    Caruana has not been that consistent lately. I think these days, other than Magnus - nobody is really able to stand out of the rest of the pack. In the current situation - Nepo is probably the most worthy contender of all.

    Caruana and Ding had set themselves apart as the 2 and 3 in the world but both have not been at their best for a while so I think you are right, Nepo is probably the most worthy contender of all

    Fabi had reclaimed #2 briefly, but lost it again after his loss to Xiong.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    4 draws today and the 5th game looks to be heading that way too.
    Fabi - MVL was a very interesting game.

    MVL makes a last round draw to ensure at least equal first. Potentially could be caught by Fabi (black vs Rapport) or either winner of So-Dominguez.
