   Dec-07-19 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2019) (replies)
csmath: 14 of those advantage points came out of one match in St Louis 2017 between the two. After that, they are playing rather even chess. So ... yup I would not put too much stock on those numbers. It is obvious that Ding has become quite a beast in both rapid and blitz since than. I ...
   Nov-26-19 GCT Kolkata Rapid & Blitz (2019) (replies)
csmath: Carlsen 27 Nakamura 23 27 is a record for GCT, I think, half a point more than what Magnus did in Africa. Both Naka and Magnus have blitz 12.

csmath: Persian mathematicians and astronomers were to be credited why we are an advanced western civilization now. Without them the Greek mathematics would have faded away and Indian mathematics would not be known to the West. Not to mention Al Kwarezmi, Al Kujandi and many more. Persia was
   Oct-21-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
csmath: <Gotta feel for Levon Aronian not getting that seat in the candidates...> He had a plenty of chances in the new system and earlier and he missed them all so there is nobody to blame. He is just not strong enough. I am always of opinion that if somebody is stronger than ...
   Oct-15-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
csmath: So ... as much as Shirov used to be considered a great endgame player he could not hold this against Magnus. And I knew right from the point when Magnus sacrificed the exchange that he sees the positional win no matter what Shirov does. I mean I trusted Magnus here more than my SF ...
   Oct-06-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
csmath: Can you be attacked by a knife-waving lunatic and killed on the street? Yes, of course. And if you stay in your house you could also be killed by a helicopter slamming into it. But it is more likely you will be writing posts for chessgames debating unlikely events that 4-5 will read ...
   Sep-14-19 Alekhine vs K Junge, 1942 (replies)
csmath: 26. Bxf7 is just for the style, typical Alekhine, it is prettier than 26. Qg5. It is interesting that Alekhine does not comment 25. ...f5? which is an awful mistake opening diagonal for attack on d8.
   Sep-05-19 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
csmath: Nakamura actually won the match despite these hickups. But it would have been better that he lost because in the interview after the match the ugly head of old Nakamura reared out again, the same old arrogant j*** that we all know well from the internet blitz. No change there, it ...
   Sep-05-19 Garry Kasparov (replies)
csmath: Kasparov said that he was retiring because there was nothing else to accomplish. So he is not in for "accomplishments." He is not a kind of guy that has a pleasure playing and losing all the time. Karpov could be such a guy but Kasparov was not the kind of guy that takes losing ...
   Aug-30-19 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
csmath: I was running it for a while and my engine goes half/half, I mean black losses in some games and draws in others. But no win for black with engine. Carlsen would be better advised not to repeat this as it does not look very good for black regardless of the exchange. We'll see if he ...
