I am not Nigel Short.

   Jan-30-11 Tata Steel Group A (2011) (replies)
nigelsnoru: <may someone give the last> PETER FARTED Back to the Russian lesson: It's going to be hard to remember calling V.I. "Chooky" from now on. It just doesn't have as nice a ring as the usual nickname.
   Jan-06-11 Ivanchuk vs Morozevich, 2011 (replies)
nigelsnoru: Whoops, sorry, the one Dvoretsky skips is the two bishops. My bad.
   Dec-23-10 Russian Championship Superfinal (2010) (replies)
nigelsnoru: <both> That was tried in the US Championship a while ago, I believe. White would have 60 minutes. Each player secretly "bid" on the amount of time that Black would have. The lowest bid received Black and draw odds. Kamsky bid 25 minutes and managed a draw, winning the ...
   Dec-21-10 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
nigelsnoru: Nietzsche was the "God is dead" philosopher. But the disappointment puzzles me. The Rams?
   Dec-15-10 London Chess Classic (2010) (replies)
nigelsnoru: Haha, down to KvK in Nakamura/Adams. Very nice.
   Nov-25-10 Anand vs Nakamura, 2010 (replies)
nigelsnoru: <kellmann> HORSE POO Speaking of horse, rather than all the fuss over b4, one should consider the 4.Nh3 line for white in the Leningrad. If I remember correctly from MCO, there is no "defense" for black that prevents White from having an edge. At first glance, I was excited
   Nov-20-10 D Andreikin vs Nakamura, 2010
nigelsnoru: Actually, Andreikin's position looked pretty nice after winning the extra pawn, and might have been in even better shape had he seen the idea of Nd2-c4-e5 before Nakamura was able to defend against it. One nice thing about the Dutch for White, as Bellin points out in "Winning ...
   Oct-31-10 Cap d'Agde (2010) (replies)
nigelsnoru: <lack of> I'll assume this was an error. Note to Mr. Nakamura: If you don't like it, then change YOUR behavior, and we'll change ours.
   Oct-15-10 Grand Slam Chess Final (2010) (replies)
nigelsnoru: Actually I wouldn't count a Shirov time trouble blunder out. 15 mins to make almost as many moves...
   Oct-14-10 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
nigelsnoru: Carlsen is definitely slumping, but on the other side of the coin, I can't think of a player right now that Kramnik DOESN'T use and abuse. Maybe Anand and that's it. I think Shirov used to give VK a run for the money back in the day, but no longer.
