   Nov-15-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
laserlight: <DirkMcCallahan: now if Anand won the match in rapids/blitz, it'd be a whole other story.> Maybe not, since Anand was the previous world champion and would be a 2800+ player again after the match in the event of a tie, whereas in the case of Kramnik-Topalov, Topalov had an ...
   Sep-24-14 Bilbao Masters (2014) (replies)
laserlight: <Big Pawn: If Anand was better than the rest of the pack then he'd beat the rest of the pack.> And that's what he did at the candidates tournament. <Big Pawn: If he beat the rest of the pack his rating would reflect that.> That should hold true in the long run, or if
   Jul-23-14 Yifan Hou vs Giri, 2014 (replies)
laserlight: <1971: Before the bandwagon gets too crowded, I've been calling Yifan Hou one of my favorite players for years (right behind Anand and Carlsen)> I started her Wikipedia page back in 2006 because I was (and still am) a fan of Yifan :p
   Apr-29-14 Gashimov Memorial (2014) (replies)
laserlight: I presume they have agreed to a draw? The chessdom chess arena's timer shows that Radjabov is out of time on move 94, but that seems unlikely since he has an exceedingly obvious move to hold the position.
   Apr-19-14 FIDE Women's Grand Prix Khanty - Mansiysk (2014) (replies)
laserlight: <zakkzheng: Will Girya get a GM norm?> I think not. Her performance rating after 9 rounds is apparently 2598, just 2 points short of a 9 game GM norm. But there are two games to go, and a 10 or 11 game GM norm is still possible. Muminova, on the other hand, seems to have ...
   Mar-30-14 World Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
laserlight: If we use the World Tourism Organization's definition of tourists: "persons traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes", then those who played in this tournament, as well as ...
   Nov-21-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
laserlight: <voyager39: The perfect way forward for Anand would now be to regain the #1 spot in ratings!! I reckon he'd be the oldest to achieve that landmark and it would be the logical high to retire on.> Sounds way too unrealistic to me. A more likely way to leave on a high is to ...
   Sep-09-12 Istanbul Olympiad (2012) (replies)
laserlight: <HeMateMe: When do the games start?> 1100 h in Istanbul, which is about one hour from now, from what I see:
   Jun-11-12 Anand - Gelfand World Championship Match (2012) (replies)
laserlight: <Petrosianic: And besides, he has no claim to the title that he could build a match around, anyway.> True, that thankfully is an advantage that Kasparov had that he doesn't have should he truly have nefarious breakaway dreams (though I recall Carlsen wanted a tournament, ...
   May-11-10 Anand - Topalov World Championship Match (2010) (replies)
laserlight: <Philidor: Topalov said that Anand is the greatest talent in chess history. What's your comment on that?> He had nothing to lose by flattering his opponent. Losing to the "greatest talent in chess history" is far better than losing to a patzer, and if he had won...
