Magnus Carlsen after the quick draw against Aronian: I used the same line against him in the 2013 Candidates

Magnus Carlsen maintained the leadership of the 2022 Sinquefield Cup as he drew the 2nd round game against Levon Aronian. The game finished in an uneventful draw, without many chances for any of the players to seek for a better result. In the post-game interview, Carlsen explained that he used the same variation in the Candidates Tournament 2013 against Aronian, adding some improvements in yesterday’s game. He added that there was one critical moment in the game where Aronian could have chosen a more aggressive approach, but the game kept a calm pace until the very end. “I think nobody really loves these games, but at this level, they happen“, he concluded.
