    I think this one may get very interesting. How good of an endgame player is Wang Hao?

    He seems to have a knack to end up with opposite bishops, 3rd game in a row:)

    This is the 1st time I've seen him behind on the clock, he's normally much faster than his opponents.

    Position looked bad until it turned into a rook ending, I would guess a draw now.

    All minors have been traded off, so today's endgame lesson looks like it will be rook endings. It looks drawish to me at the moment (after move 26), so it'll be interesting to see what Carlsen makes of this.

    Looked like Carlsen was in some trouble there, but looks like he's in the clear now.

    Carlsen draws losses and wins draws. Wang did play very well though, so it will probably be drawn.

    Nakamura looks to be in a little trouble against Aronian

    Wang-Carlsen 1/2-1/2.

    Caruana threw his game away with 2 moves and resigned shortly after.

    Drawn. They have to be asking themselves "How much of a middlegame edge do I have to have to beat this guy?"

    Carlsen with White tomorrow against Nakamura. Kinda hoping Nakamura loses today, so maybe he'll be out for blood tomorrow.

    Probably +2.0 advantagem computer wise, carlsen is ridiculous, and we could never dream to beat him.

    And now he's refusing to resign a hopless position... just sitting there...

    Naka in terminal trouble. Looks like he's recalculating over and over and reaching the same conclusion.

    He looks like he's about ready to call it a day.

    Anand seems to have let a decent advantage slip to almost nothing.

    He must have calculated the pawn ending as winning, surely? Doesn't look it. Naka resigned.

    Naka sat there a rook down for at least 10 minutes before resigning...

    Guess he needed to be sure there weren't any fortress-securing moves... (Were there any??)

    Anand's soufflé completely deflated now. Hou Yifan is a smart cookie.

    I didn't realize that older guy walking around was Jan Timman. I haven't followed GM chess for a loooong time and didn't recognize him without all that hair. LOL
