Chess

The game has gotten more interesting. Once Carlsen made a poor move on move 34. Someone needs to make a mistake or it’s not fun.


#83

Yes. It’s one reason computer chess is so boring.


#84

Yes.


#85

Looks like a draw. Fabiano is going to have to play better. He was never ahead as white.


#86

Almost 7 hours old and over 100 moves. I’m rooting against Carlsen even more now.


#87

He’s pissed he didn’t win this game and not giving the draw. It is 7:45 over there. Time for dinner!


#88

Game 2. Caruana has made 13 moves in 5 minutes. Carlsen has taken 36 minutes.


#89

Carlsen is on move 15 and has taken 50 minutes and counting.


#90

58 minutes for 6 moves for Carlsen and that includes a 14 second move.


#91

Is taking time helping Carlsen?


#92

Doesn’t seem to be. It’s pretty much even, but Caruana seems more agressive.


#93

Well he sure is taking his sweet time now.


#94

Rook d1?
Or b1


#95

I would have played R-d1, but naturally computer engine likes b1, lol.


#96

Oh no that would set him up for checkmate v


#97

He’s going to lose that pawn


#98

Black needs to eventually play R-B8. White has a better bishop, but his pawns are spread apart.


#99

Q-e5 What will it hurt? It also sets Carlsen up for checkmate.


#100

looks like a good move. white queen has a nice line on h7


#101

Oh I guess that works too
