    depth.But that's never stopped me before.

    A big thank you to HikaruShindo for the pictures.

    man I could not suffer it, it was the worst, Mango Carlsen right into a rook and pawn ending and him manoeuvring about until his opponent made a mistake, I fell asleep, chess24's Gustaffson and Svidler fell asleep and were actually on a coffee break when he play b5.

    Karjakin in an after match interview.

    Journalist– Are you disappointed now?

    Karjakin – No.

    Journalist – Why not?

    Karjakin– Because...I think of chess only, not stupid questions.

    Brilliant!

    Yeah, and he still attended the conference knowing that he'd get asked such questions... guess he's a better man than Carlsen.

    Evidently Carlsen was at the conference but left early when others didn't show up.

    I'm in agreement with Carlsen walking away from the press conference.
    It was bad organisation. He appealed, the fine is 5% not 10% of his purse.
