   Nov-28-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Have they started the rapids already? Very fast playing.
 
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Interesting to hear in the press conference did Karjakin really not see the forced draw on move 20. or if he saw it, why he didn't play it.
 
   Nov-23-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
VargPOD: How much compensation black has for the pawn? White has doubled pawns, but also a bishop pair. Looks better for white in my patzer eyes.
 
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Could it be that Karjakin has better stamina than Carlsen? Magnus has looked rather exhausted in press conferences.
 
   Nov-14-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
VargPOD: According to Svidler and Hansen, 70...Rc3 would have been a draw, now it looks good for white.
 
   Nov-17-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Anand is still solid, but commentators are starting to lose it. "We will be in here forever! etc." after Nf2.
 
   Nov-15-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
 
VargPOD: The press conference was awful. Every question was about the blunder, and they just kept repeating the same questions about how Magnus felt after making the blunder and how Vishy felt after missing the right response. I would have liked to hear Anand's opinion about opening choice. ...
 
   Mar-23-14 Anand vs Topalov, 2014 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Aronian just lost and Kramnik is losing so if Vishy does convert this he is very strong favourite to win the candidates.
 
   Mar-21-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
 
VargPOD: Mamedyarov just blundered hard! Kramnik is winning!
 
   Nov-19-13 Carlsen vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
 
VargPOD: Where's the Anand from the Kramnik match that defeated Kramnik using sharp openings and brutal tactical calculation?
