@magnus_carlsen3: I was wrong. I severely underestimated karjakin. He was almost dead last at some point in the first half and now he's tied with caruana in the lead. In fact, he beated Caruana to be in the lead now... I'm really not excited for another Karjakin vs Carlsen because I want something new but the best must challenge him.
Anyone else surprised at the strikes of misfortune Aronian is having in the candidates despite a great 2017 for him?
Yes this has been terrible for him and So.
