Update 15:00 CET

In less than 1 hour the last classical game between Caruana and Carlsen will begin. Caruana has the white pieces and this is his last chance to avoid tiebreaks. Will he take it? Eight years ago in Sofia, Veselin Topalov tried to take the last game from Vishy Anand and avoid tiebreaks. The result was disastrous as he lost the World Championship outright.

For sure today we will have another theoretical battle on the board. Caruana is expected to enter a sideline, but not the most bizarre one, rather a line that gives him small permanent advantage.
