They say I'm a crazy bird, but who can really tell?

   Mar-25-20 World Championship Candidates (2020/21) (replies)
crazybird: I think the reason Carlsen worked with Nepo back in the day was because in one of their very sharp games he realised that he probably wasn't the best in the world in really sharp games - atleast at that moment. He said as much at the time. Someone can find those comments. The ...
   Nov-26-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
crazybird: Magnus Carlsen probably thinks he has 80-90% chance of winning under faster time controls vs. 55-65% probability of winning Game 12 from that position. Remember this is Game 12, not Game 1. They are tired and worn out now and pressure is greater and stakes are much higher. He ...
   Mar-13-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
crazybird: <The real problem is once again players are playing something for years and then changing up for Candidates> It can be a great strategy if you can execute it well. Like Kasparov's Dragon against Vishy in 1995 or Vishy's 1.d4 against Vlad in 2008.
   Jan-29-18 Tata Steel Masters (2018) (replies)
crazybird: Like Lee Sedol played AlphaGo (and lost 1-4), I'd like to see Magnus play AlphaZero.
   Nov-07-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship Match (2014) (replies)
crazybird: Magnus is just better than Vishy at all facets of the game, has more stamina plus he has WC matchplay experience as well now, so this match may not last the full duration. It would take miraculous preparation/surprise/magnus nervous breakdown for chips to fall in the favor of ...
   Oct-13-14 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
crazybird: Tenacity or Stamina? Hard to say.
   Oct-09-14 FIDE Grand Prix Baku (2014) (replies)
crazybird: <fisayo123: It's funny you type that considering he was already a 2700+ GM 4 years ago, (two years younger than the talents from the famous 1990 generation), world number 37 (youngest person in top 50) it's hardly a great insight or "discovery" from Volodya.> It me ...
   Sep-05-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
crazybird: <Sep-05-14 Petrosianic: Yeah, but Anand won't complain. a) Because he's a nice guy, and b) because he himself kept everyone in the dark a long time about whether he was going to play in the Candidates.> That's just stupid, sorry. A candidate does not owe anybody, anything.
   Sep-04-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
crazybird: This Caruana performance is like a single outcome, not yet an average/base rate. Maybe that changes from here, but we have to wait and see. Caruana is not known for chutzpah or killer instinct such as that possessed by Kasparov or Carlsen. Yet he possesses amazing clarity of ...
   Nov-10-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
crazybird: As Tiger Woods says, in round 4, he's just trying to avoid the bogeys. With just 12 games, bogeys/losses can be hard to come back from against competitors who are evenly matched. And this is the final round of the masters! For Carlsen, a 100 elo advantage in raw chess strength is ...
