Fascinating end-game here in game #6.

Surely Carlsen forces the W..

Vlad Kramnik: What is the conclusion?
Peter Svidler: Chess is very difficult, and also not a draw.

At move 130, Nepomniachtchi played Qe6. This was the moment the dam burst.

Brutal that they have to go straight from over six hours of play to do the press conference. And then play tomorrow.

Draw backers for game 7 in clover.

Brutal game.

So enjoyable to watch.

I have to take a break every 40 mins from poker as my game v low stakes recs suffers from mental fatigue.

These two playing for 7+ hours having to reference 6 months prep just for the openings, and theoretical drawn positions that are only draws when you find the exact move order every time, for 130 odd moves.

Tal, thought you may enjoy this if you haven't seen it

He's not the player he was, but it's just wonderful to see a Shirov special.
