In the most topsy-turvy game of the match, Carlsen surprised Karjakin in the opening. The challenger handled it well, and even became a bit aggressive. 20...Bxc5 was criticized, as it handed Carlsen a slight but steady advantage with no risk. However, Carlsen became a bit careless and Karjakin had some attacking chances, but the game petered out into another peaceful result.

Enjoy the analysis, and comment away!
