Carlsen-Nepo 7: Magnus leads at halfway

Magnus Carlsen has a 4:3 lead going into the second half of the FIDE World Chess Championship in Dubai after carefully dealing with some mild pressure from Ian Nepomniachtchi in Game 7. Magnus said, "I couldn't really sleep yesterday — I was way too excited!" after his victory in Game 6, while he wasn't surprised that Nepo didn't come out all guns blazing to try and bounce back. "You don't want to tilt after a day like yesterday", he told Tania Sachdev.
