GM Magnus Carlsen got to be Magnus Carlsen today.
He had tried to break down GM Sergey Karjakin with the Ruy Lopez and the Giuoco Piano in the 2016 World Championship. Today, he used a hybrid, but it was his continuous endgame edge that finally wore down the challenger after more than six hours.
With his opportunities to equalize the match score dwindling, Carlsen mustered pressure, then finally, his first full point. His win evened the match 5-5. There is still everything to play for with two classical games remaining.
The accumulation of many favorable positions finally paid dividends for the world champion. He wasn't perfect in the conversion, but he was good enough.
"It feels very good," Carlsen said, visibly much more ebullient than at any other point in the match. "It wasn't easy, but I made him break."
Longtime second GM Jon Ludvig Hammer, viewing from Norway, told he had never seen Carlsen this happy before.
