And it gave Caruana sole lead. If other players take desperate shots at him, I like his chances.

Kramnik is playing the strangest. I understand why heís doing it; itís just very weird to see him doing it.

If youíre Caruana, what the heck do you do? Youíve got black and lose all the tiebreakers, but hold a half point lead. Will Grischuk just want a quick draw and go home or will he feel obliged to fight you?

At least the guys in second know they need to win.

Caruana does have the advantage in that if he decides he wants a draw Grischuk probably wonít insist on fighting. I wonder what mood Kramnik will be in; heís been playing oddly.

He may very well, but that gives Grischuk the option of forcing a draw, which I assume he would.

Iím a little surprised they donít play out the tiebreakers.

This tournament deserves a book like they did in the old days. I was afraid itíd be conservative draw after draw, but they went after each other.

Agreed, alas, it took until December 2017 to get a good Carlsen/Karjakin book so I don't think it would happen. I would love it though.

Maybe somebody will do a DVD or video series.
