Magnus Carlsen vs. Ian Nepomniachtchi: 6th game of the World Chess Championship – live! | sport

Game two so far has been the most telling of what could happen with both teams outside of their preparation as Carlsen misinterpreted his attack before Nepomniachtchi played too cautiously at a critical time. Their memory banks and supercomputer backups are in good shape, so the question is who will fare the best as the nervous tension grows acute in the last few games.

Carlsen’s Plan B appears to be to test his opponent’s resilience with low-risk probes, but the mood will change dramatically if and when a team achieves the first victory. ‘Si’ is a necessary qualification here, as Carlsen’s current record for league draws in classic games stands at 19 – the last two against Sergey Karjakin in 2016, the 12 against Fabiano Caruana in 2018, and now five. others. This breaks the record for 17 consecutive draws set by Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov in their “timeless test” match in Moscow 1984-85.
