Carlsen is getting (past tense) sooooo arrogant. After game 1, from Wiki...

Carlsen's opening choice was recalled multiple times in interviews and the post-game press conference, in part due to its uncommon reputation, but also because its name resonated with Donald Trump and the recent United States presidential election three days prior. Carlsen said that if he had known how many questions he would face over his opening choice, he would have played something else.

A case could be made that Magnus Carlsen should have lost the tournament. He entered Game 10 needing a win with 3 games remaining - he was down a point. In Game 10 :

* Sergey Karjakin missed an easy draw (perpetual check).
* Carlsen touched a piece (pawn on f2) he did not want to move - in competitive chess, once you touch a piece, you have to move it. Neither Sergey Karjakin, nor the tournament director, called him on it.

Is this another case of blaming the "officials" :P :lol:

Sergey Karjakin could have called him on it and Carlsen would have been forced - so SK has no one to blame but himself.

Hes right about chess not being a sport but its hardly boring

Golf on the other hand is definitely a sport. I played all sports minus hockey and played them all very well. Golf was/is the hardest to learn.. Its likely done more damage to my back than football has done to my knees or ankles

Bowling is a game as well. Anyone can hit a ball with a stick and anyone can toss a ball down a wooden floor. Not sports, games.
Not everyone can lace up the blades and play hockey. Not everyone can play football, baseball or basketball. Soccer you at least need to be able to run. Hell fishing takes more talent then golfing. Not everyone can cast. You can golf with no arms and no legs and swing while hold the club in your mouth. Doesn't mean you'll be great but it's possible to play. Plus golf SUCKS!!

If golf is a sport then I guess Poker is as well. The old, Poker In The Front and Liquor In The Rear. The Bones rock and roll from Germany have a cd by that name. haha.

Golf just plain blows so there's no interest. Golf is a waste of good land and water features.

No women issues as I'm happily married. Chess sucks arse as well.

Chess and politics, this site just rocks it hard. hahaha.
