When I heard yesterday that a Russian chess player killed himself falling from a balcony, I thought he must have lost that last game. Glad to see otherwise.

Surely the speed-play rating differences will tell, now, and it's a bit meaningless. Pity they don't play the golden goal rule, or some variation on that such as a clear +1.

Like in soccer. Leading a long time 1-0, then equalizer by avoidable mistake shortly before the end......and losing 1-2 in overtime

12 straight draws sucks in any kind of competition.

The rules need to be changed to greatly lessen the chances of a draw.

Players are now allowed 2.5 minutes per move for the first 60 moves.

Make it 2.0 minutes per move and see what happens.

I thought the 12 draws was fascinating, to be honest, and didn't see anything wrong with it at all. If anything, it was a shame it had to be decided by quicker and quicker formats. They were exciting draws - would have loved to see them keep going and going. (Though had the tiebreak format not been in play, Magnus would have won that 12th game.)
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)
