    It would be interesting to know how much time they had left on each move. My Chess knowledge and skill is average at best, and I knew after about 20 seconds of looking at it that taking the pawn was not the right move. I’m assuming Carlson had something like 10-15 seconds left?

    Oh, I remember Magnus explaining in a video that he never understood the pawn square rule. He always just kinda calculates the number of turns it takes for a pawn to move. In this instance, capturing the F6 pawn gives black the opportunity to move his passed pawn forward and the white king is no longer in the pawn square in the event that the rook exchange occurs.

    Nepo would give a tough fight in the first few games but I'm worried that if something goes wrong early in the match he'll tilt and play horribly for the rest of the match. I think I would prefer Maxime since he's more stable but he also has a more aggressive style that could put pressure on Carlsen with the right preparation

    This was the first major GM game I spectated on Lichess, chat went nuts when Carlsen went Rxf6. Hell, I'm still very new and focused on watching videos and doing practice drills and even I thought "well, surely he'll start pushing that H pawn right? Oh." I'm not knocking Carlsen; if anything this was a very encouraging game to watch as a new player, as it showed that even the best can make mistakes. I'm eager to keep watching, keep practicing and maybe even start actually playing human beings when I feel like I'm worth the effort of playing. Maybe before the end of the year lol.
