   Nov-13-19 Navara vs Grischuk, 2019 (replies)
Troller: Players - at least Navara - was in book until around move 16. It seems White was already slightly slipping when he blundered with 22.Qa6, dropping a central pawn. I guess 26.Qf6 is desperation, as 26.Rxh1 Qb6 looks very painful to play.
   Oct-14-19 Jonas Buhl Bjerre (replies)
Troller: Jonas got a wildcard for the IOM FIDE Grand Swiss and entered the tournament as one of the lowest rated with 2506. After 4 rounds he has a performance rating of 2757 - but Black against Wesley So in rd 5 is tougher test than his previous games.
   Oct-09-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
Troller: <Wild card will go to a Russian. At the moment only one (Grischuk) looks like getting there on qualification. Nepo has been mentioned but maybe, just maybe they might give it to Vladislav Artemiev for the experince with an eye on the 2022 W.C. match.> Artemiev is not eligible;
   Aug-06-19 D Howell vs Adams, 2019 (replies)
Troller: Howell was down to 15 minutes for some reason. Also, I believe that they were tied in the standings after rd 7, only Adams managed to win both of his last two games.
   Aug-06-19 Belt and Road Hunan Open (2019) (replies)
Troller: Yes, congrats to Ganguly. You need a little luck sometimes but you also have to spot and take the opportunities, and he did that well. Naiditsch lost also last round and is dropping 18.4 rating points. In December he was 2736, now he is 2656...
   Aug-06-19 Baadur Aleksandrovich Jobava
Troller: <alexmagnus: Just noticed that as well - saw him on CB with 2584 and wondered if there was another Jobava. But I do not know of an explanation.
   Jun-20-19 Asian Continental (2019) (replies)
Troller: <Imran Iskandar> Thank you! That is really an amazing game. Checking the clocks on chessbomb it even seems it was OTB inspiration by Black.
   Jun-04-19 Pia Cramling
Troller: And now she won in Halmstad, a full point clear of Jobava:
   May-14-19 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
Troller: Good for Chucky, even if his loss in the penultimate round made me somewhat nervous. On the subject of high-rated non-titled players, I believe Kamsky cracked the top-10 without even being IM. He benefited a lot from rating bonuses but even then, he did well in his first top event ...
   May-07-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Troller: <KnightVBishop: there is someone going around saying Emory Tate might not of been an overall as strong a player as Magnus but was better in tactics than Magnus> Give it a rest, we all know who the "someone" is: Magnus Carlsen
