World Chess Championship 2018: Fabiano Caruana vs Magnus Carlsen – Game 9


After the game, Magnus Carlsen declared that “I was very happy with the opening, obviously. You cannot expect more than what I had for sure.

With few rounds remaining, a tie-break becomes a distinct possibility, where Carslen is considered the favorite.

Despite the anticlimactic draw, a new record was set: the longest streak of games ending in draw in a chess championship match!
