Jun-01-15  Junbalansag: A wild game where Wesley So elegantly parried relentless attacks from Igarza, who in the end lose his steam. Great game for both Wes and Ren.

  thegoodanarchist: Yes, it was a great game. Cool, calm, and solid defense against an unsound but dangerous attack is a hallmark of very strong players.
Jun-01-15  Pulo y Gata: There's nothing dangerous about the attack started by Bxh2. I don't know about you, but I would have beaten any GM in the position after that unfounded excitement.

If Rainier has studied Wesley's games enough, he would have known that the American is one of the strongest calculators of the engine generation and would have avoided such harakiri. However, maybe he did not want to suffer a gradual tightening squeeze and wanted to lie down in a blaze of gory. I like to think that he chose this latter option.

You have a reputation for preposterous claims. I don't believe a word of your nonsense.

Jun-02-15  Sihlous: So played well but he was never in any danger...The attack was completely unsound and proven quickly.
Jun-02-15  Pulo y Gata: <Jun-02-15 thegoodanarchist: <Pulo y Gata: ... I don't know about you, but I would have beaten any GM in the position after that unfounded excitement> You have a reputation for preposterous claims. I don't believe a word of your nonsense.>

OK now support your preposterous claim that I proffer preposterous claims. Just because you are a fish does not mean others are too.

  perfidious: <Pulo y Gata> That poster is just another 1900-type player who has delusions of godhead, most often expressed with overtones of moral superiority.
Jun-02-15  Pulo y Gata: <perfidious> I wonder why he would say that about me, funny guy.

Hope you are having great time most times.

  perfidious: <Pulo y Gata> No accounting for some folks.
Jun-02-15  JohnDMaster: That was a very amazing game, as a master I do not believe I could have beaten any GM after the sacrifice on h2, I believe Wesley is just an amazing calculator and posed a very similar defense Capa did against Marshall, just a well played game.
Jun-02-15  Sihlous: As long as white finds 20.Ne4 I would favor a master over a GM. Black was never close to anything at all...Bxh2 was straight horrible and has no merit in that position.
Jun-04-15  BeerBrand: 25.Be6+! is sweet, it is untouchable because of 26.Qc8+ wins the Re6, even after 26... ♔f7 27.♕d7+ ♖e7 28.♕xe7+ ♔xe7 29.♗g5+ (ΔRxg1 recovering the Q)

I made no such claim. I merely stated your reputation.
