I am a patzer. My rating is in the range 1700 - 1800 (on a good day I can beat a 1900 player, but I can also lose to a 1400 one :)

badest: <PhilFeeley: <jphamlore> According to, he lost 1.9 points. I don't know whether this keeps him in a candidate position or not.> I wish more of the top 10 played open tournaments. This was a fun event to watch.

badest: I agree too ... the Candidates may well be "harder" than the WC-match. It was that way for Carlsen at least.

badest: <Kinghunt: There's no question that Norway has money. But all that money belongs to people/institutions, and convincing any of them to give it to chess is an altogether different matter. If you have surefire ways to get even really rich people to donate a million dollars, please ...

badest: <MissScarlett> Money talks (and chess players need to eat too). In any case, I prefer Kirsan over Kasparov.

badest: <MissScarlett: Four games, four wins with white, honours even, since the resumption of hostilities this year.> Indeed. All highly entertaining games. Lol ... every time these guys meet it's like gunfight at the O.K. Corral ;)

badest: <devere: ... and is the reason why Topalov is widely despised by many of his fellow chess players, not just Kramnik.> LOL ... man are you a drama-queen.
