A taste of things to come?
I hope so, but don't quite see it happening just yet.

After two and a half hours' play, they were equal.

It looked as if they might as well have drawn.

But even a draw was not to be for Carlsen.

Carlsen wishes he had offered a draw, if allowed.
Things look bad and he is losing.

And yes, he has lost. Again.
He must be under the weather.
Surely ?

My understanding of the game has been greatly helped by following the lovely Sergey Shipov HERE

In case your Russian is non-existent, as is mine, you can follow his golden words thanks to Colin McGourty's ( from chessintranslation ) excellent translation in real time. Aren't people clever.

Thank you to both of them.
