Seeing them live on screen it looked clearer than following just the game. That was crazy. Hopefully until next year, as for what this tournament is concerned.
that were some nerve wracking minutes indeed, but in the end we can only be very proud of both dutch players.
bit of a shame the final outcome had to be decided by amrageddon, a big event like this deserves a better end.

Does we talk about candidates?

Nepo's victory makes Caruana almost need to win with Black tomorrow to avoid Russian's knocking on Magnus door. Even when also plays white against MVL. His hardest game could be against Ding, but it can be very possible to be played with the achievement acomplished.

Let's see tomorrow what happends.

Pretty impressive games so far. Caruana-MVL. Yesterday I thought MVL had good chances but Carlsen said not really ... So now the clock is ticking indeed for the players that want to catch up with Nepo. For example Giri needs half a point more than Nepo because he lost in the first round, ages ago.

I can recommend Twitch as well. Many commentators, like Carlsen, Polgar or other grandmasters [Only Registered Users Can See LinksClick Here To Register] is one of them

I always have cheered for Anish between the top players, and seeing him play in such a high level makes me sooooooo happy.

Come on Anish.

Yeah well done Nepo, allthough he got little resistance from Wang and Alekseenko he did a great job. Anish must have known this was a tough round vs Grischuk.
