Chess World Championships Who Wins and what is the score?

I'm for Magnus 6.5-5.5 it will be close

First game was a draw, second looks drawish right now
Good prep by Magnus, although probably not a line he will go back into i assume, probably just a one-trick line that wont work again
Nepo seems to have a great ability to get himself out of trouble with really creative defense ive seen in a couple of his games

Btw, for whoever is watching the matches. Chess24 has 2 streams on youtube, one is a deep dive with more complicated analysis from Giri and Judit Polgar.
The other one is for general audiences with less technical commentary

Chess.com has Caruana and others covering it on Twitch

      I was in the corner when it happened. Rookie error.

      • But when you gifted it to your gf, did she respond with "Yass Queen!" …?

          She didn't appreciate the joke, so he had to pawn it off.

    • King move buddy, just the one?

  • How's Kasparov doing?

    Kasparov is in exile in New York since 2013 for being anti communist and Putin denouncer

  • Magnus looks shaky I think it's 50-50 or slight favour to Magnus now
