Re: Tata Steel 2017

Magnus has drawn today. Unusual for him not to try to grind out a win in a long endgame.

Re: What is your favourite Chess Website to Play Chess on?

Chessbase.com is the one I play Blitz on. As a guest, you don't know who your opponents are, but as long as you win, who cares ?

Re: Shropshire Chess Congress 6-8 Jan 2017 Live Games

The double Rook sacrifice does not work according to Fritz 13. White takes both Rooks and after a few checks is able to interpose the Queen on g2 and then shortly wins.

Re: Shropshire Chess Congress 6-8 Jan 2017 Live Games

Nice attacking game by Mark Hebden. But can he win after sacrificing a rook for three pawns ? Probably !
