Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

I still love Magnus outright proclaiming "hey Fabi I'm such an overdog to you in rapid and blitz that I'm going to snap take a draw with a better position" in game 12, with countless GMs saying how stupid it was and Magnus just trolling the whole way.

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

Haha the best is when both of you miss the same tactic over and over and over so it's actually only 1 blunder each

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

Speaking of blunders, still bitter I hung my queen:
in the middle of the board,
during a mating attack [forced mate in 16 but overwhelming regardless],
right after it was threatened by his knight,
which was easily exchanged off,
to a future US Junior Champion.

since I don't play tourneys anymore that's the closest I'll ever get to a 'big' chess tourney win.

Magnus -xxx (currently -556 on Bwin) has to be free money, right?

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

Naka just beat him a couple months ago - a best of 7 sets seems tough to win as an underdog though

-550 seems maybe a shade too much juice

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

I can't say I know how to bet on chess from the US. There is a pretty big gap between the value given for Carlsen and Naka on Bwin (-556 and +350)....I would like to wager around 5/1. If that's kosher for this thread. QTB.

Naka wouldn't bet on himself. Excluding conflicts of interest of course.
