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.

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.

2-2. Naka reiterates feeling no pressure due to "nobody" expecting him to win. Tania asks Carlsen, says he has high standards for himself.

Hikaru seems determined to solve Carlsen's Berlin Defense, I don't understand how that can be great in a long match.

(Gm. 4) Hikaru's best Kasparov impersonation was seen on this move. Yasser suggested mouse slip, Leko assured him it wasn't, although he wasn't totally sure.

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

Hi 2+2 chess thread.

My company is developing a chess product. If any of you would kindly donate 15 minutes for a market research interview - Iíll return the favor with 50% off the product (coming out early 2021).

Thanks - let me know!

FWIW - I am a chess noob, but studying the game and playing a bunch as I develop this product.
