Originally posted by thaughbaerI found the commentary was really glitchy on my computer. Maybe it is because i'm using linux. Adams win today was really great! The piece Sac was really well judged, if he can only find a way to not lose to Anand, Vishy seems to have a voodoo over Mickey if memory serves..
Adams 1 Caruana 0
I particularly like the LiveStream commentary Chromecast to the TV

Ok so the last round is about 5 minutes old and three draws are almost certain already! Damn the Berlin to hell!!!
Originally posted by 64squaresofpainIt's not that the Berlin is uninteresting, you can learn a lot by seeing this type of play. It is a rare sort of position in that it offers so little by the way of tactics, but lets face it, it really gets awefully dull to watch it played over and over and over again....YAWN!

Let's just hope that the reason why they're all playing the Berlin is they're trying to refute it,
and soon we'll stop seeing it at all 😀
Originally posted by 64squaresofpainYes i have to admit, his game was rather good. The Berlin can come alive, but a bit more variety wouldn't hurt. That said, well done Anand! Seems he still has Caissa on his side after all. 😀
Vishy wins the tournament via the tie-break, the condition being most wins with the Black pieces.
Only one game was won with Black in the entire tournament, and guess what? Twas with the Berlin!!
