Carlsen is new chess king
Carlsen Is New Chess King. Norwegian challenger Magnus Carlsen was crowned the new World Chess Champion as he beat defending champion Viswanathan Anand 6.5-3.5 here on Friday.
Five-time world champion Anand loses tamely. Tenth game ends in a draw
Chennai: Norwegian challenger Magnus Carlsen was crowned the new World Chess Champion as he beat defending champion Viswanathan Anand 6.5-3.5 here on Friday.
The 10th game ended in a draw giving Carlsen the needed half point -- and also the coveted world crown.
The Norwegian made Anand suffer for a long and gruelling four hours and forty-five minutes before the Indian could heave a sigh of relief in what was the most one-sided world championship match in modern history.
Anand had won the world championship title five times — 2000, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012 — but ironically was dethroned in his home town of Chennai.
