@M_HK_FA the description says "the end of 2031", but the market closes at the end of 2030. Which one did you mean? (Or did you mean for the market to be closed but not resolved for a year?)

predicts NO

@DanielTilkin Thank you! I think i just messed it up, my bad!

Market close is now updated to the end of 2031.

I"m surprised this is this low. This assumes that Carlsen doesn't want to participate in any championships over the next 8 years?

@PC I guess there is this market: https://manifold.markets/FubbiQuantz/will-magnus-carlsen-compete-for-the

Will Magnus Carlsen compete for the FIDE Classical World Chess Championship before 2033?
32% chance. This question resolves as YES if Magnus Carlsen, the Classical World Chess Champion as of 2022, participates either in: (1) An event, such as a candidates tournament, which is primarily intended to select the next contender for the FIDE Classical World Chess Championship. (2) Or Carlsen otherwise is a challenger for the FIDE Classical World Chess Championship. Criteria and clarifications. If Carlsen competes in a tournament or tournaments which are qualification events for a candidates tournament, then that does not count as competing for the world championship. For example, if winning first place in the Sinquefield Cup earns the winner a spot in the candidates tournament, then participating in the Sinquefield Cup does not count as competing for the world championship. But if Carlsen wins first place at the Sinquefield Cup and opts to participate in the candidates tournament, then this question will resolve as YES. The Sinquefield Cup does not count as a world championship competition because its chief reason for existing is not to serve as a WCC selection event. The official World Classical Chess Championship is the WCC contest administered by FIDE (or FIDE's successor if it should cease to exist as the main governing body of international chess competitions). Under these terms, Fischer's last match against Spassky and Kasparov's championships after the Kasparov-Short competition do not count as FIDE Classical World Chess Championships.
predicts NO

@PC He has indicated he isn’t interested in competing unless there is a major format change and FIDE has made no indication that the format will change in a way he wants. He is currently eligible for the candidates 2024 tournament but has said he has no intention to participate.

For this market to resolve true not only does Carlsen have to play, which means the format must change, but also win the candidates and then win the title again. I think that is pretty unlikely.

bought Ṁ0 of YES

@MaggieDelano Thanks! He did say he would be willing to face some of the next generation.

@M_HK_FA Do Rapid and Blitz FIDE world championships count? The "again" suggests this is classical only as Carlsen is currently the World Rapid Champion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Rapid_Chess_Championship

predicts NO

@MattReardon Sorry, it was intended to focus on the classical title only, not blitz / rapid
