A draw apparently.
Two games running black has appeared better but not got the point

Strange looking board at move 33.
Comms saying carlsen has the upper hand, hard to see why.

A rather dull draw.
Carlsen probably happy to settle it in blitz again.

Looked like a fairly challenging draw.
Carlsen not for the 1st time having to work out over the board against caruanas prep.

Queens off already and trading minor pieces.
Doesn't look like magnus with white has anything at all.

Barely hangs on for a draw after nearly 7 hours.
Caruana has the upper hand It seems.

Too evenly matched, carlsen hasn't tried anything with white.

Carlsen blew it yesterday according to what I read.
Didn't see any of it live yesterday.
