The Rocket: This boy might be the next world champion. I was totally wrong about Giri, though, so who knows. Alizera impressed me greatly, even in bullet chess. He is a force to be reckon with. Supreme tactical player with lots of ingenious concepts.
   Dec-10-18 London Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
The Rocket: <I expect great things from Caruana this tourney. No more holding back prep or having to play cautious in match conditions, free to go for it!> You expect great things? You didn't happen to miss his dreadful rapid chess display against Carlsen? This tournament is mainly ...
   Dec-09-18 AlphaZero (Computer) (replies)
The Rocket: <That's simply wrong, because due to how classical chess engines work, knowing when to dig deeper is key (application of selective search). For the AlphaZero approach it's far less relevant.> The nature of the position dictates how Stockfish divides its time management, not
   Dec-06-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
The Rocket: <I think after his loss in the first tiebreak game that Caruana thought he had to win game two, rather than thinking he had three chances to get even. And he pushed too hard, lost, and then repeated it in the third game.> It's not so much that he pursued game two in a ...

The Rocket: I guess Bronstein is in that list too. He's an equally creative player, at the very least.

The Rocket: Bronstein reportedly said that Nez was "a fantastic mathematican". What did he base this on? Math at the higher levels have very little to do with brute force calculations, and is more about deeper understanding.
   Dec-01-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
The Rocket: Terrible game by Spassky. He was clearly psyched out in this match. The Nd2 setup in is innoccous, and white proceeds to not accomplish much except weaken his position move by move, while black gains more and more territory (and material). One of the great aggressive, attacking ...
   Mar-18-18 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
The Rocket: <In the press conference, it was clear that Caruana was fresher and that his appreciation of some key positions during the game was superior.< It was certainly not reflected in his play. Caruana made more severe inaccuracies and at one point appeared clueless how to ...
   Mar-15-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
The Rocket: Perhaps New In Chess should have waited more than 3 rounds to put Kramnik on the cover....
