Caruana, Topalov, and Nakamura all have better chances of winning the Candidates' tournament than Anand. Anand's great, but I think the other three will do better in the next Candidates. Of course, I have been wrong before.
carlsen will not because he has the highest rati in the world so if he loses or draws to someone lower than his rating (which is all of us)he will lose rating points
Yes, he can do that when the top 50 are all over 2800.
I'm going to go for no, for either of them. It's too big a step for a generation.
NOT IN A BILLION YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!
If not, so how is it possible that engines like Houdini or Stockfish got over 3100???
They never get tired.
if he can keep his gay status as a secret - and if he dooes not get a male partner for sex and friendship - he can put all his energy on chess - and can reach elo 2934
engines dont have an elo - just a phantasy-elo
i don't think so.
As flawless as Carlsen is, he draws way too much to cross 3000. IMO
When you're 2950, a draw against a "mere" 2820 will cost you major rating points.
That is not to say we've seen the last of broken records from Magnus. He has topped Kasparovs highest rating, at the tender age of 22. He is going to be on top for a long time.
Just like Tiger Woods was going to win nineteen majors, and Dwight Gooden was going to win 300 games, with 4000 strikeouts...
I think if Carlsen passed 3000 elo he would be deemed a nickname similarly to Johnny Manziel: Magnus Chess.
"Just like Tiger Woods was going to win nineteen majors, and Dwight Gooden was going to win 300 games, with 4000 strikeouts."

Dwight Gooden was amazing.
His 1985 year, when he was only 20, was the best year any pitcher has had in the last 70 years!
is there anyone in this forum who can tell us how many per cent of games vs ELO x he has to win to cross 3000? calculate it - and you will see how ridiculous this theme is
