World Championship Round 7: Game Analysis

World Championship Round 7: Game Analysis

Nov 20, 2016, 1:44 PM 3

Another short day at the office! This time Magnus Carlsen uses a rare line to unsettle Sergey Karjakin. The challenger got absolutely no advantage, wasting his second straight game with the white pieces. For the seventh time in seven games, team Carlsen won the opening battle, playing the Slav. Carlsen must have underestimated his position, opting not to play aggressively with 15...f5 and instead entering a position that secured him an easy half point.

Karjakin goes for 1. d4 but the opening switch does not change anything. Please feel free to comment and ask questions!
