World Chess Championship 2018: Fabiano Caruana vs Magnus Carlsen – Game 12


Carlsen offers a draw from his superior position and Caruana accepts! This is quite disappointing. Susan Polgar said on Twitter that “Carlsen’s legacy has suffered a great deal. I cannot say 100% but most GMs would never offer a draw with Black, which has very little risk. This is simply shocking! All 12 games are drawn!”

The winner will be decided on Wednesday, November 28. They will play a series of 4 rapid games, if still tied, 10 blitz games, and if still tied (let’s hope NOT!), they’ll play a sudden-death Armageddon.
