The FIDE World Chess Championship will take place next month.
Who will win? Magnus Carlson or Ian Nepomniachtchi?

I think Magnus will win, since he's been "training" ever since the Candidate's tournament, in all time formats. I haven't seen Nepo for a while.
Magnus is ready to defend.

FWIW, I think Hikaru should stop pretending he's an equal rival with Magnus, and actually compete in tournaments, instead of streaming and flirting with the Botez sisters.

No idea.

I Wikipediad them all. Yet more celebrities I had no idea existed!

I am not that cerebral. What happened to Bobby Fisher?

I hadn't heard of any of them either
But a quick search shows me that I can't fault Hikaru for flirting with the Botez girls.

The greatest game ever played. Game six, 1972 world championship.

I predict Magnus as well, guessing that he'll have the edge in preparation and motivation.

Magnus here. I was kind of hoping MVL would get in or, better yet, someone wild like Dubov but Nepo will make it interesting for sure. He has a winning record against Magnus.
