Another win for Carlsen

 After the marathon effort from both players in game 6, it was hardly surprising that game 7 of the 2021 World Championship was a more peaceful affirm. But game 8 saw Carlsen pick up another point as Nepomniachtchi blundered a pawn in the middlegame. The second decisive game of the match sees Carlsen leading 5-3 with 6 games remaining. It will be a tough ask for Nepo to recover from this bad loss, although he does have a rest day today to think about his strategy for the remainder of the match.
