If there's any consolation in the tournament being postponed, none of them were going to beat Magnus anyway.

That's probably true, but I'd love to see an MVL or Nepo match against him.

Dunno if you missed it but Magnus pretty much came out on coverage (and doubled down on Twitter) saying Rajabov was scared of playing the Candidates and used corona as an excuse

Read this far and was pretty surprised. Less surprised by the time I reached the end of the sentence.

Also: Nepo loses and Putin immediately suspends the tourney. That's strong leadership in troubled times.

Lol Lawrence Trent asked him if he was going to do one of those Bachelor-type shows since the World Championship would be delayed and he said he'd "have to ditch the witch"

infuriating, seems like I screwed up the timing - giving me ~5.5 hours to watch to re-find it. Otoh, Magnus is such a great world champ.

Ok, still didn't find it, but 21st March, 3.44

Svidler: "Math is idiotic"

immediately followed by Trent:"What is going on. Unbelievable, Jeff." and Magnus cracks up.

Aiiight. So .. found it. Mar 21st @ 3.51 & change

context: Jan, Magnus & Peter commentating on Ding-Giri and Magnus & Peter criticising Giri playing n. ... c4

Jan reading the chat: "must be so many moments of disappointment rooting for Anish, Jan. "

Jan: "Yeah, but I'm like a New York Knicks fan. I'm not leaving the Anish corner. No worries. We're with you Girinho."

Magnus: "Even if you get kicked out of the arena(?)."

Jan: "Especially then. Not if they make me use a different entrance [though]. That's crossing a line."

Magnus: "That is crossing a line."

[cut-away to Peter: looks completely blank.]

The chess/money politics of the 1993-200? period makes it difficult, for me, to really have much engagement with the strongest players of that time. I really have no idea how future people will regard even Kramnik and Anand (let alone the tourney winners). Prior to that essentially every champion was a huge personality (*cough* Euwe *cough*). But, obviously, Magnus being on youtube all of the time, being Dr Drunkenstein etc etc brings him much closer to us,

Magnus: < 5 minutes straight trash talking Timur >
...

Jan: "[more candidates matches/games] ... tire the challenger out."
Magnus: "I don't need that."

I see he's taking lessons from Giri's school of trolling here.

However this troll is in terribly bad taste.

Radjabov was the only one in all of this with the ****ing foresight to see what would happen. If he isn't included in this event when it resumes then he should sue FIDE for +millions and bankrupt them.

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

Grischuk is right.

Everyone is way too polite to each other. The fans crave some RIVALRIES, and I don't mean the pedantic trolling of one Anish Giri.

This should be pretty fun:

https://chess24.com/en/read/news/mag...per-tournament

Quote:
The Magnus Carlsen Invitational sees the World Chess Champion challenge seven of his biggest rivals to a 2-week, $250,000 battle. The 8-player online event starting April 18th will fill the current void in top-level chess, and indeed sport in general, allowing chess fans to get back to watching the best players each day. Every move will be streamed live on chess24, complete with commentary in 9 languages.
List of competitors not yet officially released, but apparently Giri revealed he was invited along with Alireza and Fressinet. MVL and Ding are in according to the Guardian, with Caruna having been 'approached'.

First day of the Magnus Invitational happened, and it's looking like an honestly exciting time for chess. Very excited to see how Alireza will do after beating Magnus in their most recent confrontation in the Banter Blitz Cup. Rooting for Magnus to find a hold vs this insanely tough field.
