It’s three games, three draws in the 2018 World Chess Championship

It’s three games, three draws in the 2018 World Chess Championship match in London, with Black the side pushing at the end of all three of them. On this occasion both players had ample reason for regret, with Magnus Carlsen giving the one-word answer “nope” to the question of whether he was satisfied with the outcome of the opening. Fabiano Caruana got a significant edge, but then threw it all away in one careless move. After that he was made to suffer, but not too much. As he said at the post-game press conference, “I think that Magnus could have tortured me for a bit more”.
