   Pyrrhus has kibitzed 175 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-19-09 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Pyrrhus: I singled Aronian out largely because of the fact that Carlsen and Aronian are apart in age -- historically the dominant positional player of an era is older than the dominant tactical player. Much of what I find fascinating has to do with these historical patterns, and if it holds ...
   Feb-28-09 Grischuk vs Dominguez Perez, 2009 (replies)
Pyrrhus: The position isn't close to being exhausted yet. It would be a little disappointing to see a draw here.
   Feb-26-09 Topalov vs Kamsky, 2009 (replies)
Pyrrhus: Mack, as long as the Kid isn't planning to burn it down, and Holden isn't planning to shoot it up, cheers.

Pyrrhus: Blacksburg, I think you came closer as you progressed in your post. Euwe is trying to tell us that the point of playing a game of chess is not to win but to improve and to create. If we see chess as a science instead of an art, look for precision instead of ideas, then we will never

Pyrrhus: Thank you again for the insight Short. I'll see all of you tomorrow.
   Feb-23-09 Ilia Kan (replies)
Pyrrhus: Akiba, the Kan Sicilian is not the same as the Paulsen variation. In the Paulsen variation a6 or Qc7 is played after Nc6, in the Kan a6 is played prior to Nc6. Though transpositions are not infrequent it is also not uncommon for the Kan player not to play Nc6 at all. Often the Kan ...

Pyrrhus: Shall we all sing? I think this is a singing occasion. I could rattle off some poetry perhaps, and buy us all a round.
   Feb-20-09 Anand vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
Pyrrhus: Thanks to the Chessgames staff for bringing us this game. I'll see all of you tomorrow.

Pyrrhus: Excellent. On to Linares.
