percyblakeney: I sometimes get the feeling I am writing on the wrong site though, might be time to finally do something about that now :-)
   Feb-25-11 6th FIDE Women Grand Prix (2011) (replies)
percyblakeney: Especially in western countries there are few women with a high rating. Sweden finished best of the Nordic countries in the Olympiad 2010, and the clearly highest rated player in the team was 2161. The second best Nordic country was Denmark, with the top players rated 2157 and

percyblakeney: <Dvoretsky is a pretty strong player.He had a fairly high peak rating of 2540 and that too a long time ago.Must have been good enough to be in the top 100.> Top 20 at his peak, as Dorfman, according to Chessmetrics. In the Soviet Championship 1974 Dvoretsky was one point

percyblakeney: <I'd definitely take Tal over Petrosjan 58-59 fwiw> Me too. Even if I agree with most things in <Everett>'s list it's harsh on Tal to place Petrosian ahead of him in 1958-59. Tal won the Candidates in 1959 with +12 (Petrosian +3), and the Interzonal the year before
   Feb-03-11 Gibraltar Masters (2011) (replies)
percyblakeney: Impressive by Ivanchuk, 9/10 against rather strong opposition. His highest rated opponents were 2721, 2658, 2655, 2649, 2599 and 2593, and he won against all of them.

percyblakeney: The only prospect for a World Champion from the west right now has to be Kamsky :-)

   Jan-31-11 Tata Steel Group A (2011) (replies)
percyblakeney: Apart from everything else the World Cup 2007 had only one player ranked in the top six, Ivanchuk, who lost a rapid tiebreak against Nisipeanu. There's of course Fine's AVRO 1938 even if Keres was the tiebreak winner, but nowadays such results are usually counted as shared ...
   Jan-29-11 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
percyblakeney: Blackburne won against Chessmetrics #5 and drew #1 and #4 in his 73rd year, in S:t Petersburg 1914. He was ranked #21 in the world by Chessmetrics when he was 74 years old, but it's hard to compare 1910s and 2010s.
   Jan-28-11 Nepomniachtchi vs Nakamura, 2011 (replies)
percyblakeney: <For Korchnoi, the first question is when was the last time he *played* someone older. =)> Has to be that game against Maroczy.
