...some exciting stuff is happening as i type. they have just finished the 2 rapid games of the 4.
in both games magnus had held a a tangible advantage. he was ahead both positionally and time wise.
in the rapid game 2 he was at one point 11 minutes ahead (mind you, out of a total 50 mins). yet karjakin coolly played the incremental rule (10 sec per move) to achieve a final time score almost equal or basically equal where carlsen - as expected - had not expected karjakin to find a draw. \
we now have the rapid game 3...of a total 4 before the blitz. what i have gleaned it is still a theoretical draw. means nothing a short time commitment can produce ANYTHING...
