Sergey Karjakin won this crazy game. Magnus Carlsen made many mistakes in this game. The biggest was Qe6 in move 51. Carlsen gave up the game a couple moves later when he released the mistake that gave Karjakin check mate possibility. Magnus Carlsen got so upset that he didn’t speak to anyone from the press, and didn’t attend the post game press conference. Sergey Karjakin is now the big favorite to win this and become Chess World Champion.
