Really psyched for this. I think the Chessbrah stream is going to be really good.

Chess24 just barfed a fart and is now showing Karjakin-Mamedyarov as all games so I don't know exactly what's happening in Lev-Ding
After a very long think Ding played Rd6, which seems a blunder

I think you are talking about move 44, and Stockfish sees Bxd8 following no matter what you promote to, check or no check. Stockfish has a tendency to underpromote in those situations because it thinks it is slightly more likely the opponent will not take if you underpromote. So d8=Q Bxd8 still would have left Kramnick in the position Stockfish considered best for white.

He pops up fairly regularly. Sorry he is going to STL, wish they had him for the entire tournament.

Kramnik taking stubbornness to bizarre lengths, repeatedly throwing away draws against Grischuk to insist upon losing.

Haven't watched today's after match presser yet, but I'm looking forward to it, because yesterday's with Ding was pretty hilarious.

Tied for first presuming Shak draws, and if that were the case, with three wins, I think he would actually win on tie-breaks if the tournament ended today.
