   Nov-06-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Reisswolf: I cannot remember being in such a state of eager anticipation before any world championship match, except perhaps the Capablanca-Alekhine match.
   Oct-21-18 Sasikiran vs Anand, 2002 (replies)
Reisswolf: How does white stop the barrage of checks?
   Jul-27-18 Biel (2018) (replies)
Reisswolf: <chessgames>: just out of sheer curiosity, what causes the list of a player's games in a tournament never to appear in chronological order?
   Jul-24-18 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
Reisswolf: Is anyone else concerned that Caruana's heavy defeat against Aronian in the Speed Chess Championship match today, together with his performances in the Grand Chess Tour, portend ill in the world championship match?
   Jun-20-18 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2018) (replies)
Reisswolf: Is Caruana doing himself a disservice by playing these tournaments and not doing well? How does it affect his confidence heading into the world championship match?
   Jun-15-18 Nakamura vs Anand, 2018
Reisswolf: Nakamura has not been in good form of late. This game is another illustration of that fact.
   May-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Reisswolf: As a child I was always admonished not to say anything unless I had something nice to say. That is why I am refraining from addressing the quality of the live commentary.
   May-26-18 J Jackson vs G Jones, 2016 (replies)
Reisswolf: As Gawain Jones demonstrates aptly here, sometimes it is better to give away a bishop than to accept one as a gift from the opponent.
   Apr-26-18 K Grigoryan vs T L Petrosian, 2017 (replies)
Reisswolf: I don't think it was a good puzzle. I got the general idea, but I feel that a good puzzle should have a more forcing continuation.
   Apr-18-18 Svidler vs Kramnik, 1999 (replies)
Reisswolf: I got this quite easily. Does this mean I am almost as strong as Svidler now?
