   Jul-14-21 Karjakin vs Malinin, 2002
Phi: I think this game is mentioned in a recent NYT article: <Malinin, who had points to spare, agreed to replay his game with Karjakin. He said he did so for free and therefore did not consider it cheating. The two replayed a game that normally ...
   Dec-17-18 Santa Claus (replies)
Phi: Dear Santa, please add me to the prize draw. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!
   Sep-27-17 Carlsen vs Granda Zuniga, 2017 (replies)
Phi: In an interview from Carlsen briefly mentioned that it is a very thematic win as his queen controls all the light squares. It sounded as he didn't think the resignation was premature. But obviously it would be nice to see a line or a plan how this is actually winning.
   Jan-14-17 Tata Steel Challengers (2017) (replies)
Phi: Great start for Ragger, beating the second highest rated player and reaching 2700 again.
   Nov-29-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
Phi: <Allanur> I think this is a great idea. But to make it fair, both players should secretly bid how much time they are willing to have with black. The one with the lower bid reveives the black pieces and his the clock is reduced according to his bid.

Phi: On Friday Ragger was above 2700 on the live list for the first time. Congratulations!

Phi: I found e6/Ne7/Nf5+/Qh4#. So the question is: are there more than 4 solutions?
   Jun-07-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014 (replies)
   Aug-13-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
Phi: Bwin offers 2/5 on Carlsen and 9/5 on Anand. Or 1.40 Carlsen and 2.80 Anand.
