It's not necessarily going to give you an accurate chess rating. It might be in the ballpark, or it might not. Puzzle battle rating applies to puzzle battle.

Magnus is bored with chess imo.

He's gonna lose the title and within 3 years he will have quit competitive chess.

He should return to the dynamic attacking style of his youth imo.

I feel like it's seemed like he was getting burned out and bored a number of times, and yet he still keeps going.

I was worried leading up to, and during the Caruana-match especially as it seemed like Magnus doubted himself and had lost his edge, but he won that and he's just kept going since.

And 2019 was one of his best years - triple crown and record no-losing streak. He's been seemingly borderline burned out and bored for so long now, and yet he just keeps owning.

Also, I don't really see what other venues he'd go for - obviously he has a ton of options and stuff he could do, but he kinda seems made for chess.

Yeah, well rested from not preparing. But who knows, maybe that ends up being an advantage. Free mind and all.

I'm looking to place a bet ($) on the Candidates but there are no real options in my state currently. If I could send money to a regular to bet for me or take my action that would be great.

Of course before you send the money, the regular has to send a few hundos to some Nigerian prince via Western Union, right?

Wait? What? If you're serious then you don't need preparation. You're always ready 24/7.

This goes with any sport and game in existence.

You either got it or you don't!!!

There is obvious specialized preparation for an event such as the candidates.

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

Odds the Candidates gets cancelled mid-tourney?

Teimour Radjabov should be awarded the right to face Magnus for the TITLE if that happens imo.

Grischuk is literally addicted to creating time trouble for himself.
