    Magnus has a win expectancy of 6.5 out of 10 this tournament. He would have to score 8.5 to break 2900.

    He makes it look so easy.

     

    I'm proud of myself that I thought Qxa4 was a terrible move and it would lose the game, then I looked at the annotation and it had a ?? Smile

    Anand is strong but for Carlsen the strongestness is required.

    Mamedyarov was already lost when he played Qxa4 so the question is how big a blunder it was, maybe he preferred a quick loss with some chance that Carlsen would miss some tactic rather than an endgame grind that just lost slower.

    43. Kf4 isn't much of a mistake either, it wins very quickly without complications, even if it isn't the move the engines prefer.

    Black had one of the worst Bishops I have ever seen, especially at such high level chess. Shak may as well have been down a piece.
