All participants of the Candidates' have won at least once. In Round 8 Sergey Karjakin managed to outplay Peter Svidler as black. Moreover, the winning line found on the 6th hour of play impressed the spectators:


64....Rxd4! 65.Kxd4 b6!! It was important to find exaclty this combination of moves. If playing 65...g4? immediately, white rook gets in time: 66.Rxb7 g3 67.Re7 g2 68.Re1 with a draw. 
66.Kc3 Ke3 67.Rb7 g4 68.Rxb6 g3 69.Rd6 g2 70.Rd1 g5? Easier win was 70.Bg4 with an idea of moving the bishop on е2. Karjakin's choice also brought a point, however, black's precise play was needed afterwards and not once. 0-1

GMs made a detailed commentary of the game after six and a half hours of play. 

Karjakin, "I was of course very upset after losing against Aronian. I received a lot of messages in support and I am very thankful to all of my friends. They helped me to recover. Today as yesterday I wanted to play a full falue game." 

Svidler made only three draws in 8 rounds. The same performance has only Mamedyarov. However, both are in minus by now. 

"I see no need in drying out," Svidler said. "There's alsways a temptation to make a draw. I have a years old experience of playing in an energy saving mode. But the Candidates' isn't for that as I see it. I don't think I have other dozen of such tournaments ahead, to be overly saving energy."
