Position after 47…a5. White’s position is overwhelming. I expect Magnus to score a full point soon.

Magnus blundered to allow Cheparinov to draw but he gave back the favor and now it should be over soon. I suspect that the 30 second increment time control has to do with the blunderfest in this game at the end.

GM Carlsen (2714) – GM Cheparinov (2670) [A48]
