That’s a Chess world. You can’t always be a champion. Just keep doin your best. Go go Wesley the future world chess champion.
I think Wesley was performing exactly at his rating level. Losing only 0.4 rating points means that he did play as a 2794 player. I think it was Hikaru who had a sub-par performance.
The committee who decided so they are professionals in that thing, so, we cannot argue…
Even for exceptional players theres always a so-so performance.
Sige…Amerika pa more!
