    Esipenko should have beaten Dubov in the game of their match but he blew it.

    For Blitz ratings, Carlsen (2892) is closing in on Naka (3000).

    MVL is up a whopping 44.8 to 2838 and #4, following GCT Zagreb Blitz tournament earlier in July.
    Anand up 40.4 to 2825.4 #5 from the same tournament, not bad for an old man.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    At the halfway point of the blitz portion in St Louis, Naka has dropped to 2892.0 also. In spite of outright first position and undefeated currently. He could well have another strong day and still drop below Magnus.

    This has now occurred, and Magnus reclaims #1 in Blitz.

    Rapport (2773) enters the top 10 with a strong performance in Norway. At 25, he's the youngest currently in the top 10, and one of 5 twenty-somethings.

    Alireza is just a whisker (0.1) off world #2 now.

    Also he has moved to #17 in all time rating list, passing Fischer, Karpov, and Nepo amoungst others.

    If he continues to improve he will be a genuine chance in the 2022 Candidates.

    Yeah, absolutely. If he continues on his current trajectory, he'll be the red hot favourite.

    From chess.com at https://www.chess.com/news/view/alir...-to-break-2800:

    Alireza Firouzja Youngest Chess Player Ever To Break 2800

    NMAnthonyLevin
    Updated: Nov 21, 2021, 1:35 PM|
    68|Chess.com News



    While there are currently over a thousand grandmasters in the world, only 14 players in history had crossed the 2800-rating barrier. GM Alireza Firouzja is the most recent addition to the 2800-club after scoring a sensational 8/9 at the European Team Championship.

    At 18 years and five months, he is the youngest ever to do so. GM Magnus Carlsen was also 18 years old but earned the 2800 rating just barely before turning 19. With the win on Sunday, Firouzja is also the new world number-two, behind Carlsen.
