FIDE WC Match 2016 - Game 2

Second draw in a row today. A Ruy Lopez, closed variation, with some interesting moments, but overall a "quiet" game.
The two contenders are studying each other, trying to find a weakness in each other's preparation.
So far Carlsen and Karjakin have been very careful and, giving the importance of what's at stake, it is quite normal.

Here is a 5-minute preview of Gm Smerdon's analysis of the game.
