    Less than a month to go! Thought I'd put the poll up.

    I think Magnus might stumble this time. I'm cheering for him, but after Caruana's sweet Olympiad performance, I think he is slightly the favorite, he has momentum. But Magnus will win the title back the very next time!

    Caruana is a wild card in match play, I believe he has no experience at all?
    Chess well played is imagination, calculation, observation, experience and memorization in order of importance.

    The logo is so weird. I guess they are expecting a close match.

    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    ↑↑ Rather creepy.

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    On the positive side...Logos for the WCC matches usually go unnoticed....this one did manage to attract some attention.

    Ι change my prediction.
    Magnus wins by 2 pts.
    Magnus 7 - 5 Fabiano.
    That's because I am not sure about the "dead rubber" situation
    in the case of 6.5 - 4.5 which I initially predicted!

    Yes, I follow analysis by Grischuk and Svidler… Move 18 and Caruana is like 35 mins behind on the clock!
