  Richard Taylor: Another dull and trivial draw.
Nov-16-18  Raul Montanari: Surprising primacy of Black in ALL the games.
In one of the post mortem press conferences, maybe the second, Caruana was asked about this phenomenon and observed that this is a trend in contemporary chess. I think he was right.
Nov-16-18  vonKrolock: <Even Stockfish missed the win with Nf3.> Yes that was a sesse-win...

  AylerKupp: <<OhioChessFan> FWIW, when the top 3 moves all eval the same, that's a strong indicator it's a draw.>

Well, it depends on what the eval is. If the top 3 moves are all, say, [-5.00] that would be a strong indicator that the position is NOT a draw.

Nov-16-18  vonKrolock: They don't play on Saturdays... like Reshevsky and Fischer?!

At what point and by which player? Surely you don't think that Stockfish missed the win after 2.Nf3. ;-)

Nov-16-18  CountryGirl: Hmmm... 5.Qe2 against the Petroff.... Way to maximise your winning chances as White.... NOT :)
Nov-16-18  jphamlore: Hopefully this game jars something in Carlsen and brings him back to full strength. I want to see Carlsen the predator not Carlsen the prey in these endgames.

  mistermac: Carlsen is amazing.
Nov-16-18  Relahara07: caruana can draw it
Nov-16-18  vonKrolock: Yes, during a few moments before the 70th move, there was a forced win ... Amazing!
Nov-16-18  Patzer27: I find it amusing that in the mate in 64 that MissScarlet posted above Stockfish actually misses a straightforward mate in 2 at move 107 which would have cut of more than 20 moves.
Nov-16-18  Appaz: I will wait a little before trusting that mate variation. It was interesting to see how Carlsen, when confronted with the variation by Ian Rogers, immediately recognized at which point in the game it occured.

  MissScarlett: After 6 draws, there's still no rating change for the players on https://2700chess.com/ despite the rating difference between them. How many draws would be needed to make a 0.1 change?
Nov-16-18  rogge: Never a rating change with draw when the rating difference only is 3 points.

  MissScarlett: That's daft. How many draws to bring them level? At this rate, several hundred.

Nov-16-18  nok: <I will wait a little before trusting that mate variation.> I'm sure you will. Just as you claim your boy's giving an endgame lecture, it turns out he's lost. A bit embarrassing.

That makes no sense. Why would the expected mate go from 30 to 36 moves when the predicted move was played?
