    Anand said Nepo is more up and down than Magnus.Magnus is more consistent.It will be interesting to see how Nepo responds to the loss.

    What a shame.
    Yes it was an epic game. I watched the replay, with Svidler/Kramnik. I'd rather watch it live, but watching the replay has the benefit you can speed it up (I usually watch on 1.1x speed). Longest ever game in a WC match apparently, passing Korchnoi-Karpov 1978 game 5 (124 moves), which was drawn. https://www.chess.com/article/view/t...orchnoi-karpov

    Well, there should at least be one certainty in Game 9. No Anti Marshall from Nepo. We will find out finally what else he has prepared for this match.

    Will he persist with 1.e4, Magnus has never lost a WC game to it.

    That's right, so will he persist with 1.e4, Magnus has never lost a WC game to it.

    Here is a little bit of interesting information about the match: https://en.chessbase.com/post/world-...2021-the-arena

    Quote Originally Posted by Chessbase Article
    The tickets are priced at 95 UAE Dirhams (23 Euros / 26 US Dollars approx) for the general and accessible category, whereas the VIP tickets are priced at a whopping 1900 Dirhams (457.50 Euros / 517 US Dollars).

    The ticket prices also include a complimentary audio system with earphones to hear the official commentary which can be carried inside the auditorium, and access to ‘standing room inside the commentators area’. The VIP tickets also give the additional access to ‘8 reserved seats in front row of the commentators area’, and to VIP Area in the Foyer, with complimentary ‘VIP-level catering’.
    Everyone can read the entire article for themselves, but what do others think about these two items.

    1) No ability to buy a ticket for the entire match. They could price the 'match' ticket at an amount where if the match only goes 12 games or so, the organisers can make some extra money, but for the ticket buyer, they gain certainty that they can attend each day. Of course, we as knowledgeable fans, know that with 500 seats and also the VIP section, it is not going to sell out each day, but still, if you as a spectator have travelled to the match, I would think that you would like some certainty by being able to buy a match ticket.

    2) As stated in the article, the tickets for each day are only for the match and do not grant any access to the wider Expo. I think this is a big miss by the organisers. Given that the marketing of both the Expo and the World Championship have been clearly linked, to not offer Expo access tickets seems a rather curious decision.

    Yes, Magnus knows his customers well.

    Ian switches from 1.e4, Magnus having never lost a WC game to it, but does not avail him. Now it's a bloodbath. Magnus won't be rememberd for drawing his way through title games, that's for sure.
