Carlsen-Karjakin, game 4: draw (2.0 - 2.0)

Well, you can't say they are settling for bloodless draws!

This game, in which Karjakin had white, went 94 moves and took nearly 7.5 hours, before it was finally agreed to be drawn.

Around move 70 or so, it seemed to me that Carlsen had a winning advantage.

Clearly, though, this just demonstrates how little I know. There were long stretches of this game which left me completely confused. The distance between my level of comprehension of chess, and their level of play of chess, is so vast as to frequently leave me slack-jawed, though mesmerized.

Time for another rest day; play resumes with game 5 on Thursday.
