I'm not absolutely sure - surely Karjakin must at least have *something* in mind?

I can't believe he spent all his preparation time honing his ability to grovel :)

I think it's possible to break the Carlsen ego the further this equality goes.

So now we have a best of six match.

or nil nil at half time to return to the football analogy. normally 60 minutes when the fans of the dominant side get nervous

I was wondering whether, to extend Richard's analogy, Karjakin might be playing for a "game of two halves".

Though a fairly effortless draw with Black probably won't disappoint the defending champion after his scare yesterday.

If this were a football match the commentators would be likening it to a game of chess.

I agree.

I also feel that for his mix of concrete analysis and game specific chess wisdom, for ECF 150 -200, Peter is probably now the best chess commentator in the English speaking world. Other candidates?

I heard an excellent explanation for this. Peter's years of listening to cricket have given him a perfect appreciation for what to do in commentary when nothing is really happening. I think there might be something to be said for that.

Karjakin seemingly sticking with the plan of playing very slightly worse positions with white ;)
