Re: 2018 Candidates Thread

I mean, if Magnus from two years ago shows up I think 30% or even a bit more is warranted. Fabi is better than Karjakin imo. But I have a feeling Magnus will be better prepared this time.

Re: 2018 Candidates Thread

Magnus Carlsen is all about psychology.

He's like if Ivan Drago had a brain.

Fabi deserves an appreciation thread. He's a big fan of poker too.

Re: 2018 Candidates Thread

Surely Magnus will play better than he did last World Championship match. If he goes down a couple games to Caruana he will lose in such a short match.
