    Carlsen is scared, and pretending to be protesting to cover up for his cowardice.

    4 game match doesn't seem like enough. What's the tie-break?

    "41. Nf2 Aronian clearly leads a healthy way of life. Beside him at the table there’s probably a glass of carrot juice. That’s why he plays much better than us coffee lovers. " 🙂

    Aronian missed the win after 7 - hours game against Grischuk, Mamedyarov and Kamsky had advantage but played bad in the endgame

    I've always what you do during a 7 hour chess game. Those cats are booked up till move 20 in a lot of lines, so they get about 20 minutes a move.

    Scottish Arbiter Alex McFarlane is giving an excellent running
    account of the candidate matches from his side.

    Two way mirrors, drug testing, sniffer dogs, mobile phone jaming...

    A one point the players could briefly hear the commentary on their games.
