LONDON GETS MEGA MILLION WORLD CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP MAGNUS CARLSEN (NOR) MATCH NOV 9-28, 2018 ….
This just in from Mr. George Osborne/former English financial minister … it is official … To the amazement of almost everyone London, England is the mega million dollar world chess championship title host … the match remains a monstrous grueling 19 days journey … far too long with eternal 4-6 hour marathon games that the public absolutely will not watch, never personally play and which only die-hard enthusiasts will ever attend … even in chess hip London … people have lives to lead … two murderous (”first half-second half”) thrilling no time ever added games per day/one with the white pieces/ one with black … with everything totally over in 4 hours flat/entire match one frenzied week only is likely the only future way to go for world chess internet live stream broadcast in 200 chess nations/500 million chess phone app users … The tragic, grim second promotional horror remains … players are ALSO still allowed to offer a ridiculous draw by mutual agreement at any time killing all serious media interest if it happens even once during the match. It just happened TWICE in the 2017 world cup semi final round … Once spying a phony non game the media/public by the millions almost always has had it … you check out immediately and read about the match later … or forget the whole nasty business. Rapid time controls also allow the whole world to play in one week flat for the world chess championship as well as to watch it avidly … Your local boy/girl is in the hunt! Remember kindly … Draws by agreement are NEVER allowed in boxing, soccer, basketball, football, rugby, tennis … Fixed in advance or non-chess games at this level are simply fraud and cost ticket buyers/promoters/sponsors/all media a fortune … only the referee arbiter will ever be allowed to declare a draw someday soon … the players will only ask the arbiter … while risking a double zero “no contest“ ruling as in boxing … The fiery chess promoter le Grande … world number one Carlsen stands atop the chess world via all classical/rapid/blitz ratings … the world champion’s challenger comes March 2018 … the “candidates event” with the truly on fire, just married world number two/disgustingly pleasant gentleman LEVON ARONIAN of Armenia favored to win. ########################
