rocket: You are clearly a sick person conjuring up self-induced conflicts with someone you don't know.

The Rocket: It's interesting glossing over Fischers candidate run in 71, how similar his style of play with the white pieces is at this point to a prime Capablanca. Fischer exhibits a clear preference towards simplifications into slight middle game advantages. He did this time and time again
 
   Oct-25-21 Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013
 
The Rocket: <With good reason. It would mean that he wasn't even trying to win the tournament> Kramnik could have played for a win in a less forcing manner,to wait out Svidler first, rather than play the commital e5 so early, which is a bad move since it actually kills all chances for ...

The Rocket: Weakest World Champion, but sharp tactician.

The Rocket: Ones understanding of chess aid in determining whether a risky move is justifiable or not. Which is why Kasparov played very risky yet only lost once or twice a year on average.
