A rare event in Carlsen's practice: his game was first to finish in Round 8. 

The world champion was white against Sergey Karjakin, at the press conference Norwegian noted he got nothing after the opening. Russian drew confidently adn at some point even thought of more. As Carlsen said he wanted to play for a win without risk today, but eventually it turned out that his opponent did so.

Karjakin was asked if he could be dubbed "the king of draws", yet Sergey drew all of his games. 

"Perhaps, you can," Karjakin replied. The problem is that when you try to play good chess, the draw is the most probable result..."
