   May-05-19 Grand Chess Tour Cote díIvoire (Rapid & Blitz) (2019) (replies)
 
denopac: <incommensurable> Well done <Sokrates>.
 
   Apr-22-19 GRENKE Chess Classic (2019) (replies)
 
denopac: I think Carlsen's wins are fantastic, in every sense of the word. I myself have won plenty of games by pointing all my pieces at the king and sac, sac, mate, but I've never once won a game even remotely resembling F Vallejo Pons vs Carlsen, 2019
 
   Apr-22-19 Carlsen vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
 
denopac: <<LameJokes: If carlsen wins this, it's going to be 6th win in a row. What is the record for most wins in a row for a super GM?> 20 (Fischer) or 25 (Steinitz), depending on your criteria.> In recent times there's Caruana's 7/7 to start Sinquefield Cup (2014)
 
   Apr-17-19 R Naranja vs Smyslov, 1970 (replies)
 
denopac: This is the game that Andy Soltis is referring to at the start of chapter four of <What It Takes to Become a Chess Master>: <One day, after Naranja had drawn with a Soviet grandmaster who was much stronger than him, Fischer told the Filipino he stood much better when the ...
 
   Mar-29-19 T Gareyev vs Caruana, 2019
 
denopac: Yasser Seirawan made a really interesting point during the live broadcast. It was Gareyev's second time defending this ending in the tournament (the first time was successful) and he clearly knew the technique (the "2nd rank defense"). Yaz said that Caruana's best chance was to ...
 
   Feb-09-19 Cairns Cup (2019) (replies)
 
denopac: <Deadly Nerve Gas> sounds like it could be a punk or post-punk band, in which case there would be no call for the <Count> to apologize. Getting back on topic, Kosteniuk has won two very nice games as black so far, in each case conjuring up a crushing attack almost out of
 
   Jan-26-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
 
denopac: <Is this Giri's best tournament in elite category?> As of right now, after round 12, with Carlsen on +5 and Giri on +4, this bears a striking resemblance to Tata Steel (2015)
 
   Nov-27-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
 
denopac: <He didn't "storm out" he just didn't appear> I was there that day. Magnus did appear for the press conference. Karjakin was detained backstage doing an interview and after a few minutes Magnus lost patience and left the scene, visibly annoyed.
 
   Oct-04-18 Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
 
denopac: <Tiggler> Yeah, I remember someone saying something similar two years ago when I posted re: the S-B numbers at the 2016 Olympiad. Itís my favorite event, although I do wish they would schedule more rounds on weekends (one of eleven is not enough for the working chess fan).
 
   May-01-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
 
denopac: It would normally be the 2019 Zonal results that are used for qualifying for the 2019 World Cup. That's exactly how it worked in 2017 (Zonal 2016 results were not used for qualification purposes for 2017). It is true that some events promote qualifiers over two years, but in the ...
