  1. Great examples! Thanks. As Karjakin showed in tiebreak game two, never stop looking for counterblows, no matter how hopeless your position may seem!

  2. It was interesting what you said about Karjakin apparently having a penchant for playing poorly with his rooks (bad/mediocre moves or overlooking good moves) – rather surprising for a world championship contender. Oddly enough, I came across another example, his 20th move in Carlsen-Karjakin, Bilbao 2016 (3), 20…Rc4. It’s especially interesting since Komodo gives Black a slight advantage after the more natural 20…Nc4.
