I feel I could be on my own in this, but is anyone else watching the fast paced, non-stop action filled World Chess Championship series between Carlsenand Nepo? First matchpredictably ended in a draw yesterday, but was an interesting game with Carlsensacrificing a pawn for quicker development and 2 very active bishops.

Carlsen has the white pieces for the next match and I think hes going to score the first win of the tournament and start to pull away. Oddly enough, theyre not showing it an any pubs around my way, so Ill be plonked in front of my PC from 12:30 to watch the actionunfold.

What i know about chess I could write on a postage stamp. I will stick to football and horses of which I can pretend to know slightly more ha ha

The only place I could find that had chess betting was Bwin. Luckily I didnt sign up as the match ended in a draw so atleast I saved a few quid!

Congratulations to Magnus. Game 6 was an incredible win and being a 5 time champion is hard to believe. Also thanks to Nepo for some very compelling games in the beginning of the match.

Game 6 was the real turning point. Longest game in championship history I think I heard. Magnus is a master of the end game and seems to have a knack of grinding out a win from drawn positions. Really took its toll on poor Nepo.
