    Dubov is the only player during the Carlsen era to really take the fight to him. I predict that whenever Carlsen gives up his crown, it will go to Dubov.

    Kudos for Dubov. Magnus didn't even made any blunder, which makes his victory even greater. The pawn capture on a4 or a5 isn't a blunder as such. It's clear that it cost him the game, but wasn't a blunder.

I would have a question on this one, if anyone would like to answer to it: Why is f5 better than Re1 for black, threatening Rg1 against which I can't see any good defense and which would be followed by (Qxg4, mate) or the loss of the white rook? What am I missing with it? Thank you very much
