   Aug-07-17 So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
arnaud1959: <SS : Back on move 19 Wes may have missed the 10th move 23...Qe2>. Qe2 is a very natural counter attacking move. I think he has rather missed 25...Rb1 which is unnatural. It gives up an active rook on the second rank which puts pressure on f2 and a2. I would call this "the ...
   Aug-04-17 Vachier-Lagrave vs So, 2017 (replies)
arnaud1959: <Sir Ruthless : Carlsen refuses to talk to foreign press after losses while Wesley does interviews after both wins and losses with foreign and domestic press.> I would call this answering an overstatement with another overstatement : You cannot make a rule from a one time ...
   Nov-29-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
arnaud1959: <YouRang: My suggestion was based on my dislike the notion that the classical chess championship cannot be determined by playing classical chess> I totally agree and I would like to suggest a tiebreaker which depends from classical games : Fixing some rules to evaluate the ...
   Oct-06-16 Mamedyarov vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
arnaud1959: b4 is the 15th move, so probably home prep.
   Jun-04-16 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2016 (replies)
arnaud1959: < I suppose Fab overestimated his position after 35.Qb4. The white a pawn is never a real threat>. He was in severe time trouble, unlike his opponent.
   Apr-25-16 Norway Chess (2016) (replies)
arnaud1959: <prior to Anand who was the highest-rated Indian player? Going back a long time here.> Ravikumar and Ravisekhar, maybe.
   Apr-24-16 R Kaufman vs S Sloan, 2012
arnaud1959: 11.-Kf7 12.Qb3+ Be6 13.Qf3+ still wins the Ra8.
   Apr-23-16 Vachier-Lagrave vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
arnaud1959: <Ulhumbrus> The e-pawn is already a target on e4 and the only way to protect it safely after 30 Rxd8 Rxd8 31 Nd4 was f2-f3, weakening the dark squares and it seems to be very risky, especially for a player who was in time trouble.
   Mar-27-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
arnaud1959: <like Lasker vs Capablanca, St. Petersburg(1914). Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 Lasker needed to win, and acted like he was playing for a draw.> Or like Kasparov vs Karpov : Kasparov vs Karpov, 1987
   Jan-30-16 Carlsen vs Y Hou, 2016 (replies)
arnaud1959: I can see two other reasons why Hou exchanged queens : 1) She already lost a queen ending against Carlsen : Yifan Hou vs Carlsen, 2013 2) A few days ago she handled well a pawn ending (again, after a Petroff !) against Caruana : Caruana vs Yifan Hou, 2016
