Carlsen v Caruana final continues TONIGHT at 7pm

Post by Leonard Barden » Sun Jun 14, 2020 4:31 pm

Since real chess seems to have taken a back seat here, I thought to mention, as some may not know, that the Magnus Carlsen v Fabiano Caruana Clutch International final, world No1 v world No2, continues this Sunday evening at 7pm with the players locked at 4-4.

There are six games to go, each lasting around half an hour, with the last two counting triple points (the Clutch) so virtually ensuring a fight to the finish.

You can tune in to it free and live at https://www.uschesschamps.com/?mc_cid=5 ... a68db44dab with GM commentary by Yasser Seirawan, Maurice Ashley, and Jennifer Shahade.

I watched most of last night's session and it was riveting viewing.

Don't miss it!

Epic battle with Carlsen yet again just edging it at the end and picking up a cool $50K with Caruana having to settle for $35K. Below is the moment of victory.

Magnus Carlsen "Champions should show dominance every time and also dominance in the critical moments."

$75,000 and $56,000 respectively, including bonuses for winning clutch games.

The TWIC report says the maximum possible winnings were $120,000 (first prize + winning every clutch game).
