2018 Carlsen - Nakamura : Resources

In my previous post, 2018 Carlsen - Nakamura, I wrote,
The match generated considerable interest about 'Fischer Random Chess960' (as someone called it during the match and which is a good compromise to avoid the confusion surrounding the two names) and I'll have more to say about that in a follow-up post.

For consistent, top-level reporting on the match, you can't beat the resources shown in the following table. The first column leads to a record of the live commentary. The other two columns are for leading chess news sources that put considerable effort into covering the match. All three resources also allowed comments, which are an important part of the record.

I collected dozens of other references -- many well informed, some not-so-well -- but I'll leave those for another day. The table in this post gives me more than enough material to fill my chess960 time.
