A pretty checkmate position. You don't often see Carlsen annihilated like this.

Aug-13-20  MordimerChess: Magnus said in the interview he missed Bxh3. Then he missed Rxe8... and then he said he wanted to resign once Ding plays Rf1+

... but Ding went for Qxf4, haha :D

Aug-14-20  joddle: This was kind of a disaster for black. I am a bit surprised that Carlsen didn't try 8... Nb8!? which has been trendy (and has caused lots of white players to switch over to 8. dxe5), but I guess he must have had some prep in his 8... Ne7, 9.. b6 line although it doesn't look very inspiring given how this game went. I think pawn storming the fianchetto in general doesn't work well, and Ding played a model game in combatting this plan. For those interested, the old "main line" 8... Ne7 9. e4 Ne8 10. Ne1 f5 11. Nd3 Nf6 12. Bg5 h6 13. Bxf6 Bxf6 14. f4! has been known to be good for white for some time since Karpov won some nice games in this line.

Yes, I agree. I can see any of Caruana, Ding, Nepo being the next challenger, and I put them in that order of likelihood.

Ding seemed to pull ahead of the (sub-Carlsen) pack for a brief period several tournaments ago, but since then he has often descended back into the hoi-polloi of the top 5.

It's hard to say what will happen, especially with this recent uptick of rapid and shorter time controls (which I am generally in favor of).

Given that Ding is dead last in the World Championship Candidates (2020) with 2.5/7, I hold it highly unlikely that he will be the next challenger.
