I really laughed out loud when I saw this very funny, yet, seems legit, tweet by a chess fan.
There is no doubt that Karjakin showed off his impressive defensive skills in both Game-3 and Game-4 of the World Championship Match against Carlsen. Though Carlsen got an advantage and a nice position, in both games, he was not able to successfully convert them into win.
How often do we see Carlsen failing to convert his advantage into a victory? That’s why one has to appreciate Karjakin for the perfect defense he had made, consecutively.
The current world no.2 player, Fabiano Caruana, pointed out and acknowledged this. You can find his tweets below:
Meanwhile, the man who beat the Women’s World Champion Hou Yifan in the recent Hoogeveen Festival, Nigel Short, also shared his views about those two games.
Of course, one should not miss the humour of Anish Giri. You will be surprised to see his comments on who will win the World Championship Match.
By the way, you can vote for your favourite to win (Carlsen or Karjakin) here.
And not only that, Giri also responded to the ‘surprising result’ of draw in Game-4, even though the World Champion had an advantage.
Finally, no one wants to miss what the former World Champion and one of the greatest chess players of all time, Garry Kasparov, says about Carlsen-Karjakin, right?
Maybe it’s enough with the tweets of different players with different thoughts and opinions. Now I’ll share with you some of the interesting and funniest images related to the Carlsen-Karjakin Match.

When asked, how they (Carlsen and Karjakin) feel after another long and hard-fought game, this is what they replied:
Sergey Karjakin: Fantastic!
Magnus Carlsen: I really believe it’s better to be attacking than defending.
It’s good to see that the World Champion never thinks less of himself and remains in a positive mood.
