   Dec-04-17 Carlsen vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
jhelix70: no attempt by any of the players playing white to claim an opening advantage...Adams played e4 but went with a Bb5 Sicilian, the others sticking with quiet lines of d4 or c4.
   Dec-03-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
jhelix70: Is this what the draw death of chess looks like? Top players are so well prepared with databases and computer analysis.
   Nov-29-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
jhelix70: <<YouRang: In any case thanks for your example of how to write a post that isn't long and boring.>> You're welcome :-) I'm enjoying reading the different opinions (at least those posts that lack insults and trolling). Thanks to all those who keep things respectful.
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
jhelix70: <<<jhelix70: > If we continue to get all draws I would expect Karjakin to start getting desperate and possibly make mistakes to try and avoid the rapids part of the match. This should make for some interesting games down the line.>> Maybe this will happen. But ...
   Nov-15-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
jhelix70: <<not not: Jhelix, how about tennis way, like if tie they play 2 extra games, white and black, and who gets more points out of two games wins? If same points, another two extra games? Like tie break in tennis>> This could work, but would also bring back the specter of ...
   Aug-30-16 P K Wells vs Short, 2015
jhelix70: << Fusilli: The Benoni comes with a big "handle with care" sign attached to it. I'm not sure I'd agree with 18...Nfd7. White could place the knight on d4, making a P-b5 break very difficult for black, and following up with f4. >> Interesting game...I think after 18. ...
   Jun-30-16 D Feoktistov vs M Tomb, 2004
jhelix70: Quiet as a tomb.
   May-14-16 Jobava vs S Bogner, 2016 (replies)
jhelix70: 24. Ra8!! What a shot from Jobava! Would make a good daily puzzle at some point. Presumably, the answer to 26. ...Qc8 is Bh3.
   Apr-25-16 Norway Chess (2016) (replies)
jhelix70: <<Actually I am curious just why there is so much fear of the Neo-Gruenfeld Goglidze attack (D70) after 1. d4 ♘f6 2. c4 g6 3. f3 d5. If one is unwilling to play this line, then indeed one is forced into a Saemisch Kings Indian or Benoni-type game.>> And yet, ...
   Feb-25-16 Kamsky vs S Arun Prasad, 2015 (replies)
jhelix70: Kamsky certainly seems to be the reigning expert in this opening; is there any other top GM playing it nowadays? I'm guessing no one invests a lot of time preparing for it as black (since it is so rare), which could explain his ongoing success. (Well, plus Kamsky's own mastery.)
