The second game in the 12-game contest between champion Magnus Carlsen and challenger Fabiano Caruana is currently underway in London. The first game was a marathon seven-hour game with 115 moves that ended in a draw, with analysts feeling that Carlsen had a chance of winning while playing black but blundered late in the game.
You can watch the second game via a livestream below along with commentary by two analysts. The actual board is in the small box with the large board being used by the analysts who seem, along with Carlsen, to have been taken by surprise by the 10th move by Caruana who is playing black. There is also a live blog of the game
It has been a long time since I played chess seriously, or at all for that matter. I am not sure of the rules of these championships. Given the power of computers now, are the players during their breaks allowed to consult computers and friends or are they kept isolated from all contact with the outside world? I would expect the latter but just don’t know.
