Update 14:00 CET

Today is game 3 of the match and Fabiano Caruana has the white pieces again. In game 1 (replay here) the American was on the brink of losing. The 128 cores Super Computer analyzing the game was often hitting -7 evaluation, while the neural network Lc0 believed the game is long gone before the time control. Series of inaccuracies by Carlsen saved Caruana from a disastrous start. Today he will have a chance to show what he ca do with the white pieces again.
