World Chess Championship 2018: Fabiano Caruana vs Magnus Carlsen – Game 5


This was a more interesting game, where both players pushed more aggressively. Both Carlsen and Caruana made a few small inaccuracies, but for the most part, the game was even, leading to an inevitable draw.

“I felt that I had a fine position after the opening. I hoped to press him. I don’t think I played particularly well today.” – Magnus Carlsen

“A well-played game with some fireworks” – Fabiano Caruana.
