I like how you put this in the combat sports section :D

These are difficult for me to watch while working as I need to focus on the board, but I do appreciate chess. Last vids are only 15 mins I'll check it out.

I thought we were gonna set up some games among the crew here? Did we have a place to hook in to play?

Thanks Luigi, interesting stuff

Monday will be Fabi with the white pieces vs Nepo, which will probably end up deciding who wins the whole tournament.

^A chance to challenge Magnus, the world champion. And probably money too.

Tons of action today. Nepo drew Fabi using black pieces, which basically secures his victory. Now its impossible for Duda to win, Rapport, Rajabov, and Firouzja would need to win 5 games in a row to win, an astronomically unlikely feat, and Hikaru and Ding would need to win at least 4 of the remaining 5 games, also astronomically unlikely. So its basically just a two horse race now, and Nepo secured his full point lead over Fabi with only 5 games left.
