Russian chess grandmaster Sergei Karyakin gave an interview prior the beginning of the 2018 Candidates Tournament in Berlin on Friday.

Karyakin said that he had a “very persistent match” with World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen two years ago and “was close to the victory” but “lost on additional games.”

Karyakin said the match was so difficult that it took “almost a year” to recover after it.

Though the Russian grandmaster was “upset” that he “didn’t have enough to win,” he realised that he had to continue and start a new page of his “chess biography.”
