Riverbeast: <HeHateMe> Dick Schaap also said Fischer "didn't have a sane bone in his body" in a public, printed article...But you left out that part of the story, didn't you? Of course you did. Because you're not here to tell the full story or the truth. You're not here to enlighten ...
   Dec-04-18 M Reverby vs R Saptarshi, 2011
Riverbeast: Correction to that last post: Best is 13. Bb2 Rd2 14. Rf2 Rhd8 15, Bc3 immediately (I don't know why I threw 15. Raf1 in first. That move is completely unnecessary) Whether black exchanges rooks or retreats, white will eventually oppose both rooks on d1, and trade both pairs - ...
   Oct-05-18 Batumi Olympiad (2018) (replies)
Riverbeast: <<It helps teams who played weaker opponents and racked up big scores>> Any team in contention for medals probably racked up big scores against weaker opponents. They probably won their first and second round match (possibly third round as well) by 4-0 or 3.5-.5 ...

Riverbeast: Happy Birthday Nick! This is also the birthday of filmmaker/chessplayer Stanley Kubrick. Today would have been his 90th
   Mar-05-17 Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2017) (replies)
Riverbeast: <Hou GOT her title in a mini match knockout format in first place> And she defended her title in matches...the only way it should be done....Just like in the men's ('Open') WC Just because Hou won the title in a flawed format, doesn't mean it should be retained...An ...
   Feb-26-17 FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) (replies)
Riverbeast: Yeah but my point is a very good chess game was played this round, and all you people talk about are the draws Draws (particularly short, unplayed draws) have always been a part of chess...and always will be, until they bring back the football scoring So either lobby for a 3-1-0 ...
   Feb-23-17 Gibraltar Masters (2017) (replies)
Riverbeast: <In fact it so happened that Ljubo himself played a countryman in the last round, but they had the same score. A bloodthirsty draw: Damljanovic vs Ljubojevic, 1990 eliminating them both. Either one would have qualified with a win. Now why wasn't there a late blunder?> ...
   Feb-04-17 Fridman vs A Zatonskih, 2017 (replies)
Riverbeast: I agree with Jovana Houska in her comments to this game...This was another ridiculous pairing, and it puts Fridman in a very uncomfortable position...If he plays with integrity and draws or beats his wife, he costs her (and their family) a sizable amount of money Such a pairing ...
   Feb-02-17 Y Hou vs B Lalith, 2017 (replies)
Riverbeast: As an addendum to that last story, my friend and I also protested when we were paired in the last round of a large European swiss...our scores were a half point apart, we were both competing for a prize, and there was a clear (to us) anti-American conspiracy afoot So neither one ...
   Jan-31-17 B Ider vs Y Hou, 2017 (replies)
Riverbeast: To me this game has conceptual similarities to the Caruana-Nakamura brilliancy in the recent London Chess Classic: Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 In both games the Queen is sacrificed for two pieces -Bishop & Knight - and long term positional compensation...And in both cases the long ...
