    A smashing game...long...but interesting.
    It only finished about an hour ago but I've noted it up.

    Also some RHP traps from the opening used by these two.

    And...Snakes and Ladders!

    Yeah that was a brutal sluggfest, I fell asleep trying to keep up, an unbelievable game. Almost makes you want to study some endgame stuff.

    You know, I have to say that Carlsen really let one slip there. Not that the win is easy, but if that game had been played in a tournament, Magnus would have converted that position. I have to say i am pleased Karjakin managed to defend so well. The match would have been spoiled had he lost so early. As it now stands, Karjakin has momentum and the white pieces! I can't wait to see the moves! I can't imagine the champ would have slept very well after investing all that energy into a draw.
