After yesterdays game, 7 hours 45 minutes and a Carlsen win, it will be
interesting to see how Nepomniachtchi’s reacts. He may go for a quick
strike back or play safe to recover and recuperate. One thing is for certain,
if Carlsen senses Nepo has been shaken and is unsteady, he will go for him.

And before you start writing in and asking the answer is ‘No’
you cannot buy my chess waistcoat. I saw a picture years ago
of it being worn by an arbiter and contacted them to see if I

First of all the eagerly awaited result of the anagram competition.
I asked for the best anagram of ‘Carlsen Nepomniachtchi’ and the
winner who came up with best answer was the R.H.P. member
‘Charlie the Racoon’ with his entry: ‘Nepomniachtchi Carlsen.’
Charlie wins a sets of door hinges and 16 self tapping screws....
I was conned by a street shark who sold me a ticket for game one starting
on Wednesday 24th November. That was the date of the opening ceremony
for the important FIDE people to make speeches and everyone applauded.
