The impressive World Cup run from Magnus Carlsen has come to a complete halt. He has met his match, someone who is around twice his age. Experience prevails in this match.

Congratulations to both Kamsky and Carlsen. In spite of the loss, Carlsen is in the next World Championship cycle for making it to the semifinal. Watch out!

When Gata decided to make a comeback, he told me his plan and he also gave me a time frame for him to accomplish this goal. He is on pace for it. Good luck Gata! You can do it!

GM Kamsky (2714) – GM Carlsen (2714) [C43]
