In a friendly game vs. an amateur I wouldn't try to capitalize on such small gaffes. Well, the match will be more exciting now #SinqCup
There are no FIDE rules for tandem chess, so I am not sure what the reasoning was behind forfeiting Rex 4 forgetting how to promote #SinqCup
It takes a lot of time & effort to organize a top event, so the absence of information about the WWCC host is alarming, to put it mildly
Now that the #CarlsenAnand issue is more or less settled, what about the Women's World Chess Championship? Starts October 11; venue unknown
Salmond's private polls predict 54-46 Yes. Desperate last ten days ahead for both sides. Most powerful media, BBC, totally biased for No.

A great chess king, like any monarch, should value the prosperity of his kingdom above personal interests. Magnus and Vishy passed the test
Kudos to @MagnusCarlsen and @vishy64theking for agreeing to play the World #Chess Championship match in #Sochi! Have a great match!

All I know is a split would be a disaster for the chess world. We don't want to return to the "now who is the champion?" mess yet again
September 7, the deadline. Will Magnus Carlsen sign the World #Chess Championship contract? What do you think? #CarlsenAnand
Caruana: "We shouldn't draw too many conclusions from my result. I still have to maintain my level." #SinqCup
Retweeted by Natalia Pogonina… A Caruana victory from his astounding 1st place in St Louis 3 points ahead of the world champion-what a performance!!

Если бы до турнира сказали что поделю с Грищуком, я бы согласился;-). Лучше всех было Яну, который опоздал, и был зрителем весь турнир;-).

Moro's result of 15.5/19 is highly impressive, especially when such titans as Grischuk and Karjakin scored only 10.5/19. A very tough field
Grats to Alexander Morozevich on winning the strong #Moscow blitz tournament 2.5 points ahead of the competitors:…
"Rating? I have my own rankings! He MIGHT become a top-10 player" (or something similar) (2/2)
I recall the time though when Jakovenko was ahead of Kramnik on and #5 on the FIDE list. Vlad calmly replied to the journalist (1/2)
Kramnik and Anand are more reserved in this sense; one doesn't often hear them sort other players into categories
This reminds me of Kasparov saying things like "Aronian close to 1st category, but not quite there" or "Topalov not a 1st category player"
Carlsen: "Caruana proved he's the new #2 in the world and he clearly deserves to be there!" :D #SinqCup #verbalboxing
Caruana squandered a large advantage vs. Carlsen & drew. He still won #SinqCup with 2 rounds to go! Will he win all the mini-matches?

With a live rating of 2670, she is clearly ahead of the competitors. The only truly interesting match would be Hou Yifan vs. Judit Polgar

I wish we had Shao Kahn from #MortalKombat commentate on Caruana's run: "Round 1, fight!"; "Superb!"; "Flawless victory!"; "Finish him!"
Caruana defeated Carlsen, Aronian, Naka, MVL and Topalov - 5/5 at #SinqCup. Tournament of a lifetime or the rise of a new #chess king?

Impressed by the way Caruana outplayed Aronian at #SinqCup. Fabiano's 4/4 score in such a strong tournament is beyond spectacular!
