   Nov-02-19 Wesley So (replies)
 
drnooo: May as well say it too: I was ready to finally cave (unless Carlsen was just plain ill) and name him a true champ, since his last three matches proved nada in classical: only blitz. But random chess showed just how reliant he is in prep and memorization. Random is pure intuition and ...
 
   Oct-07-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
 
drnooo: Plenty have beaten Carlsen in a WCC match. Just not the lunatic tie brakes. They need either long matches, or just declare them co champions going in. Thats all. If you can't beat the guy challenging you in any particular format then why pretend you did. Ever since he drew with all ...
 
   Jun-05-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
 
drnooo: Its all hoked up chess. Anyone who follows this are fools. I lost interest in these circus games long ago, including the so called championship matches. And so has most of the world. Carlsen one of these days will have to prove that he can beat the likes of Caruana or Karjaken or ...
 
   May-01-19 Paul Keres (replies)
 
drnooo: I have posted this before. But here we go again. Keres came very close to being killed by the soviets. He was trying to escape and about to make the boat out with his wife and on the last day didn't make it. Ever after he knew his rung at the top was not welcome. I maintain the ...
 
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
drnooo: What a joke the world champion is. Whoever sponsors the next carnival like this should have deep psychiatric care.
 
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
drnooo: This is an easy problem. If you want to settle something by a rapids, then do it for a large share of the money. But as for the classical do this. If drawn then both are declared co champions for a year, not two and they both have to meet in the next yearly cycle of candidates. ...
 
   Oct-26-18 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
drnooo: A greater player AND chess talent likely was the most forgotten. Harry Nelson Pillsbury. Considering that he basically played the game as a hobby compared to Fischer's obsession, and what he did in tournaments, eclipses anyone in the history of chess. Had he not been so persistently ...
 
   Aug-29-18 Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
 
drnooo: The great players never had much trouble in draws. Notice all the greats were at the 65 percent level and the truly greats were in the 70 per cents. Capa, Alekhine, Fisher, Keres 70 percenters.
 
   Apr-15-18 Najdorf vs Gliksberg, 1929 (replies)
 
drnooo: I seem to be one of the few here who always looks first at the percentage wins as the best gauge of playing strength. The immortals and near greats are without exception in the 65 percent and above. Its the truest test of how he played against the field during his career. Najdorf ...
 
   Sep-17-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
 
drnooo: What a pack of nonsense, all this babble about world champions. You don't decide that after ten games and some rapids. That's insanity, not chess. In a twenty game match...if drawn..what's wrong with simply saying, no champion. Period. Or if they are serious and both want to, let ...
