    Magnus Carlsen wins Game 9 with the black pieces, capitalizing on Ian Nepomniachtchi's major blunder on move 27.

    With five games to go, the defending champion is leading by three points: 6-3.

Man Nepo is an absolute class act. He must have wanted nothing more than to go crawl into a hole. Serious respect for how he has conducted himself.

@Sean Hunter It is perfectly normal to have a think yes, but like fabi said its not good optically when you see only one player sitting at the board 90% of the time whereas the other player makes a move and steps away.

@Omid Yousefi Bro here is the funniest part, you yourself have probably never played on a chess board much less of this magnitude... When you're losing a match as badly as you are you sometimes want to make it harder for your opponent to keep winning. Trust me I know the feeling.

Isaac Webb

@Jake Bame I don't think 'absurd' was meant as disrespect toward Ian. When chess players look at their board while it's not their turn, they disregard possible moves by their opponent that set up easy counterplay. I don't waste time waiting for an opponent to walk their queen into a royal fork, and at the GM level, as soon as you see that c5 sets you up for c6 to trap a piece for easy capture with no compensation, I imagine you forget that the possibility exists for that move to be played and focus on their strongest possible moves. So when you see a GM play something that you've already recognized as an obvious mistake, I imagine it would be a shock to realize it was really happening. It might even feel absurd.

I'd have to give it to Magnus for this one. He was trying his hardest to be respectful when addressing that c5 blunder by Nepo(admit it, that was a HORRIBLE blunder for a Chess Championship game where you are up 40+ minutes). Plus, being baited with questions, like being asked about adjusting a f*cking Knight for 0.8 seconds and not saying "Adjust" when his opponent isn't even there, and if he felt sorry for his Nepo. What kind of questions are those🙄?

At this point it’s very hard If someone tells Ian how much he dominated in games 2-5, that he just lacked the conversion technique He could gain confidence back and give Magnus a gr8 fight for his title But it’s really hard now, a person can still bear pain of physical injury and play gr8 chess, but if a person is broken mentally, I don’t think he stands a chance. I just can hope that Ian doesn’t get trapped into depression or something, that would be too much on that poor soul!!

@Gustavo Moreira saying that 'Bro Go study chess' as if by studying we will learn how 2750+ rating moves are played, does not make sense. People like us who are not even rated above 2200, can not fathom why certain moves are played by 2750+ rating player. So by going to study chess will not help. Atleast I always need someone to explain to me why a move is good for certain game. Understanding depth of game at 2750+ level is not in my capability. At the same time game 6 was initially Table based draw, which went for 136 moves. Which means it is under one of the best chess games from the point of view of end game theory. Also, game 4 and 5 were rated 2 and 3 centipawn close to engine moves by stockfish 14.1. So yes, those are some of the best chess games even Nepo has played in this tournament. Do you understand being close to 3 centipawn to an engine game. What does it mean? Noone needs to study chess, if anyone see interviews at the end of game 4 and 5, will understand that Even Nepo has displayed some of the best ( Close to 3 centipawn perfect game) chess in the tournament. I am a Magnus supporter. But being a chess enthusiast and a logical guy, I can certainly say that Draw games should also be seen beautiful. They have reflected that Nepo has produced some of the best chess in this tournament except last 2 games.

The amount of pity towards Ian I see from the comments (not just here, but pretty much any video concerning the last couple of games) is just nonsense. He is not only a professional chess player, but one of the best in the world. Losing is part of the game, even at this level. His opposition is arguably the best to ever play. The amount of pity he is receiving could be even more detrimental to Ian than actually losing the Championship.

There's a difference between losing at any tournament, and losing at the world championship. This is the high point of Nepomniachtchi's career, the moment he has been building up for possibly his whole life. Every other tournament has been to gain elo, to be stepping stones to the candidates, and then to the championship. The stress building up is probably something we ourselves will never get to feel. To lose in this event you have built up to your whole life, it must feel absolutely horrible. Every loss, a thrown-away chance. Remember, he was playing very solid chess up till game 6. It is very clear that the mental pressure of the losses is getting to him. Yet still, he remains calm and hopes for another chance. We aren't showing pity, we are showing admiration.

