Re: ? I thought that Carlsen is the best Blitz player?

It would be more interesting to see him struggle and have to prove himself again, not just sit on it till old age.
Like this, he'll just bow out suddenly and do something else, and he'll say he wanted to step aside.

Re: ? I thought that Carlsen is the best Blitz player?

I didn't want magnus to come first. But i see he did now.
So he still feels great and would think he only had a short bad spell because he was too relaxed and frozen shortly after becoming world champion vs nakamura.

Re: Who pays for chess engines today?

Out of 8 top engines most are free. Strongest engine is free. Every move found by Houdini will also be found by either Stockfish, Ethereal, Andscacs or Leela. So who are the people who still pay?

Re: ? I thought that Carlsen is the best Blitz player?

First he said that he was going to win the Rapid and finally conquer Blitz, so far Carlsen did not win the Rapid and I am NOT too sure about the Blitz either, it could be Grischuk, or Naka the B O M B * http://wrbc2018.com/en/ GM Grischuk vs GM Carlsen in Blitz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=choRX...

Re: After the Queen Trap NOT even Komodo can beat a 2304

Even then he needs to be truly humble. He may be a huge amount better, even with many material points down, but you can't scoff at g-d who keeps giving a person the power every second. That is what humility is needed for.
Chess is maybe a good test for that.

Re: After the Queen Trap NOT even Komodo can beat a 2304

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKS8B11-C4A Sorry this was a horrible video, here you can see the move better, anyway after the Queen Trap and Bishop for the Queen there is a difference of only 6 points, but after the Knight for Rook there should only be a 4 points difference and Carlsen being 600 ...

Yes, SF8 on second place
It might not beat the komodo which was out then or a bit later.

Komodo totally dominated SF, 3-4 years ago or more.
