   Mar-30-22 FIDE Grand Prix Leg 3 (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: The Karjakin Cancelling is a natural extension of cancel culture. Correct opinions are mandatory not only on civil issues but also foreign policy and global politics.
   Mar-02-22 Airthings Masters (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: <We're not talking about harmless views on educational politics, tax regulations or health services.> I find the concept that views have to be harmless to be worthy of free speech disturbing. Who is going to be trusted to determine the 'harmlessness' of opinions? This is a ...
   Dec-14-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
kappertjes: Obviously Carlsen can do as he chooses, but I feel that every champion has a sort of moral duty to fight until dethroned. Not for themselves obviously, but so that others may have their heroic moment. A kind of karmic giving back.
   Jul-19-21 G Oparin vs Karjakin, 2021 (replies)
kappertjes: After 25. ... Rad8 it seems unlikely a GM, let alone a 2650 GM, could lose that endgame. However, Karjakin masterfully exploits every little weakness possible and makes it look like the hardest endgame to defend. In sequence Oparin tries to deal with the threat to the e4 pawn ...
   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 ...
   Aug-04-19 Grand Prix Riga (2019) (replies)
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
   Jun-06-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
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 ...
   Feb-05-17 Gibraltar Masters (2017) (replies)
kappertjes: Wow, doesn't this <Richard> come across as the douchiest douche ever.
