With the black pieces!!!
Carlsen had white this time, and went back to a 1. d4 opening.
The game seemed to open up after about 15 moves, rather complex play I thought, but after 45 moves or so Carlsen had, if anything, a slight advantage I thought.
But then it seems like Carlsen just made a calculation error, perhaps due to fatigue, or maybe Karjakin simply out-played him.
At any rate, Carlsen's bishop was suddenly useless, while Karjakin was playing with a very active knight, and then, in the blink of an eye, it was over.
Blood has been drawn; can Carlsen come back?
Don't miss game 9!
