The St. Louis tournament was a huge setback for Magnus Carlsen (28): Seven lost – and only 7th before the last day of the fast and lightning jacket.

While Maxim Washer-Lagrave is leading with 17.5 points (out of 27 possible), Carlsen has 12.5 ahead of Wednesday's nine closing lightning games.

"A nightmare for Magnus," said official commentator Yasser Seravan.

"It's all a mess," Carlson said in an interview with Morris Ashley on the organizer's website.

– There is no self-confidence. I'm no longer interested. Now I'm just waiting for this tournament to end. I am waiting for the classic part, the declared world champion continued.

So Carlsen has lost seven of 18 games in St. Louis to date. By comparison, Carlson lost three of his 15 matches in the last World Chess Championship – and last but not least: he played 21 games in the World Chess Cup without losing any (which, of course, gave him the World Cup title).

"Now he is about to win the tournament," commentator Jennifer Shahade commented after seven of the nine nine lightning-related chess games.

"Yes, Magnus's body language speaks the most," said her co-commentator Seravan.

Levon Aronian-Carlsen 1 / 2-1 / 2.

Carlsen-Richard Report 1–0.

Against Levon, Aronian Carlsen set out to take revenge by defeating the tournament leader. But he wasn't playing accurately enough.

"Magnus has wasted the benefit," commentator Morris Ashley said. Shortly afterwards, it became clear that the party was in remission.
