Another draw it seems.
Most of the last hour carlsen seemed to be pushing for an advantage.
One miss step with his king and that was the end of that.

Opposite side castling for the first time might bring some drama.

Rapids it is then.
Commentary seemed surprised carlsen offered the draw.
Clearly he fancies his chances in the rapids.

Been watching some YouTube videos with the games played back against carlsen using the most powerful engines.
He didn't do very well.
