There is a chance of a Magus - So rematch.

Honestly I am trying to understand how Dubov lost 3 games and still qualified.

That guy's got champ blood.

Before which we are likely to see a So- Nakamura rematch, and then if Nakamura does win a Magus - Nakamura rematch,

It's a win-win.

Watching a Magus endgame is like watching Picasso work.

Magus in trouble. One game down and 2 games to go. He has to at least tie one and win the other to go to tie-breaks.

Dubov is a fucking hairy chested man.

If robots had no soul, they would be Caruana. If they had souls, they would be Nakamura.

Nakamura and Aronian straight-up brawling.

In a lot of ways, Dubov is forcing the Magus to play like baaaack in the day, by punishing academic arrogance of the enemy sacrificing material and position.

I think these new kids, and a revamped Nakamura, are going to make life harder for Magus than the old guard did.

The "end of history" blokes.

That's why boa constricting the magus is generally a bad decision.

He chased him down being a knight and a pawn down and fucking checkmated him.

All of the 4 favourites, Nakamura, So, Carlsen and Nepomniachtchi, got knocked out.

this is one hell of a tournament.

A fucking bloodbath really.

You don't often get to see an Aronian - Vachier-Lagrave match so that's cool, and the Dubov - Tadjabov match makes you feel the colliseum is operational again.

This Tadjabov is a real warrior, these games are reallya wesome to watch.

Btw Vachier-Lagrave is a constant Championship contender, he's just not particularly known for responding well to rapid time formats (yes 15 minutes with 10 seconds added every move per side is considered extremely fast in chess).

Actually wait, Dubov lost 2 games, and since he was 2 games down yesterday I don't know if that means he gets knocked out, or if it's like tennis where each match is only one "set" point.
