   Oct-05-18 G Mammadova vs L Krumina, 2018
Chuckles: White to play: 48.? Good puzzle!
   Oct-05-18 Batumi Olympiad (2018) (replies)
Chuckles: <devere: perhaps the tie break system needs to be tweaked.> Perhaps the simplest change is to not count the last round in the "opponents points" part of the tiebreak calculation. This way, results on the lower boards in the last round don't affect the top team tiebreaks. The ...
   Oct-05-18 K Balajayeva vs A M Sargsyan, 2018
Chuckles: Wow, brutal shock for black to allow this draw. Maybe the draw was even available a move earlier with 60.Qg7+?
   Sep-19-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Chuckles: <Tiggler> <If So loses he can do the same unless So plays in the Isle of Man.> If So loses tomorrow, his rating goes to 2783. If he then doesn't play for the rest of the year, the total of his 12 monthly ratings is <33662>. Average: 2805.17. If Kramnik doesn't ...
   Aug-16-17 Aronian vs Kasparov, 2017
Chuckles: There is an interesting possibility if Garry plays 42...Kg4 at the end. White has to take the pawn, but then the knight is trapped on h7. It seems that the best play then is: 43. Nxh7 b5 44. Kd5 a5 45. Kd6 b4 46. axb4 a4! (if axb4, white can take the knight and get back to ...
   Jul-18-17 Rybka vs Nakamura, 2008 (replies)
Chuckles: I don't really understand calling this a bug in Rybka. Draws are evaluated at 0.00, so if it evaluates avoiding the draw at any positive score, it will avoid the draw. What else should it do? I guess you could program it to always allow 50-move draws, on the basis that if there's ...
   Sep-13-16 Baku Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Chuckles: Making head-to-head the first tiebreaker overvalues a single match in the tournament, but I can see why some people prefer it. The change I'd like to see is that the last round shouldn't count in the "opposition match points" part of the tiebreaker calculation. That way, all the ...
   Apr-20-16 US Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
Chuckles: And they went for it!
   Apr-06-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
Chuckles: So Karjakin has dropped out of the Norway tournament to focus on the match instead.
   Mar-27-16 Topalov vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
Chuckles: After 34...Rxe4 white can play Ra8+ and Ra7 and the double attack on the g7 pawn will let him make a draw.
