Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

Easier for Radjabov, who's got no option but to win twice from here. MVL might think he's still got a decent chance with a draw, on the grounds that most of the other players currently on 4/7 might be likely to finish on 5/9, so a draw and a last-round win might well be enough. On the other hand, if...

Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

I was hoping they might get some last round situation where Radjabov and MVL were drawn together where a draw might be good enough for both to qualify but a win for either would guarantee a place (and eliminate the other).

Probably not going to happen though.

Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

I reckon so. Still, him holding on today while Radjabov didn't is a pretty big deal.

Re: Grand-Prix 2017 Events Venues and Dates confirmed

I'm guessing MVL's strategy is to hang on to his +2 for a bit until he thinks he knows what he needs to do.

Re: European Tax Haven Championship; November 11-19

Ah that's a good point. I wonder if Gibraltar (being a FIFA member) has aspirations in that respect?

There's a comment on Chessbomb which says: "on chess-news cite [sic] on right side, after each round shall be posted tab, showing standings in GP as if round was last". For some reason I can't spot this, though the same commentor tells us "thus, on current stage Radja qualifies from 1-st place with ...

Re: New broadcast model for World Championship Match

I switched to radio commentary at some point in this game , having had enough Brian Moore for one evening, with the result that I could hear the crowd celebrate the ball hitting the net before, on screen, Ronald Koeman had actually struck it. Because Spanish TV only had live coverage of about half t...
