For those who don't understand, Magnus Carlsen had an upset stomach so he offered a draw after just 5 moves to Vidit Gujarati which he accepted.

GM Vidit ranks 24 in the world. It may look like Magnus was winning so Vidit accepted draw, but Magnus was the one who wanted a draw. As you can see that Vidit was surprised when Magnus put Knight in G5

After resigning move 1 against Hans Niemann, this game is now the second shortest game of his career.

Respect to Vidit. Very sportive player

Author — Hehehe


After his last match with Niemann, this is no longer his shortest game.

For anyone confused Magnus had a bad stomach and offered a draw, his opponent accepted it. no one lost and magnus didn't have him pinned or whatever

If I had magnus in a checkmate I would still accept his draw

Vidit seems to be a nice guy. I did not see anybody else smiling just from the start.

Vidit seemed happy to take the draw.
As long as both are pleased with the result, things are fine.😊

The best part of this draw was Sagar Shah's reaction of astonishment as he springs to his feet and draws nearer for a look, bafflement and question on his face!! <3

Imagine that guy invited his mom to watch the game and she was 1 minute and thirty seconds late

Magnus didn't actually blunder. He just caught a glimpse of Vidits true power and decided to retreat to live another day.

For those thinking magnus won, watch the given Video linked below, Vidit gujrati is a chess prodigy that had 3 draws before this match against Magnus and this one was a draw too. Magnus offered the draw and told Vidit that he had a bad stomach. Vidit accepted because in next few moves his rook would've been taken by Magnus and early rook death would increase match's time.



This is so funny; when I first saw this, I thought Vidit had stumbled into fool's mate, and Magnus's shrug as he left was a kind of gracious gesture signaling "Yeah, these crazy weird blunders happen, human fallibility, it's not your real play." I took Vidit's awkward smile as signaling embarrassment (with mild self-humor) at such a fumble.

Also, another first for me as to this game:

Bro I was so confused until I read the comments I was like, “HOW THE HECK DID HE WIN!?!?”

It was a draw. Magnus offered a draw because he had an upset stomach. And vidit accepted the draw.

After the game ends they moved the kings to center squares., according to the outcome.
Here you see each king on his own color : this is for a draw :)
If e4 and d5 it means white wins (with both kings on white squares ) else, with kings on black squares d4 and e5, it means black wins.

I like this match. It's my favourite of Magnus'. He had stomach cramps or something so drew it five moves in. Have to admit I'd take it too. I mean he got to play against Magnus and DREW IT! Uber good sportsmanship on Vidit's part.
