Karjakin-Caruana is the Sicilian, the queenless Catalan is Giri-Topalov.

I think Caruana's advantage on the clock ought to be worth Karjakin's advantage on the computer, at least.

I seem to remember from my Najdorf days that this is where White goes e5 and it all turns ugly.

Well the computer likes it. Van Kampen, in the commentary box, plays Siclians and he wasn't bothered, says Sicilian players like to run around with their kings.

(Still, looking at the lines, it's hard not to believe that Karjakin blinked.)

This is the game that several sources were quoting which shows Nick was on the mark with his last comment.

This one wasn't very sceptical, though of course it wasn't you.
Is it your contention that the arbiter *didnt* say what was attributed to them by Chess Vibes?

The chess24 computer thinks Svidler just made a fairly bad move, which might be consequential.

EDIT: on further consideration it calms down a bit.
