So says Peter Zhdanov (HT: Brian Karen). The context was Hikaru Nakamura implicitly but obviously tweeting that Fabiano Caruana was cherry picking by playing in the Reyjkjavik Open, looking for easy rating points. So said Nakamura when Caruana passed him on the live rating list, although when in a subsequent open event Caruana fell back Nakamura didn't change his tune. Now, however, Nakamura himself has played in an open event and not just any open event, but a very weak one (by his exalted standards). Five rounds against players rated 1900+ to -2300+ netted him four rating points, extending his lead over Caruana and enabling him to pass Sergey Karjakin on the live list.
It's much ado about very little, but for me it makes me happy that a real sportsman like Viswanathan Anand holds the crown. A little smack talk among friends is one thing, but unless one's rivals are doing something unethical it's best, I think, to keep one's negative opinions to oneself.
As an aside, it's also wise, most of the time, as the talker runs the risk that one's opponents will be more motivated than before. Veselin Topalov tried it on Vladimir Kramnik, and it didn't work, and the normally classy Kramnik was taught a lesson in his match with Anand a couple of years later. I've experienced it at my own (considerably less exalted) level. Some years ago I had a match with an opponent who thought he would intimidate me with his bluster, but it didn't work. There were two results of this attempt: first, I decided I would never have anything to do with him again if I could help it. Life is too short to waste on people whose primary mode of interaction is belligerence. Second, I determined to do everything possible - ethically possible - to triumph, and I did.
I'm sure others have other opinions, but please, express them without bellicosity!
