All hail the king. Feel for Fabi but still an amazing match.

Magnus blunders game 12 like vs Karjakin in game 8 of 2016, WELL AT LEAST HE WENT FOR THE WIN.

Lmao gg, it's been fun guys.

GCT finals, also featuring Caruana, will be interesting too.

Not even close. AIM who has been quite active ITT is worlds stronger than I am. Don't remember if YKW dropped into this thread but he is worlds stronger too.

Magnus is about an 80% fav in rapid with probably less variance than one sharp classical game.
Well...not sure about that, I was giving it 70%. Today of course was a disaster for Fabi but after not holding the first game a 3-0 result was probably fairly likely.

Sesse gave Magnus a less than pain evaluation and it didnt seem risk free.
Which one? Finding Ba3 was likely winning and was risk-free as long as Magnus did 5 minutes of work looking at it (probably less).

We'll see - I wonder if he'll take next year "off" and date again, only worrying about winning stuff the year after when candidates is coming up.

I think both players have some tough work to do. Carlsen's classical chess is broken in some manner - players at this age don't just steadily decline year over year.

Caruana is in Karjakin's shoes where he was super close and it will be hard to stay hungry. I mean, no one is hungrier than Karjakin yet he definitely didn't seem to do as much work/push as hard the last couple of years vs. the years before his match with Carlsen.

I'm a bit worried this was Magnus' biggest test for the next several years and as long as he doesn't quit and fixes his Classical chess, we need to wait for the next wave of young guys since Wei Yi/Rapport/Artiemev/Duda age bracket seems a bit busted for championship equity.

Magnus knew all he had to do was to get to rapid and its game over for fabi.

Readily apparent.

This wouldn't be interesting in the least.

GG Magnus, I must admit I thought he'd lost his intimidation factor and that it was about 50-50 in the rapids. Definitely a lesson for future challengers.

Bieber the biggest Challenge is to see how long he’ll can stay Number 1 on the classical list. That’s as important to him as the title

Well Magnus shoved Kasparov, Kramnik and anyone else's criticism straight back in their throats. He is the king. I guess a lot can happen in two years, but doesn't seem like Magnus is getting dethroned anytime soon.

My favorite line from the article:

On the thirty-first move, Carlsen, despite having a clearly better position—bearing down on Caruana’s king, with Caruana running out of time on the clock, a predicament known as “time trouble”—offered Caruana a draw.
I had a good giggle at bolded. Only someone who found that confusing themselves would think to have to explain it to someone else that way.
