Russian grandmaster Sergey Karjakin and current world champion Norwegian Magnus Carlsen played a draw in the 12th batch of the match for the world chess crown, which takes place these days in new York. Now the winner will be determined on a tie-break on Wednesday.

12th party, in which Karjakin was playing with black pieces, lasted 35 minutes and was the shortest in the match. GMS shook hands, having established by rules obligatory 30 moves.

Thus, the champion and Challenger spent the agreed dozen matches with classical time control, but the score in their confrontation remains equal to 6:6. The opponents have won one victory, and the rest of the ten games ended in a draw.

Now the winner will be determined on a tie-break. It starts with rapid – four games with time control 25 minutes + 10 seconds per move. In case of parity will be held five blitz matches of two parties with control of 5 minutes + 3 seconds per move.

If this does not help, then the opponents have the Armageddon match, in which the player white will have five minutes at four the enemy, but obliged to win.
