Wow!!! What a game!! Seriously looked like Carlsen had just a little edge after surprising Karjakin early on with 10. Re2 only to go 11. Re1. Karjakin defended admirably before Carlsen seized the initiative and improved his position. Magnus obtained a winning position, but blew it late in the game and had to settle for a draw. Karjakin can breathe a huge sigh of relief, as he enters his second white game tied at 1.5 apiece rather than down a game.

Enjoy the analysis, and please feel free to ask any questions in the comments!
