   Aug-13-23 FIDE World Cup (2023) (replies)
kappertjes: <Why are the reasons WHY his games are so remarkable mean so LITTLE to you?> Carlsen had different opinions about gambling (ok he was pushing the Norwegian chess federation way too hard) as well as about his obligation to play the WCC. Ever since some people are ex-fans, ...
   Mar-19-23 Nepomniachtchi - Ding World Championship Match (2023) (replies)
kappertjes: I also find myself agreeing with Kasparov here and don't see how those remarks/opinions require <utter arrogance>. The match will hopefully be great, but I too consider it a "world championship" that will probably never lose the quotation marks.
   Oct-10-22 U.S. Championship (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: <There were obvious big holes in his chess, but to be honest, I see big holes in the game of Giri, Aronian, Mamedyarov, Firouzja, and other top players> Quite amazing how this not-quite-2500 GM can spot 'big holes' in elite players' game. The entire chess elite must be ...
   Sep-19-22 Julius Baer Generation Cup (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: It's a glitch in the matrix!
   Jul-20-22 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
kappertjes: Seems likely Magnus would qualify for the candidates by rating anyway.
   Mar-30-22 FIDE Grand Prix Berlin (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: The Karjakin Cancelling is a natural extension of cancel culture. Correct opinions are mandatory not only on civil issues but also foreign policy and global politics.
   Mar-02-22 Airthings Masters (2022) (replies)
kappertjes: <We're not talking about harmless views on educational politics, tax regulations or health services.> I find the concept that views have to be harmless to be worthy of free speech disturbing. Who is going to be trusted to determine the 'harmlessness' of opinions? This is a ...
   Dec-14-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
kappertjes: Obviously Carlsen can do as he chooses, but I feel that every champion has a sort of moral duty to fight until dethroned. Not for themselves obviously, but so that others may have their heroic moment. A kind of karmic giving back.
   Jul-19-21 G Oparin vs Karjakin, 2021 (replies)
kappertjes: After 25. ... Rad8 it seems unlikely a GM, let alone a 2650 GM, could lose that endgame. However, Karjakin masterfully exploits every little weakness possible and makes it look like the hardest endgame to defend. In sequence Oparin tries to deal with the threat to the e4 pawn ...
   Sep-20-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
kappertjes: <which to me shows what a farce the ratings system is.> Any suggestions for improvement? Surely you have something to add if the current system is an actual <farce>. Perhaps instead you would prefer to be consulted so you can confirm if the relative placement of ...
