    In this case it was already lost anyway before the pawn ending. 38...f5 appears to have been very bad.

    Shankland might manage to qualify for the Candidates and fail to make the US Olympiad team if they continue to select purely on rating.

    I think he will make the team.
    He only has Caruana, Dominguez and Nakamura ahead of him. Maybe Aronian as well, but he has not transferred yet.
    Nakamura is quite likely not going to play, he has spoken about he was given a chance when some older players could have clung onto their place and how he might let a younger player like Xiong go instead.

    Yes, my post is wrong, and Wesley So. Still I think he has a reasonable chance to make the last spot.

    It will be good to see the women's semi finals start tonight. They are going to be great contests.

    Shankland is looking like being crushed by a Karjakin attack so talk of him making the Candidates seems to be very premature. Winning tie breaks against Karjakin is going to be very difficult.

    Good illustration of how careful black has to be in the KIA - all the queenside play in the world does you no good if your king is getting hacked.

    Yes, Shankland was even able to queen on a1 and then got mated. So off to tiebreaks for them with Karjakin being the favourite.

    Fedoseev now seems to be winning after Tabatabaei blunders. Again pressure in a long ending induces a blunder.

    Shockingly careless to ignore threats in that situation. What failed to see 2 moves ahead?
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    No it was just a fancy alternative to resigning.

    It is ridiculous how lucky Karjakin is time after time. Shankland did not play the way he usually does.

    Only weak players can use luck as an excuse.

    Karyakin is a very strong player after all. All Shankland is good at is theory. Once he is to use his own head, things move where they are expected to be.

    It looks like the final between Magnus and Sergey. Both are amazing players!

    I would be happy with a final between Carlsen and Karjakin. Both are amounst the top tier of chess players and Karjakin is a very worthy Candidates player.

    Then that would leave 3rd place and second Candidates spot between Duda and Fedoseev, not sure who I would prefer to win.

    Still Karjakin has to beat Shankland before any of that can happen.
