And so it is underway!
Carlsen had white, but didn't seem to me to get any advantage from the opening.
The queens came off the board on move 16, along with a pair of rooks.
By move 35, each player had a single minor piece and a bunch of pawns. One of Karjakin's pawns was doubled; Karjakin had the bishop, Carlsen the knight.
A draw was decided on move 42.
Let's see what tomorrow brings!
