I was really upset when I made that comment, but even looking back, it's still so ridiculous. There shouldn't be such a huge contrast between the 99% overall match accuracy that was 2021 Magnus Carlsen's WC play and these two...
Also, how did Ian literally have 100% accuracy up until that rook move, playing engine moves every time, which simply has to show that he knew his position and the lines of it, that he was winning and how to proceed, and suddenly just... blunders. Like... either you know you're winning or you don't, or at the very least you make a smaller position worsening move, not all the crap he did. Ding also showed he didn't have a clue and was literally gifted the win with that SUPER OBVIOUS second blunder.
Nah, you know what, I stand by what I said. That game was just ugly chess, and neither of those two deserve the title.
