    This chess thing has really picked up in the last few years. I like how they took an online game and made the pieces and stuff so it could be played in real life.

    Fantastic game, and the kid was always up on time! Magnus must have been having heart-palpitations for the last 20 minutes!



    the end game was crazy, he defended his own pawn while simultaneously attacking the king AND the black pawn while forcing a position which carlsen wasnt too happy to end in. really phenomenal.

    Abdusattorov coming in like an absolute G, calmly pressed all the way then held the pawn into a victorious QP endgame against the best to ever do it. This kid was cold as ice and deserves the title for days. Big up man like Abdu nuff respect

    The protection of the pawn was insane. What a game.

    Is not the first time this kid has given Magnus so much trouble, this time he won instead of a draw. Amazing talent

    What a bloody game!

    You can tell that they came in with the initial plan against either other. Nodirbek clearly wanted freedom of movement and Carlson clearly knew how good nodirbek is at attacking with his knights. The early game for this was so fascinating and shows why they are the best

    Defending that h7 pass pawn was absolutely insane by Nodirbek. A young talent on the rise for sure
