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.

   Nov-05-20 Karpov vs Larsen, 1980
 
The Rocket: Lousy game by Karpov.
 
   Oct-28-20 Alireza Firouzja
 
The Rocket: @Chessgames Classical games: Magnus Carlsen beat Alireza Firouzja 3 to 0, with 1 draw is wrong. You are counting one of the armageddon wins as a classical chess game.
 
   Oct-27-20 Garry Kasparov
 
The Rocket: What do you guys think is the worst positional game ever played by Kasparov? I have a clear candidate here: a3?!, d5?!, Nd2? Kasparov vs A Sheransky, 1996
 
   Aug-20-20 Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour Finals (2020) (replies)
 
The Rocket: Carlsen has an edge in raw tactics but seems to plays worse overall in sharp positions, which Nakamura finally figured out. Maybe Alireza helped him to realise this. The days when Carlsen played all positions equally well are over. He is clearly past his prime

The Rocket: <Hmm? Karpov played better chess and more of it in the 70ís. > Certainly not better. Nobody played better than Fischer in the 70s, to this day.
 
   Jun-01-20 French (C10)
 
The Rocket: Wow! Black only wins 17% of the time in the Nc3 lines! I think the French is a very decent, deep strategical opening. And it's actually less drawish than the Caro-kann in the mainlines
 
   May-28-20 Lindores Abbey Rapid Challenge (2020) (replies)
 
The Rocket: Carlsen-Nakamura game 1. Hard to fault Naka in this one. Let's just say that the two bishops undisturbed in open positions simply cover too much ground and that this holds true regardless of the pawn structure. Game 2: Naka played a decent opening but later overextended and at ...
 
   May-27-20 Ruy Lopez, Open (C80)
 
The Rocket: Carlsen tried the Caro-Kann once against Anand in their very first WCH match game, but never again. Carlsen got a bad position that Anand should have played on. Anand tried it several times against Kasparov and lost as well.
