@Mark-Pat Joe-Bill Dinosaur "i didnt like him that much" and "i didnt like him" Those two sentences are not only identical, but their meaning is not identical either.

damn man i just wanna give Ian a hug after this one, brutal... he is such a great opponent for Magnus but how do you play against basically a human computer? i appreciate that they tolerate these press conferences. Nepo is a top notch person, seems like he has a really good sense of humor, the way he is handling this, speaks very highly of his strong character, hopefully he does not take this too hard. (Maybe like it seems how Karjakin took it really hard?)

@Michel Schweinsberg You do realize these questions are meant for the common folk, right? They aren't supposed to come up with amazing complex questions that titillate their minds. It's for the millions of common folk who wonder "I wonder what he was thinking here?" Or "I wonder how that loss/win made him feel". So they ask. People have been doing press conferences in all different sports for years, and these same basic questions are the ones casual fans respond to the most. It's basically a formula at this point that they nailed down. Is it possible people may know more about how to do their job than you?

Let’s face it, as poorly as Nepo played this game this is easily the most entertaining world championship match in recent history. Game 6 was amazing and could of easily gone the other way. Nepo might have done better with white in game 7 but is human, after all, and must of been exhausted. It was always clear that Magnus is in every sense of the world an exceptional athlete, but Nepo has shown a brand of creative play and character that the chess world desperately needs, especially in the classical format. Cheering for Nepo tbh!

Nepo is struggling now, this game shown that he was mainly playing against himself not against Magnus. Coming back from this requires nerves of steel that only the likes of Fischer have, I fear Nepo lacks the ego to believe at this point.

Fischer didn’t have nerves, he pulled a Staunton and wouldn’t even play Karpov. Kasparov vs Karpov from 84-85 was the epic WC story of nerves. Fischer indeed. He was brilliant no doubt, but hardly a pinnacle of fortitude. I suspect you’re right about Ian though sadly.

Magnus seems to really break his challengers. Karjakin skips a lot of big tournaments, Caruana admitted to losing motivation after losing to Magnus, and Nepo seems close to a breakdown. (Anand is a special case because he wasn't at his peak when he lost it to Magnus.)

Not sure if what you said is true. Fabi has maintained a very good rating even after his WCC. Nepo has the courage/patience/professionalism to show up and answer all the press questions even after losses. That only means that he is very much capable of bouncing back in his career. He might end up on loosing side in this match, as it looks today. But, I am sure this WCC is not the end of what is going to be an even brighter career in the years to come.

I'm rooting for Magnus, but I do hope Ian gets one back just to see a good fight. Making it to the championship match is no small feat, for sure. Blundering in a critical moment must feel extremely painful, but he's gonna recover from this. I kinda wish the match was longer, it would be much more dramatic, as in a 14 games match a mere 2 game lead seems like an impossible thing to overcome. I don't know who said that Kasparov would never apologize for a defeat like Ian did and that it's a sign that he feels defeated. Comparing two different personalities like that is unfair. Kasparov was a toughie from the Soviet Union, a more toned down version of Fischer (who was a very odd person). Nepo seems like a really nice guy and he can do whatever he wants. Fair play to both. The respect each of them has for the other is visible. Must be tough for Magnus not to seem cocky, as tough as it is for Nepo to not have a complete breakdown. I think he would have shown up for the press anyway but the fact that he's facing Carlsen is even more of an incentive for him. He taught everyone a lesson about gracefully handling a defeat. And not a lot of people know how to do that.

When you visualise the moves on a board in your head, the positions get seared into your memory. Sitting at the board and staring at it visualizing moves isn't the same which is why they often look away from the board when they think, and when they get up and walk around they've got the board in their heads and they're still calculating.

Part of it is they're the ones who ARE thinking about all the possibilities for the game during the game because that's how they calculate their next moves.

idk how to feel about ian. i mean i find him amazing for answerring these questions truthfully and respectfully even after such a horrible loss, but at the same time i find it disrespectful how he's barely ever on the board, it almost feels like he doesnt wanna be there and magnus is competing alone

@Mica Chakraborty Agree with you completely. Though Nepo lost, I still like him for the human being he is. Showed a great character by attending the press. Magnus did not show up when he lost to Karjakin in 2016.

Maybe you’re new to chess, because it is very normal to move around. Even Caruana explained recently that you don’t wanna look at the board 100% of the time and sometimes is good to walk around and stuff

That is not at all related, you are allowed to be away from the board, and moreover, the players are playing to win, and for some thinking away from the board allows them to make better moves. It is not at all a sign of disrespect playing for so many hours trying to play such that you are comfortable, and where you got the idea that Ian doesn't want to be there, that is outrageously disrespectful to a player of his caliber. Of course he wants to be there, he has worked his entire career for such an opportunity.

@Ugly giant bag of mostly water you mean to say that Magnus is afraid of facing the press and that's why he is able to win games. Come on.. I do admire Magnus ability to play the solid chess he plays. Along with that, he should have the minimum courtesy/humility to perform the regular protocols post game, no matter he won or lost. No one is greater than the game of chess. It's by the behaviour one becomes great, not just by winning games.

@Ananth Melavarige S that shows the winner mentality, even though it may seem petty of him. In a radio interview he said his world collapsed by the humililation, how he could show up in the world championship and play that bad. That way of thinking is the reason he's been at the top for so long.

@Ugly giant bag of mostly water Agreed. Being forced is one thing, but still you have to show up and face the press (you know how the media is, nowadays). By the way, Magnus did not show up after his loss against Karjakin in wcc2016. That shows the difference between Nepo and Carlsen.

@Ananth Melavarige S he is forced by his contract to show up. If he wasn't, he would already be at the hotel.
