LONDON (Dagbladet): Magnus Carlsen seemed to have a fantastic start in the World Cup, but with black pieces, the ruling world champion gave an opportunity to take over early defender Fabiano Caruana.
The players had to enter a 115-character marathon party, eventually dividing the score.
Nordmann had a solid time in the match's early days, but when Carlsen began to win in his hollow hand, he also began to spend a lot of time.
In the 40th draw – before the duelants were awarded 50 new minutes – Carlsen moved the runner to c6, followed by a certain grid on his head.
Better than yesterday
Magnus Carlsen admitted at the press conference that he remains with mixed feelings after the marathon party.
"I showed today that I did not necessarily go for a reference. I'm not very excited, but if you look at it from the spectator's point of view, things are a bit better than they were yesterday," said Norwegian.
Carlsen also pointed out that he felt that his own game was encouraging compared to how he played last time.
Fabiano Caruana, in turn, was disappointed with his own game and said he felt he was losing himself several times during the party.
"It was a special experience with all the photographers and so on. I quickly came in, but unfortunately my game was not very good today.
– Saw like he became nervous
The Australian Grandmaster and Chess Expert Ian Rogers believes Carlsen became nervous when approaching time control due to the clock.
"At one point, about the 35th character, Fabiano relaxed more, while Magnus looked like he thought he'd thrown it, Rogers told Dagbladet just after the players had 50 minutes.
"He spent a lot of time and could not find the right move. Fabiano has done an incredibly good job of defending himself for some time," Rogers continued.
After the 40th, the winning victory went out and shows the so-called pila.
"Did Magnus lose the chance of victory?
"I'm sure the computers say it, but when you see it instantly without computers, Fabiano seems to be the most important.
