    FIDE World Champs Carlsen vs Karjakin, New York, 11-30 Nov 2016 [POLL ADDED]

    Wall Street Journal has posted:

    The reigning world champion, Magnus Carlsen, who defended his title against India’s Viswanathan Anand in the World Chess Championship of 2014, will be on hand to play a yet-to-be-determined challenger in a 12-round match from Nov. 10 to Nov. 30 at a New York location that also has yet to be finalized.

    Agon, the commercial partner of FIDE and the organizer of the World Chess Championship, had previously said that it wanted to hold the 2016 World Chess Championship in the U.S., with Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York emerging as preferred sites.

    Ilya Merenzon, CEO of Agon, said Monday that he is in discussions with a number of New York venues, including the World Trade Center and other Manhattan locations.

    Kirsan Ilyumzhinov has tweeted the link to this so I think we can safely assume it is true!

    Match has been confirmed for the South Street Seaport in Manhatten. I am glad the Trump Tower idea was abandoned.

    I note that it is the first time in chess history that both the holder and the contestant of a world chess title are still in their 20s!

    And we have a mutlitmedia-styled broadcast (for those with fast internet).
    All we need now is some music/dancers, and Short and some side-kick (Smurf?) doing adlib commentary like the T20 cricket.

    I was wondering what the bookmakers were thinking. A few are offering odds - I won't mention links but those sufficiently interested or desperate should be able to find them.

    Magnus is paying $1.12 to $1.16 (for a $1 bet), and Sergey between $4.80 and $5.50. Converting the odds that I found to percentages and scaling to total 100% averages out to about 81:19 to Magnus, which sounds like a not unreasonable estimate.

    The optimal betting strategy is probably to put $10 on Sergey at 5.50 and 47.41 on Magnus at 1.16. For a total outlay of 57.41 you will get back $55 whoever wins, a loss of $2.41 or 4.2%. This compares favourably to what you would lose on casino games or pokies and you can say that you backed the winner.

    I don't really mind, I belong to that ancient generation where we had to sometimes wait 2-3 days
    to know the result of the game (let alone the moves) before the late Peter Parr published it on SMH!
