Re: Going to the wrong venue for a game

It might be obvious but I'm going to point it out anyway.

Try going to the right venue that is usually the best way to avoid going to the wrong venue. It would also help if people got the right details.

Re: King's Tournament (5th)

This tournament has surprisingly produced alot of wins. Which of course is great to see. I thought the draw percentage was going to be alot higher.

Re: Where does Anand sit in the list of World Champions?

I think I would personally vote Anand stronger than Magnus Carlsen,, just purely based on his experience and he's faced all kind of oppositions.

Re: New chess league for London

Well James, I for one could help on this point. I agree wit Stewart that the fact these games can not be recovered is shocking, more people should do databases like 4ncl, or Sean's events the games can be downloaded on his website.

This also helps for preparation.

Re: New chess league for London

I might well be keen to play, certainly if it gave me opportunities to play against titled players, or 180 plus players. Further details would be good to know, however I think it's a brilliant idea and wonderful to...

King's Tournament (5th)

I have followed the round One of the 5 King's Tournament, and it's amazing to see the Worlds Number 2 to be playing so potently in his game against Nakamura. However I feel Nakamura made a few crucial mistakes and relatively early on. And another inspirational game is how Ivanchuk finds such creativ...

Re: Where does Anand sit in the list of World Champions?

Capablanca must be in One of the four groups which Arshad commented on. I mean he had raw Natural ability, and did not put anywhere near the effort in as players do today and look what he achieved.
