   Sep-20-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
kappertjes: <which to me shows what a farce the ratings system is.> Any suggestions for improvement? Surely you have something to add if the current system is an actual <farce>. Perhaps instead you would prefer to be consulted so you can confirm if the relative placement of ...

kappertjes: So if we don't want to reward early vs late or vice versa and we want reward the consistently best player over the period of interest (so preferably not using their rating at the beginning), it seems to me a TPR for each player could work. Use the rating for the opponents as they

kappertjes: I feel that the armageddon games should not count towards the tournament victory since they are somewhat silly. The problem is that their very presence affects the classical games, so you also can't just use classical score. Also, I think armageddon games should be done with a ...
   Jan-25-19 Tata Steel Masters (2019) (replies)
kappertjes: <<Aylerkupp>Of course fair is relative. But just because someone had to overcome an unfair disadvantage at an earlier point in time doesn't mean that they are entitled to the same advantage just become they were able to overcome it once.> You call the ‘advantage’ ...

kappertjes: <Shams: A few old white men are clutching their pearls. The world still turns. > I love how the <old white men> bit is thrown in to devalue any feelings or grievances these people might have. Which don't you like Shams, old people, white people or men? Or is it the ...

kappertjes: Wow, doesn't this <Richard> come across as the douchiest douche ever.

kappertjes: I don't like the Wimbledon comparison mainly because I don't care for tennis and would rate Wijk higher than Wimbledon. <with a complete database, including all games and information about every player who has participated at Beverwijk and Wijk aan Zee in the past eight ...
   Sep-12-16 Carlsen vs E Ghaem Maghami, 2016 (replies)
kappertjes: <keypusher> Thanks, that was really good. There does seem to be a similar theme. Apparently there is "discussion" about exactly this type of exchange. Is the knight on its lovely square worth more than the bishop hitting its pawns, or not? You live you learn, I guess I ...
   Sep-06-16 Baku Olympiad (2016) (replies)
kappertjes: <1688 was just a little english war of succession in which a dutch pretender, protestant, was preferred over a french pretender, catholic. Do you notice how successful domestic spats are glorious revolutions, but failed ones are civil wars?> Nonsense, the whole glorious ...
   Jun-12-16 Grand Chess Tour Paris Rapid (2016) (replies)
kappertjes: <Now 2896 elo vs. 2930 elo a gap of 1.1%> I don't care about this argument you guys are having, but talking about elo-differences in terms of percentages of the actual rating is very... creative.
