      Anonymous

      Not a single one stands a chance against him, it's pretty clear. They're a cloud of prep monkies, magnus would've won a few of their drawn positions by now, fabi vs nepo he would've won

      • 1 week ago
        Anonymous

        really really bad games again. fabi and rapport played a bunch of odd moves (Rf1 was especially weird) and then gave an obvious repetition

        two dry petroffs... that attempt to avoid theory in the sicilian by rapport... some catalan weirdness... don't really understand what's going through these guys minds other than nepo who is obviously just protecting his early lead. must still be nervy

        commentators won't talk about it because they don't like to get down on players and it's still very early but god damn have these games been horrific. in terms of accuracy, fighting chess, theoretical relevancy, pretty much anything you'd want from chess

        i think so, MVL and giri not being there is fucking with the players performances. those guys bring the best out of the rest of the field

        draws are obviously normal and not a bad thing but the nature of these draws is concerning. and radjabov - ding is just a total fucking joke
        >radja plays the most unambitious line (as usual despite the fact he's a strong tactician)
        >ding equalizes with zero effort
        >radja plays a bunch of obviously bad moves to the point where he's dead lost positionally
        >ding doesn't understand how to capitalize
        >turns into a theoretically dead drawn endgame
        ding will start playing better than this because it's almost impossible he'll continue at this level. has to be a psychological thing he needs to settle down

        usually there'd be so much more to say about the games but that was a truly garbage round even worse than the last one

        magnus has more prep than all of them combined from preparing for multiple WC's with the best team ever

        Magnus said he might boycott if he doesn't get to play the Zoomer

        can't wait for split world title again

        >can't wait for split world title again
        would never ever happen over that, only happened before because pros got tired of the russian stranglehold over FIDE. no longer relevant since it seems like emil sutovsky has freed himself of mordor's chains

          Magnus fights for the win at least though. Even in drawn positions he will play on and the shitter usually blunders eventually. These guys are just too scared to fight for a win. Usually the candidates is better than this because only coming in first matters. Hopefully that will factor into the remaining rounds

                true, and the other side of that coin is that maybe caruana will want to avoid the tie breaker and take more risks this time to win in the classical portion, which would make it exciting

    I'm probably just a brainlet, but for OTB top level classic chess those seem to be some nice openings with interesting play.

    Even Radjabov is not just going for an easy draw

      I looked at that position, saw that blocking with any piece or pawn results ina slightly uncomfortable and decided that white must a little worse.
      Turn on the engine, it's +0.6, and top move is Kf1.

      You can take solace in the fact that they only play that way because the engine tells them to. They aren't finding the moves OTB, just trusting the engine

    radja's ability to find forcing lines that go into drawish positions... entire sequence from move 13 to move 32 or so looked tactical and complicated to us but it's just all forcing into a drawn endgame. sort of impressive that they found that line i'm assuming it isn't all prep. talking about

    ali - fabi could have been a very theoretical catalan but ali avoided it with Qd3. then he does a speculation exchange sac' on d7... our boy has become obsessed with weird sacrifices out of nowhere. really don't understand what White does there

      If Nepo wins I hope Carlsen refuses to play, don't want to see a repeat

      no way magnus does this
      it will make him the most hated man in chess history

      8 is fine but Candidates should be in knockout match format like they used to be.

      Because casuals like me only watch two tournaments per cycle and this is the only one where they can showcase a range of players.

      how does fide handle it if Magnus refuses to play against Nepo? Pretty sure Nepo won't get his title for free, right?

        Nepo will play #2 (Fabi) and Magnus will be disgraced (won't happen though because Magnus needs the money)

    Normally I think it's BS that the reigning champ at chess gets a free pass to the final but this year the standard below magnus is so shockingly bad that I'm convinced he'd +4 the rest of the field if he had to win the candidates to defend the title.

      If Nepo wins this then goes on to crush Magnus in the final, then you guys will be eating humble pie.

      He will and all of these reddit crossposters will pretend they always rated Nepo and they knew Magnus was washed after X performance

        He blew too many favorable positions.

        Maybe he get there again, but he will blow it again to make it a draw.

      I am just glad Nakamura is dying a slow death. So fucking enjoyable.

      C'mon, get fucking real, will you? he stopped playing a long time ago, he never had a chance back then when he was active giving his all, even less so now...
