    Marc RoverΠριν μήνα

    Btw, I watched an online speed-chess tournament (all of Magnus's games). He joined super-late, so he did the "Blitz" or "bullet" thing every round to gain extra points on each win (his opponents got 60 seconds, he only gets 30 seconds) and it was truly breath-taking. He was DISMANTLING 2400-2500 players in SECONDS. I couldn't believe it.

  35. Marc Rover

    Marc RoverΠριν μήνα

    If anyone reads this, what do you think about Knight to G5 @@ 4:20-ish (as opposed to Hikaru's move of H2.) Seems like that move would make that knight VERY active, and under no immediate threat. You could even follow it-up w/ Rook to F1 so you could target that pawn at F7, and harass the HELL out of blacks king.

    I find it funny that everbody says MVL is an expert Najdorf and Grünfeld player just because he sticks to a small opening repertoire to the point people avoid to play normal Sicilian vs him. He gets beat quite often in Grünfelds and Najdorf actually Lol and I doubt he knows all the lines to a tea.

    I'm far far from being phenomenal, but Nf5 was the movie I've found almost immediately. It destroys black's pawn structure, it opens a way for the rook on e3 to come. Seemed so natural for me. Of course, this happens when you know there is something in the position (please, pause the video).
