What about Kasparov? Sorry for so many questions, but I'm really interested in.
After becoming WC in 1985 he only played 2 matches
Against Timman 4-2
Against Miles 5.5-.5
Then came the 1986 WC (12.5-11.5 against Karpov)
Later he played in the Olympiad
And finally: Brussels 1986
Looked ridiculously easy for Garry. Thanks SocialPanda!
By the way, in the 1986 Olympiad Kasparov won 7 games, draw 3 games and lost 1 game, that game was against Seirawan.
The Soviet Team for 1986 was:
The first reserve was Vaganian.
The final effort to win the tournament; Carlsen vs Caruana,my analysis :
Not a successful tournament for the top half finishers of the Candidates who ended up in the last places here. Mamedyarov lost five of his six games against the top three, while Karjakin continued his drawing streak (16 games now):
Nobody finised with a negative score except Mamedyarov. That's unreal!
"What does that mean?"
According to the tiebreak rules of the tournament Nakamura finished third, Radjabov fourth and Karjakin fifth:
Karjakin's drawing streak could have been 21 games long now instead of 16 if Aronian had been a bit more cautious in the last round of the Candidates. His next chance to continue the streak will be in Norway next month.
Carlsen had a dig at Karjakin at his last press conference in Shamkir where he implied that Karjakin strangles the life out of games ..I think this is another example of gracelessness from the world champion who had 2 chances to beat Karjakin and couldn't do it. Karjakin knows it is better to draw than to lose.
Yes. And it's completely his fault the first time he played Karjakin. Carlsen tried Aronian's tactic to play fast when opp low on time. Fortunately didn't manage to succeed this way.
