Carlsen-Caruana Update

The 2018 World Chess Championship match between Magnus Carlsen (Norway) and Fabiano Caruana (USA) in London has finished the first set of 12 games. All games were drawn, which is both extraordinary and a new record. The previous record for the number of first consecutively drawn games was 8. So the score is 6-6.

What happens now?

On Wednesday 28th November, up to 10 tie-break quick play games will be played to decide. If there is still no winner, then a sudden death blitz game will be played, where if the game ends in a draw, the player playing with the black pieces will be declared the winner.
