A game that shows Caruana's strategy. Carlsen chose a sterile line for his first of the two Whites he is getting. He tested Caruana's preparation and when the latter showed it they entered a symmetrical endgame position. Carlsen probably hoped t...

Caruana tried, but failed to impress anybody. At first sight the move 6 b4 looks exciting and aggressive, but it was in fact a test of Carlsen's memory. And the World Champion passed it without problems. It is worth noting that Caruana again s...

Players are often much better in solving tactical exercises than in finding tactical solutions in their own games when playing over the board. When you are looking for candidate moves in a real game, you do not know if there is a tactic in the pos...

The shortest game of the match so far and in fact there was only one critical moment in it. Carlsen opened with 1 c4, adding more options right from the start. Would Caruana try to go for QGD set-ups with 1...e6 or would he go symmetrical with 1...

A rather unconvincing showing by both players. Caruana deviated from Game 1 and chose the rare 6 0-0 in the Rossolimo (I'm afraid we won't be seeing an Open Sicilian any time soon). The omission of h3 introduces many subtleties in the upcom...
