By the way if there are any French player out there I strongly advise you to watch the after-show of the Candidates tournament (currently under way) by Laurent Fressinet and JB Mullon. It's just amazing analysis and hindsights on top players preparation (Fressinet is works with Carlsen on his opening preparation). In particular I recommand you the analysis of Maxime Vachier-Lagrave victory against Nepomniachi in today's edition, which is a truly beautiful game with elegant geometrical moves and play on both sides of the board.

On the French show they fought it was quite needed (which basically means that Nepo screwed earlier though). In term of quality I think the Ding-Caruana game was better but this one was more beautiful.

Could we do the next one of these a little later in the day, like 16 GMT? I like chess but I don't like 7 am.

On second thought this is either in (4.25 or 6.25) +24 hours so I'll definitely be asleep unless I'm not.
