    Apparently Nepo will not be allowed to play under the Russian flag due to the doping sanctions:

    I expect he will cope with that. Better to get it sorted now than after the match starts:

    This has been common across all sports where Russian athletes have been competing in World Championships or Olympics. The athletes can still compete if they can prove they have been 'clean', but are not allowed to compete under the Russian flag. Instead they are represented by the International Neutral Flag for that sport.

    Therefore, Nepo will compete under the Fide flag.

    ... The World Champion, who has reigned since 2013 and been the world no. 1 consecutively since 2011, doesn't think Nepomniachtchi would have won the Candidates if the event hadn't been split in two.

    Because he lost the last game in the first half of the tournament. He rarely plays well after having lost. Now he managed it eventually and has started to become more pragmatic.

    Carlsen says he considers Nepomniachtchi, the world no. 5, to be “a wild card” and still thinks the no. 3 Fabiano Caruana and no. 2 Ding Liren would pose a bigger challenge for him.

    I would say they are the best. I thought beforehand that anyone else would be a good outcome for me, and I still feel that way.

    In the poll, Michael I clearly does not think much of Nepo's chances
