Dubov-Radjabov and Aronian-MVL start tomorrow at the same time!

 

Magnus Carlsen

On a lighter note, Daniil just wrote me to cheer me up after beating me, and apologize for his celebration on air. Told him I did not see it, and it would upset me more when people stop celebrating after beating me. Congrats to a most worthy opponent and great dude!

 

Dubov telling NRK he is “embarassed” by becoming so emotional after the win, but he thinks it is bigger to beat Magnus than to win the tournament.

Magnus Carlsen

People may play have good days or bad days against me, and I against them, but after another collapse the bottom line is that I’m in a deep funk right now, and it’s really frustrating

Dubov: “I was much more interested in winning this match than in winning the whole thing!”

So far it’s Levon Aronian and Daniil Dubov who are through to the Airthings Masters semifinals!

Peter Leko: “The clock is all that matters here… apart from the position, of course”

 

Hikaru Nakamura I may have lost the match today, but I’m no loser. During my twitch stream we raised $355,720 dollars for the @CARE charity. Kids will eat. People will be saved. That’s a win in my book. Thanks for all the support!

 

Meanwhile Radjabov has gotten a perfect start beating Nepomniachtchi in the first game of the day. Will we get four white wins?

Disaster for Ian Nepomniachtchi, who blunders on move 19 and has 15 minutes on the clock but nothing to do:

 

“Super-tense” position in Dubov vs Carlsen, as David HowellGM suggests the world champion is “semi-bluffing”.

Disaster for Ian Nepomniachtchi, who blunders on move 19 and has 15 minutes on the clock but nothing to do:

 Trying to avoid the chaos with 19…Kh8? looks like a clear blunder by Magnus under huge pressure on the clock and on the board! Daniil is winning:

 

Howard Staunton

Dubov’s games glow like a flame, consuming everything in their way. Carlsen’s glide like a river: clear, gentle, harmless. The chess of the first scorches, that of the last scarcely warms.

Just when Magnus seemed to be over the worst an incredible finish sees Daniil Dubov beat Magnus again!

“Ng4 BOOM!” (Leko) and it looks like Hikaru Nakamura is losing the game and also the quarterfinal! If Levon wins he’s already in the #AirthingsMasters semifinals:

“An epic fight!” (Tania) But Dubov holds on and still leads Carlsen 1.5:0.5 with two games to go. Will Hikaru & Magnus both be knocked out on the same day?

 

 

27.Nc5?? Rxc5! (“Rc5 GG” – Vidit) and Magnus is going to level the scores!

Disaster for Magnus Carlsen who blunders in a winning position with 34…Qe7?? and after 35.Qd4+! Daniil Dubov goes on to win the game and knock out the World Champion!

Carlsen is OUT of the Airthings Masters!

 

Aronian & Dubov are already in the semi-finals. The last two players will be decided in playoffs:

Magnus Carlsen and Hikaru Nakamura have both been eliminated from the Airthings Masters in the quarterfinals!

Aronian & Dubov are already in the semi-finals. The last two players will be decided in playoffs:

Radjabov vs. Nepo (already live!)
MVL vs. So

 

After a 104-move battle Wesley So draws MVL and completes his comeback. They now also go to a playoff! Two 5+3 blitz games and, if still level, one 5 vs. 4 Armageddon

Radjabov spots 21…Be3!! and is close to forcing Armageddon!

MVL topples yet another Berlin Wall – So now needs to win on demand to force Armageddon!

Dubov-Radjabov and Aronian-MVL start tomorrow at the same time!
