I'm a weak player but I just love watching better players. This helps me relax. I started following Magnus when he was ranked number 70-something in the world and I am still his fan. I believe I will still be his fan when he is out of top 100. I just hope this does not make me a glory-hunter.

   Jun-21-22 FIDE Candidates (2022) (replies)
faulty: ozero> I am not going to answer your question directly, but I looked through the losses of Magnus since he became the world champion in 2013 (only losses in classical). in short, Magnus has lost 31 games. Of the candidates, the victory list is the following: Caruana 4 Radjabov ...
   Jun-02-22 J Lechtynsky vs Pachman, 1968 (replies)
faulty: in the tournament, the only loss for Pachman. and the only victory for Lechtynsky
   May-23-22 Carlsen vs V S Gujrathi, 2022 (replies)
faulty: after move 9, white looks like Fischer-random
   May-02-22 A Vajda vs Ahues, 1927

   Apr-30-22 A Gabrielian vs M Krylov, 2009 (replies)
faulty: folks, ignore the computer analysis. enjoy passionate chess
   Apr-25-22 A Galliamova vs A Bodnaruk, 2014
faulty: I cannot see any way for white to win. 95... Nf5 96. Kd5 N*d6 97. ed6 and draw. what am I missing? can't be THAT stupid :(
   Apr-24-22 Taimanov vs Averbakh, 1953 (replies)
faulty: what a pity I cannot find the game Botvinnik-Smyslov where somewhere at move 40 Botvinnik went e2-e4, Smyslov made a mistake c7-c5, Botvinnik, I think, moved his bishop, and the black resigned. would be 'deferred Sicilian'. could someone look for it with some search system?
   Apr-12-22 A C Martin vs E Wolk, 1947 (replies)
faulty: considering that 'wolk' is from the Slavonic word for the wolf, my first thought was (after seeing the pun): 'there is a wolf somewhere'
   Mar-28-22 Richard Rapport (replies)
faulty: and so, Rapport is 100 percent in the Candidates. no theoretically possible combinations left which could eliminate him
