Carlsen: "Caruana is vulnarable as black..."

Fabiano Caruana scored 2/2 in Stavanger and improved his current rating to 2800.5. Italian is World #4 according to the official list for June 1. The next list will be published on July 1, so counting him as a 2800+ is yet premature. Caruana has never reached that desired frontier, although he was close to it last year.

Russian GM Svidler playing black against Caruana had a material advantage of the rook and two pieces for the queen after the opening, however, his king stuck in the very center assured a long-lasting initiative for White. GM Evgeny Romanov who is backing is compatriot also from St. Petersburg, noted in the commentary for Chess-News that Sivdler's position brings some unease.  

Caruana converted his advantage precisely andpractically left no chance his oppoennt to hold, nonetheless, in around 30th move one might have thought black has a considerable counterplay due to the f passed pawn. 

"Well, this is a good start but these are only two games and it is yet premature to draw any conclusions," Caruana said at the press conference. Today he faces Carlsen. The world champion hasn't celebrated a win yet, but he keeps calm and optimistic, "I am in a good shape and asr egards to Caruana, he is vulnarable as black - memories on our game in Shamkir are yet fresh...", vg.no quotes Carlsen.
