Chess

Game is still going but it looks like it’s going to be a draw. Carlsen will need 4 more draws and can win blitz. Caruana has to go berserk in game 12.


#163

Neither of these guys plays interesting chess. I hope someone new comes on the scene soon.


#164

If I looked at the board caruana is ahead, but apparently not.


#165

I totally agree. I’m rooting for caruana because he is from USA. He has been as boring as karjakin.


#166

Kasparov karpov once played 17 draws in a row. It was first to 6 win, which never happened in 1984. Could you imagine how long this would take here? Maybe someone would try to win, though.


#167

They just drew.


#168

They’re not even doing anything wrong. If I was playing someone with a ranking of 2800, I would be timid, too. I just really appreciate players who try crazy things and pull wins out of nowhere after sacrificing half their board.


#169

Another draw.


#170

Another draw. 2 more games until blitz. Now I want there to be 12 draws.


#171

Reggie loved watching the pieces.


#172

Caruana came close this game but he said he couldn’t see how to close it and he always felt vulnerable to a counter mate if he screwed up.


#173

Yes very good observing.


#174

Another draw. Caruana with white tomorrow.
Time for some agression. And a good night’s sleep.


#175

This isn’t exactly on topic but should I buy this? I think I like it but I’m not sure.


#176

I wouldn’t. But go ahead if you want it. What is it that appeals to you?


#177

I haven’t owned a chess set for years. This looks interesting to me. That said it’s probably overpriced. I don’t know enough about what things like that are worth to be sure though.


#178

Also the plants I buy for the coffee table keep dying and I think a chess set might last longer there. lol.


#179

Maybe this. Dunno.


#180

I like the pieces in the first one better.


#181

Craigslist is the perfect place to look for a chess set though.

Only one interesting one near me…
