Ding bounces back

After starting the 2020 Candidates Tournament with 2 straight losses, Liren Ding has bounced back with a 3rd round win over Fabiano Caruana. The opening was quite complicated, and even with the help of an engine, I still have no real idea about what was going on. All that mattered was that Caruana sacrificed two pawns, didn't get enough compensation for it, and Ding then carefully converted the ending. With the other 3 games drawn, the field has now closed up, with the players all withing a point of each other.
