    Irrelevant to my point. Which was that Nepo leads with white for the whole match. At no point in this match will Carlsen have had more whites than Nepo. Have you got it now?
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    On the other hand it may be even riskier to play the Sicilian for the first time in the safety-first stage of the match, so if it doesn't happen in Game 5 or 7 it may not happen at all. Which is viable; Kramnik beat Kasparov with 1...e5 as his only defence to e4. But he may prefer not to paint himself into a corner.
