Not wanting to diminish Karjakins chess.
I watched almost all games until now (live).
But I really don't think Magnus is playing his best chess.
Maybe I have to wait until I get profound analysis. (I have a good source in Germany it's on paper though, a monthly, so I have to wait a while.)
As far as I can tell the games are not boring as was often criticized.
It suspense there.
Not Hitchcock but maybe Michael Bay.
