Hello, I am just a casual chess player who like to kibitz on GM games.

   blueofnoon has kibitzed 824 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Mar-23-22 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
blueofnoon: Sorry, but I find it amusing when people say "FIDE is too western" when the current president is from Russia and managing director is from Lativa. I also find it amusing when people say "FIDE is full of cancel culture". If anything, they are very tolerant on chess players remarks
   Mar-21-22 Tal vs Najdorf, 1970 (replies)
blueofnoon: Haha, comparing Fischer with another chess player always invites controversy. I cannot say who was better, Fischer or "healthy" Tal, but I would think the latter would be more "modern" player, with his wider opening repertoire and versatile playing style (as shown in this game). ...
   Jan-20-22 Karjakin vs Giri, 2022 (replies)
blueofnoon: I understand Karjakin could have done better than this, but how is Giri responsible for this game? A draw with black pieces agains 2700+ is a good result for any player and if the opponent plays for a draw from move one there is not much can be done about it.
   Jan-11-22 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
blueofnoon: According to chessmetrics, Zukertort was the highest rated player for as long as 56 months. Most of the modern players would be proud if they were called modern Zukertort.
   Jan-03-22 Alireza Firouzja (replies)
blueofnoon: <4. Companies like Tata and their sponsorship parties and little luxury vacations, dining at the most expensive restaurants have an enormous budget, needless to say> Actually this validates Nakamura's point btw. Firouzja is big in the chess community, but that does not mean
   Jul-07-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
blueofnoon: Kasprov achieved 2851 rating in 1999, but during that year he participated in only 3 classical and 1 rapid tournaments. Carlsen, on the other hand, already played 5 classical, 1 rapid and 2 blitz events this year. *according to Someone said the best way to remain ...
   Apr-30-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
blueofnoon: It's funny that while United States is one of the strongest chess countries in the world right now with 4 2700+ players, yet none of my friends from U.S. knows the fact that one of their compatriots is playing for the world championship this year. Chess deserves more attention in
   Jun-14-14 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
blueofnoon: Nakamura will play in the world rapid and blitz championships as a rating favorite. Looking forward to see how he will do in these events.
   Dec-09-13 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
blueofnoon: Once thing you can see from Kramnik is that he got a tendency to complain AFTER the competition. You often hear him or his fans saying "I hate KO format, I hate round robin, I hate tie-breaker rules" and all sort of blah blah. But those rules were there when he signed the ...
   Nov-25-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
blueofnoon: Usage of words like "understanding", "exciting", without giving definition to them, adds no value to one's argument.
