    Disappointing loss to Naka last night. Hopefully, Magnus will win the decider.

    Horrible mixed metaphor: "mouth-watering final".
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. 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

    As far as online blitz is concerned, Naka appears to be the most pragmatic player of all!

    In a few hours we' ll know. Naka is a great player indeed but you can't underestimate that Dubov guy! Actually they 've both been there done that before.
    Hikaru is much more experienced though. Well, a final is, a final is a final! No predictions here, I just go for a nap for 2-3 hours and then watch it!
