The current World Chess Championship match between World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen and challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi should be ended immediately.
It is obvious to all the challenger has gone way past “tilt” into the land of “meltdown.”
For the safety of the mental health of Nepo the match should be ended. The popularity of the recent Queen’s Gambit film caused much interest in the Royal Game.
It could all be obviated by the sight of the challenger, Ian Nepomniachtchi, being taken out of the playing hall in a straight jacket while babbling incoherently. It is more than a little obvious Nepo has been shattered.
Mr. Nepomniachtchi will not win another game and may not even be able to draw a game unless Sven Magnus Øen Carlsen takes pity on his opponent. I write this after checking the biorhythms of the players. Below you will find the biorhythm of Nepo, who is in a triple low period approaching the bottom, where he will remain for the next week. Nepo’s biorhythms are about as bad as it gets, biorhythm wise. Do you think Nepo can come out of the tailspin? Does a snowball have a chance in Hell?!
As for the Champ, his Intellectual biorhythm is in the high phase, where it will be for the following four days before he transitions from the high to low phase. Then Magnus will be in the dreaded triple low phase for four days:
The format of the games left much to be desired. This was made apparent by the 136 move sixth game of the match, won by the Champ. Unless one has played tournament Chess it is impossible to explain what a game like that will take out of a player. Back in the day we would play 3 classical games, meaning 40/2 followed by 20/1, on Saturday and be back at the board at 10 AM for more of what some said was “abuse and punishment,” which could be another 8 to 10 hours, and WE LIKED IT! The problem is that many, if not most, of the administrators and pooh-bahs involved with Chess do not play Chess, yet make decisions which affect the millions that do play Chess. The World Chess Championship should be played every other day, if for no other reason than the possibility of a game lasting 136 moves. The WCC should be 16 games, because that is what World Champion Mikhail Botvinnik said, and he should know because he played seven matches for the World Chess Championship, and the 1948 World Championship tournament. There should never have been any quick-play game(s) to decide something as important as the World Chess Championship. The result has been to cheapen the game, causing it to lose some of its luster and mystique. If a match of classical Chess ends in a tied score the Champ remains Champion, with the player who scored as many points as did the Champ earning a rematch one year later. Just sayin’…
