Theres already a thread you turd. Sit down and relax. Ill take it from here as far as analysis. We know a match is happening and that one of the players has a chance to win. But thanks for that input. You must be exhausted.

Didn't Magnus use his weakest defense (Sicilian) in game 1 and still draw?

In game 2, instead of developing his queen's bishop, the move right before it should have been knight to d2.

Sicilian isn't Magnus' weakest defense, he doesnt have one. He went with the sicilian to avoid Fabi's preparation, no other reason he wouldn't go Najdorf.

Chess is racist. Why else would there be so few good black/south asian/mestizo players?

Well for one that isnt even true, but secondly there are very few Germans and Brits at the very top level as well. Russia is historically the world chess power, as well as small former soviet countries like Latvia, Armenia, Azerbaijan.

Today India is producing a ton of child prodigies, on the heels of Vishy Anandís reign as World Champ over the last 5-15 years.

Itís really all about where the sport is popular that produces the greatest number of strong players.

They should have a rule that whoever uses less time in a draw wins the match.
