GM Karjakin's Life Story

If you've been watching the 2016 Candidates Tournament on Agon's official site, Worldchess.com, then you've undoubtedly seen the cartoons with the short bios for the eight players.

A few weeks ago I featured one of them in GM Svidler's Headwear. Now here are excerpts from the cartoon for GM Karjakin, The Winner and New Challenger (for the World Championship).

The drawing on the bottom could be captioned 'Last Man Standing', which pretty much sums up the dog-eat-dog atmosphere surrounding the Candidates event, where only one player gets the big prize.
