   Jan-20-15 Tata Steel Masters (2015) (replies)
dycotiles: Carlsen is about to win again. Radja just blundered!
   Jun-05-14 Norway Chess (2014) (replies)
dycotiles: And maybe Carlsen is gonna get away with it ...

dycotiles: Man you have to give it to Carlsen, he just keeps going on and on and on and on when others may have just been happy with a draw long ago ...

dycotiles: It's official 0-1!

dycotiles: <The Rocket: <"Shirov seems to be out of Carlsen league now."> Not quite.... he indirectly declined a draw by playing the move a4. Carlsen would be forced to accept a draw with other solid moves like qh5 since white is slightly better.> Shirov is rated about 100 points

dycotiles: <MWYOUNG> Well, the idea of the new scoring system is to encourage players to play for wins. There have been 12 decisive games out of 20 so far, that's 60% which is very good. With the old scoring system we problably wouldn't be seeing such an exciting tournament!
   Oct-09-10 Grand Slam Chess Final (2010) (replies)
dycotiles: <Mr. Bojangles> Kasparov blundered and lost. The game was exciting because of all the tactics involved, and it won the most interesting game prize from the journalists. However, it was not a brilliancy prize, just a prize awarded subjectively by the journalists to the game ...
