      @Giffen is Good true, such is why reaching the mythical 2900 is pretty much impossible (for now - rating inflation will make it possible eventually, but it will be a player who's probably not even born yet

      Just think: Now it'll be even harder for Magnus to get rating points, as draws and losses will be more punishing the fewer 2800s there are.

      ​@Shin well, he never waited for a younger challenger.
      if you don't count losses against younger challenger (eg. Kasparov losing to Kramnik, Karpov losing to Kasparov etc.), you'll get quite a few world champions who never lost the crown : ) so in this sense it's nothing unusual.
      Magnus retired from the WC circuit at the age of 32. how many chess champions had already lost their title by that age?? i can think of only two cases in history: 1. Tal (who suffered from serious health problems) and 2. Kramnik in 2007 (he was also 32, i believe technically older than Carlsen, but also 32 so fine). the end.

      The true MVPs of the tournament were actually Van Foreest, Rapport and Pragg tbh...
      It would've been so easy for them to simply make quicks draws or just stop playing because they aren't in contention for top places but their sportsmanship is insane
      Van Foreest won against Abdusattarov and Rapport blundered against Giri which puts Giri in clear #1 and Pragg held the draw against Magnus which stopped him from getting to tie breaks

      @Alex Ponco Yeah an academic paper a while ago showed that it's very difficult for MC to get to 2900, due to the way Elo is calculated, the K-factor. It's on the internet, ah, here "“On the Probability of Magnus Carlsen reaching 2900” - Polson et al (2022) " and unless Magnus gets very hot he only has a 4.5% chance of reaching 2900 Elo.

    It is frustrating because he lost two games in a row in classical which is practically like Halley’s Comet and then of all things draws to Gukesh and Pragg with the White pieces which is practically like a loss. You have to beat players who are rated almost 100 points lower than you especially in Classical and under tournament conditions. Amazing he was only 0.5 points out of tiebreak. Rapport doesn’t screw the pooch and Magnus goes into Blitz tiebreaks against Anish and Nordirbeck even after all of that.

    I strongly believe that in every tournament, wins should give 3 points and draws 1 point. In this way, players won't be seeking draws all the time, making games much more interesting

      I disagree. That would mean that losing twice and winning once is just as good as drawing 3 times. And that really doesn't feel right to me. Drawing 3 times is more impressive than winning once and losing twice imo (and should therefore give more points)

    How is Magnus 3rd I thought he was tied 2nd? What were the tiebreaks that make him 3rd?

    • DrQuatsch
      DrQuatsch Ай бұрын

      SB points. He lost to number 1 and 2, which means you lose a lot of SB points, especially if your wins were against people much lower on the ranking. If you remember two years ago, Alireza could've tied Jorden and Anish for 1st, but he was told to move because on SB points he would've been 3rd anyway, and the tie-breaker was only between 1 and 2. But yeah, SB points decides the ranking in the case of a tied score. Only if you tie for first, there's a tie-breaker match, and only between numbers 1 and 2 if there are more than 2 players tied for 1st.

      @jrcolonial98 i think these tiebreaks would be used to get the top 2 and then the top 2 play for 1st but maybe theres a system for three-way tiebreaks

      @jrcolonial98 1st is playing tiebreaks, everything else is Sonneborn-Berger score which is add up the points of everyone you beat and half the score of everyone you drew

      @Kaspar Paukson would these same rules apply to a hypothetical tie for 1st? Or would they do tiebreaks for 1st, do you know?

      @Dan Chen Liren is 2811 on the most recent rating list. but they're published on a monthly basis, so his current official rating doesn't reflect his performance in this tournament yet. on the next list he will have fallen under 2800. it's not official yet, but it's inevitable (it's easy to calculate, and he won't play any more rated games in January; even if he did, certainly not many enough to lift him back over 2800 :) ).

      At the end of the day he's got nothing to prove to anyone and he just doesn't enjoy the format for the world title.
      Don't get me wrong I'd love Magnus to defend his title but I understand why after a decade of this he'd want to do something else.
      I mean can you imagine how gruelling, dull and monotonous training must be for the title?
      Three months every two years where you have to look at the same openings day in day out, with some minor alteration and just running it through the engine looking for the slightest advantage and then on top of that having to memorize it! Must feel like putting your head in a vice.
      It must just get so tedious after a while, and once that happens I imagine you'd start to lose enjoyment for the game.
      Better to have him playing the formats he enjoys I say, than have him stop playing altogether because he lost his love for the game due to the format of the world championship.

    Anger ("so pissed"), "couldn't sleep," "couldn't calculate"... Then Imagine how he must have felt after losing to Neimann, but with the temptation to ease his pain by [falsely] accusing his opponent of cheating.
    After losing to Neimann, Magnus had most likely NOT slept then either. Even worse; thus, he did not want to play the next day, Rd 4 at Sinquefield cup. It's just human weakness. But he should have apologized to Neimann by now; and to blind followers for using his influence to cause division.
    A Trumpian move...
