I woke up this morning ....

I've just woken up to see a couple of results from the Candidates tournament that have thrown the whole thing wide open. Both leaders (Caruana and Mamedyarov) lost overnight, which means that there are now 5 players within half a point of the lead.
The most significant result is Karjakin's win over Caruana, as they are now tied for 1st place, although the most surprising win was Ding Liren over Mamedyarov. This was Liren's first win of the event, after he had drawn his previous 11 games.
With 2 rounds to play I think Caruana still has the best chance of winning, but after last nights results, anything could happen!
