   Nov-10-19 GCT Bucharest Rapid & Blitz (2019) (replies)
halito27: Woo hoo! Le Quang Liem! I live in Vietnam and he's a national hero here; everyone knows him. So good for chess!
   Nov-03-19 I Miladinovic vs A Istratescu, 1996 (replies)
halito27: A lesson in how to achieve a sustained initiative and what to do with it. Nice game.
   Oct-03-19 Jonathan Speelman
halito27: Haha, I love these. Thanks to you both for a good chuckle.
   Sep-16-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
halito27: Kind of fun: I live in Hanoi, Vietnam and Le Quang Liem is making the news! There was a little "Breaking News" scroll across the bottom of the screen during a football (soccer) match when he bested Korobov to move into the third round. Nice to live in a country where this matters.

halito27: FWIW, I respect all these players, but my favorite in *this* tournament was Nepo. Not always the best, but he tried to unbalance every game and played to win. I love his attitude and hope he continues to play in the upper echelons for years to come.
   Aug-31-19 G Kacheishvili vs Sakaev, 2001 (replies)
halito27: One of those games that makes you appreciate not just the logic of chess, but the creativity.
   Aug-12-19 de Firmian vs Casper Rasmussen, 2006 (replies)
halito27: <Count Wedgemore: Poor Casper. The memory of this loss must haunt him.> <thegoodanarchist: Indeed, his play was not spirited.> With one mistake after another, it was just a wraith to the bottom.
   Aug-12-19 Tiviakov vs T Roussel-Roozmon, 2009 (replies)
halito27: Tiviakov must have seen the sequence when he played 22. b3. Even if white doesn't take the poisoned pawn on c3, it still leads to a nice bishop outpost after 22... cxb3 23. Bxb3 Nc5 24. Nd5 Nxd5 25. Bxd5. One can certainly understand black falling for temptation, but the position's
   May-26-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
halito27: <SCUBA diver> The rules are explained above but it is a bit confusing. It's because the first two games are classical chess; if there's a clear winner after those games, there's no need to move onto the rapid, blitz, or Armageddon rounds. Some players managed to beat their ...
   Apr-30-19 GRENKE Chess Classic (2019) (replies)
halito27: After winning Gashimov by two games, it's clear that Carlsen is getting weaker: he only won Grenke by a game and a half.
