After the surprising victory obtained yesterday by Fabiano Caruana over number 1 in the world rankings, Magnus Carlsen, the Italian-American continued his winning streak on Day 2 of the 5th Chess Masters Final after beating Sergey Karjakin, thereby placing himself at the top of the provisional leaderboard in the first round of the tournament being played in Sao Paulo. Caruana's lead has been favoured by a draw between Olympic champion, Armenia's Aronian, the only one who can catch up to him after his victory on the first day and India's Viswanathan Anand.
