  Domdaniel: An early resignation, but a correct one - there was only going to be just one result from here.

Maybe people will now understand just how strong Carlsen really is. Ding Liren has been having good results, has played some brilliant games, and yet Magnus blows him away in this and other games.

  OhioChessFan: You can argue about the best player ever in classical, but in blitz, it's Carlsen. And I doubt there's a close second.
Nov-14-17  frogbert: Right now, with two 5-minute games remaining, Carlsen has won 15, drawn 11 and lost 2 (two!) games out of 28.

Peculiarly, after ten 5-minute games, black has won 6 and white none. I guess black is ok.

Nov-14-17  dehanne: Looks like a game from Fischer.
Nov-14-17  gokusano: It's with the present crop,OhioChessFan. If you include the past, adding Fischer to the equation, it is debatable.

Especially if one considers Herceg Novi Blitz 1970.

Against a field including challengers to the WC Bronstein, Reshevsky, Korchnoi, and world champions Tal and Petrosian, RJF posted a very nice +17 -1 =4 score.

  thegoodanarchist: And I forgot WC Smyslov! He played in Herceg Novi 1970 as well.
Nov-14-17  gokusano: From 1970 to 1972, Fischer is a virtual monster. But then again, it's a different era.

Stylistically, I don't think it is much like a Fischer game. The comparison is still valid, though -- this match-up is very like a Fischer match from '71-'72.
