Update 15:35 CET

Fabiano Caruana has the white pieces today. Will we see another theoretical battle in the Rossolimo variation? Or will Caruana try 1.d4 or 1.c4 to mix things up?

Update 15:30 CET

It is time for game 7 of the World Chess Championship 2018. After seven consecutive draws the audience is hungry for a win by any of the players. However, the stakes are high and it is less likely that players will take risks. A decisive result at any point from now on might very well mean the match is over.
