  • Not sure why so many people saying Magnus doesn't care, does that mean you think Magnus just thinks he is going to win whoever it is? The last 2 world championship matches have been even after 12 games, both going to rapid play to decide the winner. Carlson hasn't been winning everything lately, Nepo could be a very tough person for Magnus to play. Magnus cares I would say, he just can't do anything about who is his next challenger lol.

  • I think there will be a lot of decisive games and less draws than usual (in comparison to previous WC). Nepo obviously can set up some genius attacks, but on the other hand Magnus is brilliant at finding the best move so it won't be tiny positional advantage vs tiny positional advantage at every move (No offense to Karpov :)

  • Nepo always bring high quality games against Magnus, BUT those games where Ian seems to be winning are the one where Ian makes daring risky moves. In WC many players suddenly become Mr Solidus Solid, which means Magnus will be in his comfort zone and also comfortable championship, while Ian will be out of his elements and new to the championship. This could be the most intersting WC where Carlsen is the champ or the one where Ian just crash and burn early on.. or he plays solid and my bet is he lost 2 games against Magnus.

  • Really looking forward to this match. Magnus is obviously the man, but Nepo also plays some of the most fun chess to watch. Expecting a great game

  • Please don't butcher Ian's last name with the wrong stress placement. Ask any Russian-speaking chess player for the right pronunciation or just call him by the first name only.

  • I bet he wouldn't have said what he said if it was Giri going against him. One of the life's greatest pleasure would be to see Anish and Magnus getting into a twitter war leading to the World Championship.

  • Stylistically, Ian's screwed. His kind of game is centered on dynamism at the cost of sound play, while Magnus is all about sound play. BUT, I bet we have less draws this time around and the potential for some brilliancies.

  • I feel bad for Anish and Caruana. I think this year is the best chance for them to challenge Magnus because, in 2023, the new era will begin. Alireza will dominate the candidates. Pragg will follow soin after. So, yeah!

  • I wish the championship got to be updated on its format, it should cover all 3 levels, not always 12 classical matches to determine the winner while faster time ones only to break the ties

  • Why should Magnus be happy?

    SpawnSpawn20 dager siden
  • The question is quite tricky. "Are you happy that Nepo is your challenger?" If he says he is happy, it's insulting to Nepo and kinda implying Magnus thinks Nepo will be a pushover. If he says he is not happy, it shows Mangus is "afraid" of Nepo. Not Unhappy is the correct answer because it shows he literally doesn't even care, lol jk.

  • I have a feeling Magnus will dominate. Sure Nepo has a plus score, but playing someone 14 times in a row is completely different. Magnus should slowly, but surely exploit his weaknesses. I mean Spassky had a plus score against Fischer. I think he was undefeated, actually.

  • Interviewer: So Magnus, the 4000+ rated computer won the candidates and will challenge you for world champion, how do you feel about that? Magnus: Yeah, compy played well, but I'll be sitting next to the electrical outlet, so I get this feeling I'll be in control of the matches and ultimately the championship!

  • The statement by Magnus that "He is a very aggressive player and gives his opponent chances" is, in part, psychological preparation. I am unaware of Nepos Endgame skills so my bet is on Magnus.

  • You have to read between the lines a bit here. Magnus is NOT happy that's it's Nepo. He can see the silver lining -- the match will be "exciting for viewers", because Nepo has legitimate chances to win the title away from Magnus. In fact Nepo might even be the favorite here -- he has a positive win rate in classical format against Magnus. When Magnus says that he is "not unhappy", he is merely phrasing his words to say that he respects Nepo and thinks he can give Nepo a fight. If he said he was unhappy, he would be saying either that Nepo will 100% crush him or that he will 100% crush Nepo -- and Magnus doesn't believe either of those things. If Magnus's opponent had been Carlos Magnusen, Magnus would have said he was unhappy about it.

  • What it means is , He is happy that it is not Fabi because Magnus has as very hard time getting any advantage against Fabi . Fabi calculates so well . Sadly , Fabi played poorly in the candidates . Nepo is a well deserved candidates champion and if he can create some wild positions he may have a chance against Magnus but getting those positions are very hard against Magnus . Magnus will win the 3rd game and coast to the victory !

  • Ian will stop magnus era and become the new world champ

  • People say he doesn't care. Not true. He doesn't give a flying fuck is a better term.. Having said that Nepo can be a surprising tough pkayer to play against. He has a positive score against Magnus in Classical Chess.
