Up to today Sergey Karjakin drew 17 classical games in a row. Today he was defeated by Levon Aronian at NorwayChess supertournament. 

"I expected to finish this draw series in a different way," Karjakin smiled after the game. "Now it's about not starting that series again..."

The commentator of the tournament Nigel Short noted that Aronian played in famous grandmaster Ulf Andersson, "You surely studied his games, didn't you?"

"Unfortunately, I don't know as many of his games as I would wish to know,"Aronian replied. "Perhaps, that's why I am not World #1 player."

GM Evgeny Romanov was commentating for Chess-News live, after the opening he suggested equality in Aronian - Karjakin encounter.

"Seemingly White has nothing special, but practically it's uncomfortable for Black position," Levon explained at the press conference. He said the decisive mistake was 29...а4 after which holding the endgame is extremely troublesome.
