Calsen beats Anand to become the World Chess Champion

BBC News:

Norwegian chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen has become the world champion, beating Indian title holder Viswanathan Anand.

Carlsen, 22, secured a draw to win the World Chess Championship in 10 games, with two left to play.

Carlsen won the match in Chennai, India, with a score of 6.5-3.5. The win means that Carlsen achieves the record of having the highest new rating of all time.

He could’ve easily become the youngest to secure the title, but you can’t challenge and get into a championship just like that. Congratulations, Carlson!

    I thought it will be more exciting battle. But for Carlsen it was like baby walk. Will anybody can stop him now? Aronian, Nakamura?
