Shamkir: the champion beats Caruana with Black 

Before the start of the third round of the Gashimov Memorial, Magnus Carlsen was not feeling quite in his element. He had unusually few photographers round his board, and the world champion is used to being the centre of attention. Only just as the clocks were about to be started did Fabiano Caruana arrive, and the photographers start clicking away. 

The duel of the two C's was roughly equal for a long time and not only the spectators, but Magnus himself thought it was a draw. "Fabiano could simply have repeated moves with 26.Rc7, and I can do nothing, and he could also draw at once with 27.f3. I don't know what to say, I was very surprised by what happened."

CARUANA - CARLSEN

Instead of 27.f3 Fabiano played 27.Ra1 Rd8 28.Bf1 c5 and had still not yet spoiled anything. "I thought I could draw however I wanted, and I don't understand what happened. Probably every move was a mistake."
29.Ra3 Nb1 30.Ra1?! Nd2 31.Be2? Correct was 31.Kg2, and White can still hold.
31...Nf3+ 32.Bxf3 exf3 Saving such a position against Magnus is very hard, especially feeling as depressed as Fabiano must have been.
33.h3 h5 34.g4 fxg4 35.hxg4 h4 36.Kh2 Rd2 37.Kh3 g5 38.e4!? A trap. If now 38...Rxf2?, then y39.Ra8+, and White has a desperado rook. Carlsen played 38...Rd4 and won. 0-1

In the other games, So outplayed Adams and is currently equal first with Carlsen on 2.5, with Kramnik half a point behind.
