   Jan-14-20 Tata Steel Masters (2020) (replies)
starry2013: I liked the time control they did at St Louis - which was one large lump of time for the whole game and no increment. That forced people to plan out their whole game, rather than suddenly being given an extra 50 minutes at move 40.
   Jan-12-20 Dimitrios Ladopoulos
starry2013: Beat Robson on most rounds in the final of puzzle rush, but didn't have enough of a lead so after leading the whole of the final he was overtaken on the very last round by 2. Must have been a real heartbreaker.

starry2013: GM Anton Guijarro, David ESP 2694 GM Grandelius, Nils SWE 2673 GM Mamedov, Rauf AZE 2659 GM Eljanov, Pavel UKR 2650 GM Ganguly, Surya Shekhar IND 2636 GM Abdusattorov, Nodirbek UZB 2635 GM Nihal Sarin IND 2618 GM L'Ami, Erwin NED 2606 GM Smirnov, Anton AUS 2604 ...

starry2013: I remember reading that they do normally use the full name. So calling him Ding is a bit strange, and in Western terms even stranger, when they speak to Carlsen they don't tend to call him 'Carlsen'.
   Nov-09-19 Wesley So (replies)
starry2013: I wish Aronian had taken part in the chess960 as he is one of the better players at it, but I'm glad attempts are being made to make it a serious and official competition.
   Nov-06-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
starry2013: Opening theory may be considered a major part of the game but the reality is it's something totally alien to most of the audience. The natural skill element of chess can sometimes be superceded now by years of experience. Maybe if more of a balance between the two, and computers ...
   Oct-12-19 A Sarana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
starry2013: It's not always easy in the computer age when you against prep as black, Carlsen needs to take risks to win in some circumstances but it can be too dangerous. It's remarkable he has the rating he has considering the impact of computers.
   Oct-09-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
starry2013: I don't mind a reasonable rapid time control for tiebreaks, but not blitz.
   Oct-08-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
starry2013: When was the last non-Russian player a wildcard?
   Sep-04-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
starry2013: Kasparov is just too slow now. But what puzzles me is why Sinquefield thought that the match format was worth redoing, he should just admit he was wrong and have everyone play each other. Just like last year you find a lot of lopsided matches.
