bravado1: These remarks about "My System" are to say the least unfair. I'm not an expert on chess hisrory, but I think that the work by Nimzowitsch was breakthrough and revolutionary not because of the analyses of specific positions - here obviously Nimzo made mistakes - but in the general ...
   Dec-20-13 Aronian vs Mamedyarov, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: All those "brilliant" players who like complex, unstable, difficult to evaluate positions seem to struggle in the long run. Aronian like Topalov and in part Morozevich represent this style, although in my view Aronian is the most talented of them. The main problem appears to be ...
   Nov-12-13 Carlsen vs Anand, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: They should switch off computer analysis. It's slightly embarrssing that two best players on earth make so many inaccurate moves. Obviously, otherwise I wouldn't be aware of that. In this game, at some point Anand was close to a winning position, then he slipped his chance and ...

bravado1: His name sounds German
   Oct-03-13 Caruana vs Tomashevsky, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: Had Morozevich played instead of Tomashevsky - both players of similiar strength, his result would have probably been 3-3-4. The same score, but different type of games. I'm surprised by Tomashevsky's cautious strategy. He has a chance to demonstrate his ablities in a top ...
   Sep-18-13 A Ushenina vs Y Hou, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: If someone loses so many games with white, it means that they didn't do their homework. In this case, the opening preparation.
   Aug-27-13 Kramnik vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: Kramnik should work on his endgames. For at least the second time in this tournament, he shows his inability to convert a winning position into a full point (previousely vs. Korobov). If back then the blame could be put on tension, tiredness, etc., here he demonstrates that it was ...
   Jun-20-13 M Bier vs S Ricardo-Rocamora, 1876 (replies)
bravado1: Is this really a combination? At least on the 17th move? White does not sacrifice anything, but only forces the exchange of queens. I didn't solve this "puzzle" because I was looking for sacrifices, e.g. knight h7 or f7.
   May-16-13 Simen Agdestein (replies)
bravado1: The other "official" reasons behind Anand's reaction might be: 1. The interview was already finished. They thanked Vishy and he was about to leave. Then, Simen asked him one more question, which Anand kindly answered. But the following question about the differences in approach ...
   Apr-01-13 Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2013 (replies)
bravado1: Why did he go for the Pirc in the last round? Kramnik almost never plays this opening and I think he's never played it after d4. Why to risk from a start? It is like giving odds to your opponent and hoping that he will blunder in an unfamiliar position. This reminds me of the ...
