   Sep-21-12 Nakamura vs Gelfand, 2012 (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: Seems like Black is set to play g5 but will he gut it up and do it.
   Sep-10-12 Levon Aronian (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: I found it quite telling that while watching the live Olympiad games on Chessbomb there were various kibitzers who found some GM moves weak and stupid by using the computer sidebar evaluations yet were clueless when the computer went down.
   Aug-29-12 Istanbul Olympiad (2012) (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: I looked at today's Nakamura game and thought somebody slipped me some Sandoz acid-it made no sense from any angle for the last 20-30 moves. And how can you not queen with check but instead put your lone queen on the queening square and block the pawn?

uscfratingmybyear: Hard fought, educational game.
   Aug-22-12 European Senior Championship (2012) (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: No Korchnoi?
   Aug-20-12 Louis Stumpers (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: Hey Jim, shoulda known-distracted trying to cut firewood with the squirrels pitching acorns at me trying to run me outta the area so they can get to the bird feeder while the jays are screaming about the noise I'm making-should cut them all off and play chess.
   Aug-16-12 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: I didn't see Andreikin on the Russia team list for the Olympiad which harshes my mellow a tad.
   Aug-14-12 Wesley So (replies)
uscfratingmybyear: MarkFinian, I must correct you on the Filipino Olympic metal count-the entire city population of Manila got gold metals in treading water recently. Millions of 'em. See, over there, they mindlessly cut down their forests and then when it rains it fills up the streets with ...
