Karjakin quote

How does a grandmaster mentally prepare himself before he goes into the most important game of his life? Is there a secret? This is the question that Karjakin asked himself before his last round game against Caruana in the recently concluded Candidates. Below is his response (given to RussChess.ru)


‘I was in such a mood as to let him (Caruana-editor) play for a win if he needed to, whereas I would simply try to play chess by making the strongest moves possible’-Karjakin
