Fabi looks as uncomfortable as I've seen him the whole match including game 1, usually has a great poker face and you can tell he's struggling here. (move 13-14/game 9 for those who don't watch this live)

Just tuned in. Giri and Svidler are incredible, they really energise each other. Wonder what it’ll be like when Grischuk joins

Uh oh for Fabi, didn't like that capture on F3 (move 17) and neither did the computer. Already under a decent amount of time pressure...

In for Fabi choking under time pressure in a position he can't win

I've been waiting the whole match for him to take over from his wife. Awesome commentary team, and without a single doubt the highest average Elo commentary team of all time.

Magnus was clearly annoyed after the game but I think he and his team will realize today was mission accomplished getting a game closer to the tiebreak. Fabiano has to win one of the last three games imo, usually the last game is very conservative so tomorrow is crucial.

During two of which he'll be playing the white pieces.

This narrative that Magnus is just trying to cruise to tiebreaks which he'll win 100% of the time is getting a bit silly by now.

Today was anything but "Mission Accomplished" for him.

Care to wager on it then? I don't think Magnus wins 100% but I think has a significantly higher edge than he does currently once we get out of the classical format over Fabiano which means the narrative is pretty appropriate. Don't think you can really argue which one of them would prefer the series going 12 draws.

Magnus has never struck me as the type who plays for draws, even knowing that he has an advantage in tiebreaks. I guarantee he's unhappy that he hasn't converted a win yet.

The guy is insanely competitive, of course he isn't happy about the draws. Still doesn't change the fact he's closer to a game type where he will have a bigger edge so today has to be a net positive imo even with two black games in the final 3/tiebreaks having higher variance.

I now predict this goes down to the Armageddon game where Fabiano gets (the choice of which he chooses) White and the extra time, with him failing to win the game.

MAGNUS WILL RETAIN THE TITLE.

Re: 2018 World Chess Championship: Magnus Carlsen vs Fabiano Caruana

hopefully another open sicilian today, i think magnus might crack today if fabi gets a similar good position as in game 8.
the way the match has gone, it feels more likely that fabi is getting somewhere in the classical time control. just a question if magnus match experience lets him control his nervs better, chesswise he has not been better.


looking forward to the sick c24 broadcasting crew w svidler, giri and grischuk.

Wow, a true novelty at move 10. At least I have zero games in my rather large database that feature 10.b4.

10.b4 isn't even in the lichess opening explorer. I'm not sure how many of the bagillion games played on that server made it into the explorer (I've been meaning to download the entire lichess database containing 481M games. Note to self to do that), but usually if a move is not in my database, it's usually at least in the lichess explorer.

Re: 2018 World Chess Championship: Magnus Carlsen vs Fabiano Caruana

seems like some good computer prep by team caruana again. sesse gives a half pawn edge to white, while weaker engines seem to think black equalized already.

game will get sharp again after f5

Magnus was well prepared for today, playing basically in line with stockfish. If you play the game out from here, the lack of Fabi's queen being involved has the potential to really hurt him.

Naka hates 12. b4, opining that Fabi should have seen how it would lead to him having a tricky, difficult game.
