ionnn: Two of the four classical victories of Magnus over Maxime are from 2005. Back then they were only fourteen years old. On the last 10 years the score is level. Maxime is far from being an easy opponent for Magnus. I expect a great game.

ionnn: <KVB> I'm curious to know why you think Aronian is the only one who can give Magnus a challenge instead of MVL or Caruana ? If we look results in classical chess for the last 10 years (2007-2017) between Carlsen and these players it's far from obvious : Carlsen - Aronian : +13

ionnn: <DcGentle> Theory gives 8 0-0, instead of 8 Qe2, with the idea 8 ... b4?! 9 Nd5!

ionnn: Is 8 ... Nc6 a novelty ?

ionnn: If white had played 43 Kh2 instead of 43 Ra1 can't they get the draw ?
   Oct-27-08 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
ionnn: 4 of each group
   Sep-23-08 Vachier-Lagrave vs J Degraeve, 2008 (replies)
ionnn: Instead of 24 ... ♕xg3?, the quiet move 24 ... g6!! seems to save Black. For example : A) 25 ♖xf2 ♖xf2 26 ♕xf2 e3! and White has to take the draw by perpetual check B) 25 a3 (no more back rank mate) ♕h6 26 ♖xf2 ♖xf2 27 ♕xf2 e3!= and if ...
   Sep-23-08 Vachier-Lagrave vs K Arkell, 2008 (replies)
ionnn: 59 ... Ka2!! draws but 54 Ng5 seems to win with the idea : 54 ... Kc4 55 Nf7!!
   Aug-28-08 T Abergel vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2008 (replies)
ionnn: After 27 Rxg7? it's difficult to believe that white are lost... but it's the case.
