Originally posted by @greenpawn34It will be interesting to see how long Carlsen, Fabiano and Karjakin stay at or near the top of the chess world. Getting to that point is difficult, staying there is even more so.
Carlsen will not be under estimating Fabiano who like Karjakin and himself were prodigies.
Carlsen was the only top player who tipped Karjakin would win the 2016 candidates
which resulted in 12-12 tied W.C. match.
This time he said Fabiano was most likely to be his challenger.
I think Fabiano has a better chance than Karjakin but it all depen ...[text shortened]... , you will make a blunder.
Caruana has to be there when the 'sometimes' happen and spot it.
Originally posted by @greenpawn34Yeh that blunder against Anand in their second title match springs to mind. Even i spotted that!
Most likely some kind of pay-back from the chess gods. You will be brilliant but
sometimes...just sometimes, you will make a blunder.
Originally posted by @greenpawn34what about Hou Yifan? some players think females aren't any good !!
Apart ofrm the the three mentioned there are quite a few good young players knocking about.
Giri, Wes So, Ding Liren, MVL, Yu Yangyi , Nepo,
and Wei Yi and Duda (both still in their teens and both in the top 30)
