I thought Magnus was going to fly into a rage after the Armageddon game against GM Nakamura!

GM Caruana is playing Great, I wonder if he is practicing against engines or on any online website to improve his speed :?:

There is another thing that I forgot to mentioned, is that fact that Online tournament like this the Organizer save a lot of Money, since they do NOT have to paid for Hotel accommodations, food, and entertainments.

I watched a YouTube recording of this match on Sunday evening. Except in my case, I watched the stream with Magnus commentating (Maybe I should have watched Alireza's commentary :)).

Impressive result for GM Alireza Firouzja. He is gaining strength rapidly.

Firouzja is impressive. He played in the Master's group at Wijk aan Zee earlier this year, and only came in the middle of the standings, but that was against a group of super-grandmasters.
