Well that's a 'trivial' mate in 31 or something gone missing already ;) (Round move 60.). Could be at this a long time with increments.

30 odd thousand watching the chess 24 YouTube. The other 599 million viewers must be on chess bomb.

I couldn't be bothered researching the joke, so I made up the 600million figure, hope agon will forgive me.

Carlsen wins game 3 so Karjakin needs a win with black to take the match to blitz (he was 2 down with 2 to play v Svidler in the WC final and won eventually, but even so surely that's a big ask now)

Carlsen got over his disappointment with (rapid) game 2 pretty effectively, it has to be said :shock:

Stay calm now, and his birthday will surely have a happy ending.

Strange blunder. What did Karjakin miss?

Something, obviously :)

But that is the drawback with his approach, one slip and you are gone.

My only idea is that he didn't appreciate he could block the way to g2 if the queen came to the g-file.
