mike1: I second all the above! Hope to see you all healthy and well in another leg in 2021, which should not be as dramatic as this year!

mike1: Should be game of the day! " Hiddden Beauty"

mike1: yes, all very well indeed . But I already know that I would not necessarily wine that endgame after 1) -0.75 (28 ply) 24.h4 ♕f3 25.♖e1+ ♘xe1 26.♕xf3 ♘h3+ 27.♖xh3 ♘xf3+ 28.♔f2 ♘d2 29.g4 ♔f7 30.♗c3 ♘e4+ 31.♔e2

mike1: at 29 Ply SF comes up with a completely different assessment: 1) +4.42 (29 ply) 12.♔f2 ♕b2 13.♗xe7 ♗d4+ 14.♔g3 ♗e5+ 15.♔h4 ♘c6 16.♘xe5 ♘xe5 17.♗b5 ♕d4+ 18.♕xd4 cxd4 19.♗d6 b6 20.♘c7+ ♔d8 ...

mike1: Followed Walter Glattke's lines above, but found out (too late) that black can play 37.f6 instead of taking f4 and it is not as smooth as it looks

mike1: there are still some bets to be placed at the chess bookie's training leg. Help us keep it going!

mike1: Radjabov is one theme; getting home for some of the players is another. But I think that it is not a good thing the the " second" half of a highly " unusual" tournament can be played in ....lets say: November 2020(??!!!?) and start from the current standings.

mike1: best defence is not taking the knight. 28...a3 29. b3 Rxd4 30. Rxd4 exf5 is a hard nut to crack. 31. Rxd5 Bc6 is nearly even according to SF

mike1: you have to take your hat off for Firo not trying to get an easy draw against the Berlin (4.d3). Everything else as said above; but yes, never underestimate a WC
