Funny.. against stockfish im always in bad shape
At least it is inefficient to think long. Why make blunders after move 35 if you can make them after move 14 ?

Also one should think mostly only in opponents time unless opponent is a speed chess champion.

The short time control games were more interesting and exciting than the long time control games :)

They should just play Rapid 30 10 games for the WCC 2017.

Not sure he saw "the whole thing", as in.. the mate-in-12 or so if black plays Bf8 instead of Kh7 😆
Of course he calculated to the last move. IF Bf8 you play Rxf8+ followed by Rxf7+ Ke8 Rf8+ with an easy mate pattern afterwards.

Carlsen must have seen the whole sequence when he played Rc1.

So, are we just going to ignore that he went from a tablebase win to a draw in the second game?
Yes, because I did not even watch that game :-)

(Personally, I had no clue how to do it. But, I'm not such a good player.)

The queen sac he definitely saw. The follow up to Bf8 im willing to bet he trusted his instincts eheh

I agree the last games were the most exciting. Very good.

Karjakin lost because no communist party supporting the team.

It's over. Karpov, Kasparov were the last.

I think he lost more so because he was trying to hold (Carlson), more than he was trying to win. By hold, I mean hold him to a draw of course.

I mean relatively less money available, worse training, worse selection.
