  An Englishman: Good Evening: Odd how the silicon monsters disapprove of so many moves by both players. Seemed like a nice attack by Black, but evidently he won by making "the second to last blunder," as Tartakower once quipped.
May-11-20  SirChrislov: bit of an embarrassing game for Karjakin.
17.f4 is suggested by ginger gm.

Karjakin's performance, +1 -1 =6, I wouldn't say is poor, but unexpected for recent challenger to the world championship.
