Take a guess on how many draws, wins or losses will Magnus Carlson and Fabiano Caruana have in the World Chess Championship? Feel free to add which rounds Magnus Carlson and Fabiano Caruana have their draws, wins or losses on.

I wish I would have seen this earlier....to answer now, seems like cheating.

Somewhat, but it would be nice to get people guessing early on and having a statistic on it. Then, comparing those statistics with later and final results of those games. Anyways, it's better late than never, sometimes.

So far between these two:

Carlsen won ten, Caruana won five, with 18 draws-

so if  Carlsen has gotten a little weaker with age  and Caruana a bit stronger with knowledge and experience

the ratio may change a little

bit not much

Magnus should be on top for a few more years yet I would think

I wish I would have posted sooner - but what do yall think about the World Championship?  I actually think Caruana is gonna win

Carlsen: 5 wins, 3 losses, 4 draws

Caruana: 1 win, 2 losses, 7 draws

All draws except for the last game: Fabiano Caruana wins! Yeah just like how the NBA finals was boring.

Funny how "boring" in chess and in a lot of sports has such different meanings. If a chess match between two of the best players in the world ended 4-0 it would be anything but boring.

If the game all end in draw. Like, all twelve game matches, the players begin to play the rapid chess tie break.

I think Snarlsen will win the WC with one win in round 4 and possibly two wins if Fabio has to start playing for a win and throws caution to the win.  

Of course anything can happen in a match, but one prediction I am confident in making is that the WC match will be a dull affair along the lines of Karjakin/Snalrsen. Lots of dry theory and lots of draws.

Another possibility is that Snarlsen might play to draw all the games to take advantage of Fabio's feeble play in faster time controls. 

My final thoughts on the WC is 12 games is too short to decide the WC. It should a minimum of 16 games. I hope if we get a new FIDE president they start to make some changes to bring some integrity back to the game.

I think you misposted Round 11 as a Draw, instead of a Win.

What's this "Snarlsen" stuff?

AussieRookie

Nickspic should bring some integrity back to the game.
