I might change my mind yet again. You have to be flexible in these things
and appreciate those on the inside, the rule makers would have tossed
this thing over and over before reaching a decision....Well I hope so.
I (we) cannot argue against that sudden burst of media interest when the rapid started.
I've been howling for years about the lack of media of interest and then 'BINGO!'
back to scratching my head but I still have my eye on those wretched time increments.
And Carlsen also recognised that time is an issue in today's piece in the Guardian.
Funny to think if in game 12 when ahead in position and well ahead on the clock,
(surely the perfect conditions for ""quick calculation, intuition and instinct."), Carlsen
had pushed for and got the win then we would not have the rapids and a media frenzy.
It's increment clocks we should abolish, those that lean on them like a crutch and are
in favour of them are obviously lacking in the "quick calculation, intuition and instinct." department.
