Update on Game 4 of the World Chess Championship between Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin.
If Game 3 was the "Draw of the Century",...Game 4 could be called the "Lost Opportunities", or "How to Draw in 94 Moves", or perhaps even, "Draw of the Century Part Deux". So now that we have the, "who won?" question out of the way, let's move onto what happened.
With Karjakin playing White, the game proceeded routinely enough. That is until Karjakin blundered on move 18, and again on move 19. Even Novices could see that Carlsen had the clear advantage at this point. However, Carlsen could not break Karjakin's defenses and and from move 50 to 94, they danced around the board with each countering their opponent's moves perfectly.
After 94 moves, and about six-and-a-half hours of play, Carlsen reluctantly agreed to a draw.
Current Score (after Game 4):
Carlson - 2
Karjakin - 2
Today is a day off and Game 5 takes place tomorrow, Nov 17, starting at 2:00pm