@Bernardo Albano he asked why did ian make a mistake. the question was rhetorical at best and stupid at worst. by definition a mistake is not intentional. there's no why when there's no intention in the first place.

@Bernardo Albano he literally asked ian if he didn't see that c5 was a blunder. that's kinda pointless and uncalled for. i mean why else did ian play c5?? i feel maurice is sometimes a bit inconsiderate towards players that made a mistake in the game. this definitely isn't the first time, there are many clips of gms annoyed by maurice's inconsiderate questions. i get that he means well, but he needs to phrase sensitive questions better.

What about Magnus? Imagine being asked if you feel sorry for your opponent when he made a blunder while up 40+ minutes which he could use to think. And all the other bait questions they were throwing at him(e.g.that knight adjust).

Poor Ian Nepomniachtchi is struggling with nerves i think. The two previous World championships Carlsen really had a hard time. and it almost always ended up in Tie. when he won the first Match after a few ties Ian Nepomniachtchi has Crumbled in some ways. But the way he Handles the Press conference is amazing proper sportsman.

Nope, not me, at all. That move, at this level, is absolutely terrible (and he admits that himself). What's also terrible is that he didn't even gave up when returning to the board: I don't think that was really respectful. Some might say that the pressure he faces is huge, and that's true, but we're talking about the best players in the world and the World's Championship, so we all should expect the highest possible level, not a 1800 ELO blunder (I'm talking about c5 specifically of course). I agree that Nepo's reaction at press conference was right but nothing extraordinary to me: he just faces the truth, and I don't understand why people are so impressed by that.

I appreciate Maurice trying to get Magnus to say a word other than "absurd," like maybe "surreal." For some reason it sounds kinda insulting to say "absurd" there, but with Magnus's explanation I don't think he meant it how I initially heard it.

Vor Monat

@Bryan Currie I think that is very likely the case, based on other comments here. To an English person (of my generation) "absurd" is an inoffensive word with connotations of good humour. For people from other nations (to my surprise) this is interpreted differently. It seems reasonable to me that Magnus's usage of English would be closer to the British/European understanding of the word than an American's. This would explain the confusion/disagreement of people from different countries.

I actually thought saying "absurd" was him phrasing it nicely. He wasn't going to say "honestly Maurice, it was a dogshit move, Ian knows it, I know it, the engine knows it, Sagar Shah knows it, it's not my fault the media doesn't understand chess, maybe if he spent more time at the board he would have seen it", but it wouldn't have been surprising if he said "I was shocked by him playing that because the response to it was so obvious and I'm a bit disappointed by him, I want to feel like I earned my title", and that would have been a lot rougher to Ian than calling the move absurd.

magnus destroyed his patience. nepo moves so fast, while magnus trying to think eventhough he has a move, he consumed his time like he was pressured too much. . or,, he calculates more moves ahead of nepo. ex magnus has 20-30 moves while nepo has 10-20 moves

If the Players wouldnt have to waste their time, recuperation phase, mental+emotional reserves for these unnecessary, drawn out, always the same, unfunny and uninteresting interviews they would definitely perform better and be able to actually enjoy a final like this between each other. Its like interviewing two Boxers in between the rounds in their 1 minute break, where they try to catch some new breath and focus their mental energy for the next round.

Something's happened with Ian. There is no any excuse in a game point of view for such "sacrifice". There was no time pressure and Ian is a superGM for a reason. I don't know, may be he's got sick very bad or has some personal problems that we don't know. I don't think that he's just tired or tilted after previous games, I suppose that there is a deeper, serious reason. Anyway, Ian is a great player, very strong, confident. Only dull persons can laugh at him, think that even an amateur would see this trap bla bla bla, give advice to Ian etc. I will still support Ian, I don't care about his losses, big respect, nothing else.

I disagree. Players, even super GMs, blunder. Magnus himself has blundered mate in one (in a blitz game, to be fair, but still a worse blunder). It's not common, but it's not proof that there's something deeper than he just missed a possibility.

Probably the stress got to him. Maybe he didn't get optimal support from his team after the grueling Game 6 loss. Obviously a player of his caliber should not collapse like this, I hope he will bounce back.
