Peter Svidler: "I didn't deserve to lose, but I haven't done anything to win"

The final of the FIDE World Cup is a one-sided game so far. After yesterday's loss, Sergey Karjakin decided to play for a win straightaway, but an attempt to avoid a draw played a malicious trick on him. 

KARJAKIN - SVIDLER

White had a slight advantage throughout the entire game, Black defended well. As Svidler has noted at the press conference held after the game, the diagram position is a dead draw, and his opponent's next moves are impossible to explain with any logic. "Perhaps, I didn't deserve to lose today, but I haven't done anything to win either..."
37.Rb5?? Kh8. White simply loses a piece. According to Svidler, converting the advantage wouldn't be a difficult task. But...
38.Rd5 Nb6 ...now White is already losing the rook. Karjakin resigned. 0-1
"When you are trying to play on your rival's time trouble, you should keep in mind he may still outplay you," Karjakin shared in his Twitter, adding: "Seems like my share of luck in this tournament is finished."

Let us remind you that the final match consists of four games. If one of the players gathers 2.5 points he will be the winner.
"Is it over?" - one of the journalists asked Svidler, who leads the match 2-0.
"No!, - Svidler replied confidently. - It will be over only once I get that half a point."
