Let's hope so, as he lost in the final round

Karjakin doing well. He couldn't (over the next year or so) mount another challenge for a second chance at the world title, could he?
You may have jinxed him judging by the one sided nature of his loss to Carlsen today :oops:

Re: Media comments on chess

"A bit of a chess match" is the damning assessment of the FA cup semi-final today after almost thirty minutes of play by the disgruntled BT Sport commentator.

Re: Div 4 South 2018/19

"The clash with the ECF Academy weekend was a major factor" I am surprised the Academy thought that was a good idea. They allege that they chose their dates first, albeit there did appear to be an uncanny similarity in the dates chosen with traditional 4NCL weekends in previous clashes, the split w...

Re: Div 4 South 2018/19

I see that there are three absentee teams from Division Four (South) - namely Barnet Knights 4, Barnet Knights 5 and Check Innmates 3. Bearing in mind the number of registrations these clubs have notified (69 & 32 respectively), I can't understand why they are unable to raise sides given the dates ...

Good to see Shak drawing with Carlsen. Thought he might have still been upset about the mate in 49 he missed yesterday...
Wasn't it his opponent who had the mate in 49 though?

Re: European Individual Championship

Incidentally, a fine achievement by James Jackson, the lone Englishman in the mammoth 358-player field. He looked to be struggling with 3/8 but won his last three games, the final two against IMs, to finish with 6/11 and a 2416 performance, just half a point short of what I think would have been hi...
