Re: Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz 2017

Almost Kasparov's first win but after a rollercoaster game Navara found the last trick to win.

Re: Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz 2017

Re: Saint Louis Rapid & Blitz 2017

Le - Caruana end was amazing. 2800 players are ( very ) human. Although I didn't have the commentary on live it's worth playing it back it to hear the commentators applauding black's play, expecting white to resign and then the reality dawns on them that white is somehow winning. I think you mean t...

That could be blamed on those reporting the results for failing to use the correct grading codes.They aren't optional extras. Agreed. That was the likely reason for a Stafford player's results mix-up...
