I thought this was an excellent report which shows how even a dull game can be interesting in a match context


I strikes me, btw, that this is the opposite of the Short - Kasparov match for which the games were extremely interesting but the match - settled by game 4 at the latest (and possibly even game 1 depending on your point of view) was rather dull.

There have only been a handful of dull draws in this match IMO, its just unfortunate that one of them was the supposed "decider".

I agree. Somebody mentioned to me the other day that they thought half the games were interesting and that was a good percentage. Whilst agreeing with the sentiment, I thought the estimate was much too low.

I've enjoyed this match, but without the live video feed, something has been lacking.

Where is everyone watching it tonight? I'm not going to be giving money to AGON because I find them so damn offensive, I guess there is no way for me to watch with the video feed? which to my mind is important and even more exciting for the quick games.

YouTube on the Apple TV here although flagging Karjakin to win the title seems unsporting.

Might have been interesting had Karjakin taken on d4 wih the bishop

Kind of but it goes blurred for no obvious reason and the game display (as opposed to the analysis display) is too small. Also no scoresheet.
