That Justus seemed to have played a nice blitz game against Magnus. Not sure why you are acting so shocked by this, GM's lose to lower ranked players in blitz games from time to time. Its blitz. Now had Justus beat Magnus in a tournament time control game then we'd have something to chatter about! :)

Almost full game here: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=6Oj2m5suRCY&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D6Oj2m5suRCY

I've beat players much stronger than me in blitz.  However unlikely, to win 1 blitz game is always possible :)

If Carlsen were out for blood I'm sure Williams would lose the next 50 games.

It's great bragging rights for sure, but there's no need to ask "what do you guys make of this?"  It was just a friendly blitz game.

does Magnus do better in tournament time control games?

He's the highest rated player in the world by a lot (2700chess.com) and rarely loses to the top GM's in the world, so I'd say yes! :)

so do you guys think magnus might of made a few mistakes in this game

Well to lose you have to make at least one more mistake than your opponent made. :)

waffllemaster

Yeah, you can make 10 small mistakes and win after your opponent makes 1 big mistake... these games are some of the most frustrating to lose in all of chess Tongue Out

There is a big difference between making a mistake and walking into checkmate in my opinion. Anyway, to each their own phrases and terminology. :)

So Svidler lost 48.5 pounds in preparation for the Candidate's tournament I hear, anyone have a recent picture of him to compare? I'm told he looks like a new person now!

Oh, it was a blitz game. NVM

Thought you were talking about a tournament timecontrol game.

superking500

so maybe justus is a better talent then carlsen?

What? It was one blitz game, it doesn't mean anything of the sort.

Estragon

That's not even a blitz game, there is no clock.

superking500

so this game was a classical tournament type game instead of blitz

Scottrf

I think a casual game.
