World Cup 2015 - Game Of the Day - Final Game 2

Opening: C95: Ruy Lopez: closed, Breyer, Borisenko variation

Player(s): Karjakin, Svidler

GM Joel Benjamin recaps Game 2 of the Finals. A short match means you can't miss any chance, and Sergey knows this very well. Today he pressed, being aware that having lost the first of four games he needed a win to balance the score immediately and look forward to the last two games with some optimism. But chess is ruthless and cynical, we know that. Feeling the urge to win can easily lead to mistakes, the pressure is unbearable, the mind goes numb, and overlooking danger or a favorable chance to get advantage becomes a real possibility. Sergey said, after the game: "I defended reasonably well and probably deserved not to lose this game but I definetely didn't do anything to win it." And that is not enough to beat a Peter Svidler in shining form. Now the Russian from St. Petersburg leads 2-0 with two games to go. All Peter needs is a draw to win his second World Cup, and 120 Kilo dollars. And tomorrow Svidler plays with white.
