Karjakin, as black, was forced to take risks, because he had to win this game to stay in the match. He opened the match with a Sicilian Defence, the only appearance of this opening in the match. Carlsen used the dreaded Maroczy bind - a way of trying to prevent black liberating the position with d5. It also hems in the black bishop on e7. After giving Black the bishop pair, Magnus had a much better position with the two knights. They had good entrenchment squares. Carlsen finished the game with the queen sacrifice 50 Qh6+!! which leads to mate on the following move.
