In the tiebreak,

Magnus, under time pressure goes down in the endgame. Duda wins. He will face Karjakin in the final. Carlsen will fight for third versus Fedoseev.

I've been in and out of watching almost daily and, FWIW, Magnus just looks burnt-out. Not happy. Duda is no Magnus, but I think he's got a shot. Consistently ahead on time and if it goes to armageddon (if that's still on at this stage?) could be trouble for the Son of Norway. Very subjective on my part, true.

Just saying,

Indeed.

It's on my list to analyze. I was surprised too.

Vacantly scanning the World Cup and thought, why not play over M.Carlsen - S.Martinovic (1:0) ?

After 58...Bf8-d6.

I was somewhat surprised to see the engine saying "? =" after Carlsen's next move. Miscalculation? Loss of concentration? Overconfidence? It goes to show how difficult chess is for humans. And then Carlsen won anyway, which shows the same thing again.
