twoinchgroup: So what is the point in analysis by engines? Idealistically, if I and my opponent take the same computer analysis to the board then it really comes down to he who has the better memory wins the game. Mikhail Tal is rolling over in his grave just at the mention of such apostasy.

twoinchgroup: Shahade is the single worst chess commentator ever. Surely someone did not speak to her and think "Ah, the english language simply roles off her silvery tongue. She would be a wonderful comentator."

twoinchgroup: macpx said: <My first impression was - it was all set up. Cause black played this game like a retard. But it's hard to believe they would do that> Interesting how macpx neglects to demonstrate HOW IT IS that black played like a retard. Apparently when macpx says a ...
