The Italian (as he still is for the moment), playing White, sprung an opening surprise:

CARUANA - TOMASHEVSKY

8.g4!? Tomashevsky: "I have not looked at this variation for a long time and such an aggressive idea came as a surprise, of course. In such a situation, it is not easy to find the right decision..." 
Caruana expressed the opinion that the position after the pawn thrust is pleasant for White in any case. 
8...Na6 9.g5 Nd7 10.h4 Nb4 11.Be2 b6 12.h5 Bb7 13.cxd5 exd5 14.Qd2! Tomashevsky: "I missed this idea. I calculated more direct variations, where I had some sort of counterplay. But after this move, the position is very dangerous strategically." 
14...f5 Evgeny said this was virtually forced, but the fearless computer suggests castling.
15.gxf6 Bxf6 16.h6 g6 17.e4 dxe4 18.Nxe4 0-0 19.0-0-0 Nd5? After this and the next move 20...Ba6? Black's position became extremely diffiicult. He had to find 19...b5!, with mutual chances.
Caruana played the rest in his customary immaculate manner and the Russian resigned after the time control. 1-0

Strangely, Tomashevsky's loss was his first in the entire GP series. Admittedly, he himself said this owes much to luck. "There were games where I was in danger and also completely lost positions. So this is no more than justice." 

Now Caruana occupies first place in the Grand Prix. The standings now look like this:
