Wesley So’s latest conquest on the heavily favored world champion Magnus Carlsen opened the Pandora’s of his once-touted invincibility.

All top-tier GMs are like hungry sharks studying all Carlsen’s weaknesses and blunders exposed by our guy.

Wesley remains humble despite all the accolades he received from all over the world. He REMAINS playing mind games against the Norwegian champ insinuating that it was all his not bringing in his A-game.

Well, if this what it takes to win over Carlsen then let it be his default narrative.

IMO, the recent Skilling Open is the most publicized tourney this year.

This is the type of game is where Wesley is king. Even Carlsen admittedly said this after the loss.

Wesley is the reigning 9LX world champion and earned this title at the expense of Carlsen...and was held in Norway!

One thing that we are all certain of. Wesley has conquered his “Mount Everest” in defeating Carlsen...from 9LX to Skilling Open.

WESLEY HAS OVERCOME HIS FEAR OVER CARLSEN!

On the other hand, Carlsen has developed his RESPECT AND FEAR towards Wesley!

That being said, it’s game on!

Let’s all hope and pray that Wesley ultimately dethrones Carlsen and the probability of realizing it is higher than ever!!!

In the meantime, while Wesley is moving up, another person has gone to the opposite direction

Wesley is in the semis of The Speed Chess Championship

...against the out-for-blood Hikaru :shock:

Up next for Hikaru is Wesley So, who beat him in the semi-finals of the Skilling Open. <-- :lol: How will Hikaru approach another clash with his US colleague?

I think it’s more of the same – just play good, solid chess. But certainly it’s payback time - so I’m going to be out for blood! I will say that much.

The semi-finals and final will be held in a week’s time, on Friday-Sunday 11-13 December.



The other semis pairing is Magnus vs. MVL
