Carlsen-Caruana 5: Magnus can't match his idol

The first five games of the 2018 World Chess Championship match in London have now been drawn, after Magnus Carlsen turned out to be well-prepared for some Fabiano Caruana aggression in the opening. Magnus slow-played that stage of the game, which Alexander Grischuk felt tempted Fabiano into taking a gamble that could have backfired. The Carlsen of 3-4 years ago, who Magnus called his “favourite player from the past” in the post-game press conference, lived for grinding out slightly better endgames. The 2018 version, however, let his prey slip from his grasp almost immediately.
