Watching all the time. Should be a fantastic tournament.

Ding's slow start shouldn't mean much after his win today.
Grischuk getting into time trouble because of naps is awesome
Caruana is the player to beat but I just feel some major upsets coming in the next few rounds that will keep this tournament close all the way to the end. I have to be honest, I am straight up cheering for Hao.

For great game breakdowns and all around solid analysis, I subscribed to this channel several years ago and his content has steadily improved. He will likely cover just about every game in this tournament.

Been watching this everyday, Ding seems to be combative as hell, if he manages to win the tournament surely we can expect to see the world championship match with a lot of wins instead of 12 draws like last time

Some Interviews from today:

Giri and MVL

Ding - No Caruana, he took off. I guess he was just pissed at his performance.

Hao and Grischuk

Nepo and Alek

It's hard to predict the outcome of the tournament now since both favorites (Caruana and Ding) haven't been performing their best, probably due to the pressure. Right now I'm rooting for MVL, I don't think he's the strongest players but he's my favorite since he plays very actively and tries to win with both white and black.

I love to watch Fabi play, but I don't know why he didn't prepare 18. Qf5. He clearly is one of the best players in studying the board at home, its a shame that he lost in that way

Treshhoping ding liren or mvl win they are probably the only people that could challange magnus.

I think Nepomniatchi and Caruana have the best chance to win the title. Last time both Caruana and Carlsen had chances to win in a few games but the opposing player just defended extremely well. Caruana needs to win in the classical time control since he's a much weaker rapid and blitz player. The same can be said for Liren.
MVL has the best chance to beat Magnus in the rapid or blitz portion, his record against Carlsen in classical is 8 losses, 2 wins, and 18 draws. In rapid his record is 10 wins and 17 losses (it's still better than the other candidates). Nepomniatchi is the only one who has a positive record against Carlsen in classical time control with 4 wins, 1 loss, and 6 draws (2 of those wins were in 2002 though). But in rapid he's lost to Carlsen 7 times with no wins.

LilSnot-snip-

caruana is a slave to the engine and theory, one day magnus is gonna play 1.h3 against him and he's gonna shit himself
edit: wait I think that happened already iirc, or maybe it wasnt against fabi but someone else idk

I hear the most recent rumor/gossip is that Nepo has developed a steady cough and has not been feeling well the past week. Fuck

I thought they were being tested twice a day? Surely if he had corona-virus it would've been reported by now.

I read the same thing before the tournament started, I hope you are 100% right.

The live commentators were the ones talking about this rumor going around and it was on a few websites of people covering the matches. (Photographers and such) Best case would be that it is just rumor/speculation of paranoid people around the tournament.
