  1. Russian government supplies doping to Karjakin and Esipenko. Which improve memory, concentration, visualization and pattern recognition.
    They will both play in the final.

  2. I'm probably not the only one who notices: whenever Vishy suggests a move, and Danny plays it, the computer always loves it. Every time. Then when Danny suggests a move, and plays it, the computer hates it. Eval bar swings like a pendulum in the opposite direction.
