Just 10 minutes ago, the game finished. Another stupid flippin' draw. A very boring game :( I did have a few variations in the game once again
I think this game was better than Round 1. I think Carlsen had slightly more chances to break some open lines though :/
Still... psychologically it's even and there are 10 more rounds to go!
Yeah, this game was better than the first, but still, VERY BORING
True that haha :)
I think the players are just getting warmed up. I'm sure Carlsen will bring his creative genius into play sooner or later
And the same with Vishy
Those who complain about the draws and say it boring obviously don't know anything about chess.
I can almost totally agree with you there kco (even though I'm kinda contradicting myself, oops).
Chess is a game where there aren't always winners and losers.
Have you ever heard about the first two obligatory start draws in a wcc match?
Nice opening surprise for magnus today, and tommorrow he will fight for a win with white!
yes so too was I surprised with the Caro-Kann haha. I'm gunning for Carlsen!
Okay, they just weren't what I was expecting. I expected them to be better games then that. There will be atleast 2 brilliancy games
Carlsen and Anand are strong player. We can't expect looseness, we can wait only.
The Old Man vs Gold Wiz Kid.
Sooner or later all that pre planning draw games will end and Carlsen will catch him and finish him off. He can run but he can not hide.
The Old man fooled the Chess Community last year now way is going to trick us again with this pre planning draw games. He is the common factor.
People aren't taking risks or chances because they might lose. It would be better if there were more games because people would take risks and a loss means less and the person can come back. it would be better if there were more games because people will take risks and the game will be interesting
No Risk ..... No Reward!
Agreed, we will just wait for those Brilliancy games
Chess.com should have just a chat box, with no video, and the postion, so that the players can discuss what is going on. There's nothing wrong with commentry, I just think it's a good idea to have another link with that
