So Wins Tata Steel Chess Tournament

chessThere are many solid chess openings but I’m going to show you the top ten most solid chess openings that there are. First maybe I should define a solid chess opening; a solid chess opening is a chess opening characterized by minimal risk taking and quiet positional play rather than sharp tactical lines. Solid positions in general tend to be very hard to crack and maybe hard for a beginner to recognize but an experienced chess player can tell right away whether or not a position is solid or tactical.

I’ve had this prob since Pogo changed the chess table window. During the 1st game, the save game button is enabled, and works fine. Once the game ends the button becomes disabled, and never works again. However, the game chugged along with the remaining rooks going off the board with Carlsen going in for an exchange.

Having missed that chance, on move 37, Anand decided to liquidate into a drawn endgame when he exchanged the last pair of rooks.
