The real game started when he landed in India. Magnus must’ve been offered something super spicy, which was actually a trap. It is called the upset stomach gambit. Well played.

Ok, so I found this on Quora (because I didn’t understand either):
“The game between Magnus and Vidit went 1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♞c6 3.♗c4 ♝c5 4.d4 exd4 5.♘g5!? As he moved his knight to g5, Magnus offered a draw. Vidit was confused, smiled, and accepted the draw. Later it was revealed that the World Champion was suffering from stomach issues and hence could not continue the game.”

I feel bad for GM Vidit, everyone thinks Carlson won the game, it is a draw!

YouTube recommends the most random videos, but this is probably one of the best ones.

"Bearded man nearly shits himself in front of opponent" would have been a better title.

1:15 You can hear him say “I have a terrible stomach ache” probably the reason why he decided to draw. It’s worth noting that if the biggest grand master offers a draw for you, you should probably accept it 😂

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

If Magnus ever offered ME a draw, I'd accept too - even if I was a queen and a rook up at the time!

What Magnus said: "I have a terrible stomach ache"
What I heard: "You are terribly stupid"
Me: 0_0

I know nothing about chess but my brain: it seems interesting to watch how fast they can move their hand

I love this video. Watch Vidit closely. He's as lost as we are. I can hear Magnus whisper to him: "Offer a draw."

Author — Speed Racer


Magnus would’ve lost had Vidit said no to his draw request. I mean, can you think about anything when you’re about to have an explosive diarrhea?

If vidit didn't have accepted the draw offer....Magnus would start thinking from his stomach and not from his brain😅

1:22 The expression of the audience is amazing and even Sagar Shah is confused in the background
