Candidates R4: With 2 Americans playing for the first time in forever, the pattern of three draws and one win continues at the World Championship Candidates 2016. But it was very close to two decisive games today, as Fabiano Caruana squandered a huge advantage against Veselin Topalov. Nakamura-Giri and Svidler-Aronian were sharp and fighting draws. But the game of the day was definitely Karjakin’s first classical victory over Vishy Anand.
