Karjakin levels score with great win!
Karjakin: chessboard magician!
Karjakin had his back against the wall going into today’s must-win game. Could he defeat the seemingly unstoppable American? After unluckily losing a completely level endgame yesterday, the pressure must have been enormous.
But today Karjakin meant business and demonstrated his extra-class. He crushed Shankland mercilessly with a direct Kingside attack. Tomorrow the match will be decided in tiebreaks.
