Tie-3.5 after seven tables in a row in the mourning to 12 games
The Norwegian Magnus Carlsen, defending the title of world chess, returned to hitting in the seventh game against the wall of the aspiring american Fabiano Caruana, who had no problems to dry with black the weak offense of the champion. After 39 moves and 3 hours and 40 minutes of play were agreed to at the tables by repetition of moves.
the bookmark of The meeting, agreed to the best of 12 games, is equaled to 3.5 points after seven draws in a row and the candidate is now facing a situation promising, with white in three of the five items that are missing.
Carlsen, who had suffered much on Friday against the defence Petrov to escape the defeat with white, fled in the seventh, with the same parts, of the so called "Russian", the favorite of Caruana, to follow in the first nine movements through the same channels of the queen's gambit proposed in the second game. In the tenth move, the champion deviated from that line. In place of 10.Td1 preferred 10.Cd2, but the applicant seemed to have it all planned: it took just 26 seconds in replicate 10...Qd8.
Caruana had meditated for 28 minutes before opening the column D taking 13...dxc4, which indicated that at this point of the game was already out of the preparations made by his team and the computers, forced to think for himself.The game more boring
The Norwegian emerged from the opening with a slight advantage in space but in front of a very healthy american. In 19 movements had only been changed two pawns, the rest of the pieces remained on the board. For a short time, because he immediately changed the towers, leaving only ladies and the lightweight material on the table, with symmetrical structure of pawns. A position conducive to trying adventures.
not To be because the rules of the World prevents them from signing tables before 30 moves, the tie could well have come much earlier, in the game more boring so far this tournament.
Carlsen, who publicly confess not to be in its best form, gave the impression that, at this stage of the championship, I would be happy with getting a tie at the end of the twelfth game. In the tie-break to fast games, the statistics give clearly the role of favorite.
