    It is now 3-0 to Carlsen after Nepo successfully managed to trap his
    own Bishop. He was doing OK before it happened. Indeed though a
    piece down he still had some, albeit coffee house, swindling chances.

    Some commentators were saying it was the worst blunder in WC history 😒...

    I find that hard to believe but maybe it's true.

    Nepo's strategy of trying to get Magnus low on time by making fast moves was a horrible strategy.

    Haste makes Waste.

    It looks like the pressure of this event is wearing heavily on the challenger.

    Agreed.

    He also gets up from the board too much.

    A few games he had good positions and then he leaves and comes back and makes moves that cause the position to get worse.

    Magnus is just too good.

    A Giri or Ding Liren match would have been better 🤔
