Out of curiosity if the two games finish 1:1, is it simply a draw or is there a decider?

It’s a draw and you both get 2 points each.

When we get to finals if it finishes as a draw it goes to a decider; both teams nominate a player and they keep playing 10 minute games until one person wins one.

Tim Evans Beard, we’ve tied against 10th, but we have played both 1st, and 4th. Maybe we are not that helpless after all!

On Playing 1. P-QR4

Magnus has recently started a game against So with 1. a4. I’ve found an old video from agadmator in which he did that as well.

From what I took from the video, Magnus was probably sober this week!



Seriously though, I have another point in mind that I wish to discuss. My impression is that 1. a4, as crazy as it may be, it would simply defer the initiative to black.

Since the game continues with the roles inverted, then it shouldn’t be surprising that one can win after that move. After all, it’s possible to win with black.

It’s just harder to win with black…

As white, I try to have a few of these different openings up my sleeve, because there are many 1.e4 or 1.d4 Andy’s.

Can’t say I play 1.a4 often though :p

Is anyone following the Candidates?

I can’t watch the entire day due to the Timezone (each day starts at 11pm here), but I catch the first couple of hours then watch the games and some analysis back the following morning.

I was surprised that Alireza lost after his incredible efforts yesterday.

Very impressive by Nepo!

Nepo has separated himself from the rest, looks the clear #2 at the moment.

Will Magnus play Nepo though? Rumor has it he’ll only defend against a limited amount of options.
