Carlsen - Karjakin by Euclides Zoto[_3_]
Was looking up all of there previous encounters in the database and almost 90% of their encounters were in blitz or rapid events. They played just a couple of games in real tournaments and they are even. I thought that there tournament encounters were much more than that. Just curious as to why this is. Hard to gauge their WCC match on their past games when they've played mostly blitz. EZoto

Short-Cheparinov Corus 2008 by Paul

Was the decision to repeat the opening made by the players or was it mandated by the officials that the game be continued from the position where it was abandoned? No one responded but, assuming that the...

With Fritz 15 how do I print a game with notation by SolomonW[_4_]
On older versions of Fritz GUI, I used to be able to print a game with scores and notation! ?! !? etc. So I would get something like. 13. BC4? or 18. NC3 d6! I think I also used to be able to get an evaluation for each move.

HA. HA. haaaaa... GO busted. Google DeepMind AlphaGo beats LeeSe-dol in game 1 by raylopez99
I remember when Usenet had a GO forum (seems to have disappeared) I trolled them after Deep Blue won vs Kasparov, telling them their turn was next, and how smug and sanctimonious they were, saying it will never happen due to GO's complexity, mystical nature and other such nonsense. Ignorant peasants. Their game is rubble now, and the difference is: chess has a rich pedigree and will continue,...

Opening Monographs by [email protected]
Recently Mike Murray said he had played in a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit theme tournament, and I thought 2 things -- I have no idea what happens in this opening since I have never encountered it as White or Black, and secondly I have a few monographs in the chess library that I never think of, since they have no spine markings. Among these is a publication by Chess Digest magazine, of Dallas, Texas ...

The Big Yerm by Offramp
Yermolinksy quote from Chessville: "Generally speaking, most chess players are boring, self-centered, money-oriented, poorly educated overgrown adolescents I couldn't care less about. With some exceptions, that includes the Linares crowd and all of the world's top twenty."

K&Kt v K&Kt & Rules for arbiters by Phil Innes
Here is a crazy situation that arose in the awful Armageddon finals imposed by USCF on the national women's championship a few years ago. As ani fül no, K&Kt v K&Kt can be won. The rules of the competition gave black a win if the game was drawn, and this ending was achieved but the arbiter said this was a theoretical draw, stopped the clock and stated the game was drawn and gave a score of...

You make the call by [email protected]
Seems like several folks here are too clever to figure this out. Here is the scenario, you are the arbiter and everyone wants to go home. The last game has this position with black to move -- both sides have plenty of time on their clocks but the lights are about to go out -- so how do you decide this game from this position? White: Kf2, Nf1, pawn, h2 Black: Kh1 Nf3 Phil Innes

James Russell Lowell's Poem about Morphy, 1859 by Offramp

Nigalidze punished by Offramp
GM Nigalidze has been given a 3-year ban for using a smartphone during a game, and probably using it to cheat. Three years seems about right. Chess is his career and it would be wrong to deprive him of that for a long time. Perhaps he'll take up poker. The fault is also with the organizers, who often fail to put up enough barriers to cheating. People get tempted. The current complete ban on...
