In the third game, held today at the Fairmont Hotel in Baku, Azerbaijan, Karjakin won with the black pieces to reduce the overall score to 1-2.

It was a fairly complicated position of the Sicilian opening where Svidler made two consecutive mistakes and his position simply collapsed. White resigned on move 30.

In the most exciting World Cup final ever all three games so far ended with decisive results. The fourth and last game with the classical time control is starting Sunday 3pm local time.
