Couldn't agree more Chris
I found the final very exciting and great commentary on Chess24
Sadly some people on this forum seem to determined to be negative about everything

An article from CNN correspondent, Ben Morse, states "Nearly 70 million TV and online viewers tuned in"
I wouldn't mind seeing that figure broken down

TWIC final report
The event also managed to raise $50,000 for the charity Kiva. What now though? Carlsen will play the over the board event the 8th Altibox Norway Chess tournament 5th to 16th October with Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Levon Aronian, Anish Giri, Alireza Firouzja and Aryan Tari, perhaps the only over the board superGM event of the year since the lock down apart from the Candidates tournament.
