Gukesh is almost certainly the new challenger for WC..... The Fabi vs Nepo match should be decided soon. Fabi had good chances but failed to convert in a tricky endgame.

Well, it seems like they are going to keep carrying on in a dead drawn match for some time.... But I dont see any possibility at all for anyone to win. IG they will try anyway, because a draw means both are out of tournament standings (they are tied second, both can only reach gukesh by winning this match)

When is the world championship match?
It'll be India vs China
If the ccp play some mischief in LAC like doklam during summer....
Then the championship match will be billed as the v2 of spasky vs Fischer match.
It'll be super interesting

There was no coverage of Gukesh's achievement by the Toronto Star, and the tournament took place in Toronto! Had that been a Chinese, a Pakistani, or a Sikh, the picture would be on the front page, at the very least, a long write up with a photo of the player.

Almost every International GM is stunned by how calm and collected he is for a 17 year old.

Here he is, mentioning his mother telling him tales from Ramayana and Mahabharata which have helped him mentally.
