2021 FIDE Candidates Tournament

Starts tomorrow! How excited is everyone? Who are you hoping wins to take on Magnus for the title?
Me, I'm super excited. I'm hoping Nepo is the winner.. After that, anyone by Fabi.

I think Nepo is the one who has the best chance of winning against Magnus, so I hope he does well in the tournament, but who knows. Let's wait and see, it will be very interesting.

anish giri could also be interesting against magnus

My theory when the tournament started was that Ding would almost certainly win, with maybe Fabi if not. Now, I honestly have no idea. It's any man's (other than Alekseenko's) game.
