    FIDE World Champs Carlsen vs Caruana London 10-28 Nov

    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.

    ↑↑ Rather creepy.

    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!
