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.

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

Respect to Vidit. Very sportive player

Author — Hehehe


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

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

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

You can tell by Vidit 's facial expressions that beads were involved. Magnus noticed this and realized an early draw was his only opportunity to get out alive.

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

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

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

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

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

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:

When I was younger I once played against 7 chess professionals here in Germany at the same time..

And lost to all of them

I think I could defeat Magnus Carlsen because I binge-watched "The Queen's Gambit".

The excitement in the crowd was unbelievable. At one point I thought a Mexican wave was going to break out

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.
