Not far from it. IIRC, Carlsen's never lost a tiebreaker match in his life

Here's where I normally say:

There's a first time for everything.

But we're talking about Magnus ****ing Carlsen here. So yeah, not gonna happen.

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

Do people really think Magnus Carlsen has draw odds? Im a bit confused. Even if Caruana wins the tiebreaker 20% of the time that can easily be enough to be the difference between having a -EV bet a + EV bet.
