    Many of them are a bit out of practice at this format. It's been lashings of blitz and Armageddon (often online), knockout mini-matches, and novelty formats and scoring systems designed to randomise the outcome.

    Of course they're professionals and they get what it's about, but in practice it must be disorienting. Not surprising if they occasionally seem to have the concentration span of a goldfish.

    Nepo - Radjabov: an Open Catalan in which Nepo was content to liquidate down to a dead drawn endgame. Duda - Caruana: I am just looking at the position after 25. gxh4, and Caruana seems to be in big trouble with both of his minor pieces out of play. White has a simple plan: Rg1 and Ng5.
