Nov-30-16  chessic eric: <OhioChessFan: 7 more moves than Game 12 anyway.> brilliant haha
Nov-30-16  lexfourmi: how much is it between each game? this may take forever...
Nov-30-16  Llera: Are there any more tiebreaks now??
Nov-30-16  Absentee: <HeMateMe: with queens off the board, shouldn't the side with the better pawn structure play on a bit?>

Not with 2 minutes on the clock and 10 second increments.

Nov-30-16  PJs Studio: Round 2 starts... 3:30? 3:15?
Nov-30-16  technical draw: 10 minutes break.
Nov-30-16  capafan: How much time between games?
Nov-30-16  ForkedAgain: 10 minutes to make another cocktail...

  Domdaniel: <Llera> All tiebreak games are today. Ten minutes between rapids.

  Lighthorse: 10 minute breaks between games.
Nov-30-16  savagerules: At least Giri, Leko, Svidler, Ulf Anderssen and the late Tigran Petrosian are enjoying this match.
Nov-30-16  PJs Studio: It would've been exhausting for Carlsen to try and make Karjakin flag from this position. Too little play.

  offramp: There will now be a rest day.
Nov-30-16  technical draw: Happy Birthday to Magnus and Fressinet.
Nov-30-16  Absentee: <Knight13: <10 minute breaks between games.> What if someone needs to use the bathroom for more than 10 minutes?>

Then they'd better use those 10 minutes to rush to a store and buy a pack of diapers.

Nov-30-16  Rama: It is time for Sergei to sweat. He can't beat Magnus unless M overextends himself (Game 8) which he is not going to do ever again if he can help it. Play solid is all he can do but we all know what awaits.

  vonKrolock: After this first draw it seems that Carsen is in good shape with his fast moves and in fine mood with his jolly experiments - lets see if Karjakin keep his icy and iron defensive form in the second rapid
Nov-30-16  PJs Studio: Great question. Is there a provision for a pause if one of the players has to drop a deuce?
Nov-30-16  varishnakov: I believe Carlsen will win his two games with the white pieces.

  harrylime: Why are Wc matches now ONLY 12 games ??

I don't get it ?

It's not as if this match has had mega publicity ! lol

Nov-30-16  PJs Studio: Magnus to play 1.Nf3 (?)
Nov-30-16  Atking: As most of this match Karjakin playing "negativechess" waiting Carlsen overreach himself or exchange most pieces even with White when tension arises.

  kevin86: not much here. draw.
