the problem with chess is its incosistency

    It's just too complicated to understand simple ones.

    Because those two positions involve different skillsets.

    No different than at school. One student does better at Literature. One at Math. Another at French. Another at shop.

    The Lord gives us all our own unique skills and strengths. It is up to you, to discover your poarticular strengths, and nurture them.

    To answer your question, a chess game consist of 3 phases.

    1. Opening

    2. Middle Game

    3. end Game.

    A famous GM has been known to say, that to beat him, you have to beat him in the opening, middle game and end game.

    I hear GM's tak about their games (post game press conferences  or interviews)  They talk about their games. They say the postion is sharp, or it is double edged, or complicated.

    In the World Championship Match, Carlsen said the game was complicated so he had to shut it down.

    In recent tournaments Anand was critzed for playing passive looking for a draw. Nakamura is blasted for playing recklessly.

    You say Aronian likes complicated games. I do not know his record but I would guess if this is true he wins or lose's his games. Is that true?

    Cool

    but aronian has a worse record against magnus and lower elo

  • #27

    i think anand was having pressure to hold his title so anand tried for draw and seeked for chances to win, but Carlsen was nothing to hold so he went for a do or die, finnaly he won, may be in future Carlsen alsodo the same as anand did and  look go for draws?????????????

    I don't think that guy played like 1000

    No, he is not. He has been removed. I just couldn't believe I lost to this guy, I kept quiet. Then I saw he's removed.

    why doesn't Levon adopt Magnus style..wouldn't he get the same results

    You've been rehashing your "Carlsen likes simple positions, Aronian complicated ones" over-simplifying mantra in a few threads now, under various covers.

    As you may have noticed, this does not give you any productive feedback, and makes other people look at you strangely. It has not been hailed as a particularly original or striking idea, and will not be.

     

    But of course, you can keep doing it and expect different results. The problem with you, OP, is your consistency.

     

    Yes, this sounds like #11, because it's an exact copy. On the other hand, it does seem to answer well, doesn't it ?

    From memory, it was Tarrasch - so technically, not a GM.

    Thanks for pointing out is was Tarrasch who said that. I looked him up and could not find the quote. I did find him saying, "Before the endgame the gods have placed the middlegame". Do you have the link to Tarrasch being given credit for the, beat him in the opening, middle game and end game"?

    quote that is sometimes attributed to Alekhine about himself, and which may be apocryphal: "If you beat me in the opening, you have to beat me in the middlegame, and, if you beat me in the middlegame, you have to beat me in the endgame"

    "If you beat me in the opening, you have to beat me in the middlegame, and, if you beat me in the middlegame, you have to beat me in the endgame". Here, Alehkine is on top out of the opening and into the middlegame, and suddenly there is not even an endgame! A very unusual game

    Memory was wrong, apparently. You're probably right that it was Alekhine.

    Because Aronian goes for such positions and thrives in them, and magnus goes for such positions and thrives in them?

     

    #edit#

    And what does chess being incosistent have to do with Aronian and Carlsen? xD

    I looked up the quote and the closest I could find was Alehkine.
