In the night of Tuesday Moscow time in new York hosted the third batch of the match for the world chess crown between the current champion Norwegian Magnus Carlsen and the Challenger for the title – Russian GM Sergey Karjakin.
Like opening two fixtures, the third game, which lasted six hours and 40 minutes, ended in a draw. Carlsen couldn’t convert the advantage of white pieces, and in the next round it will go to Karjakin.
Thus, after the three parties in opposition preserved the original parity. The score is 1,5:1,5.
“Maybe I couldn’t win at some point, but I didn’t see options for quick sequels. It was not easy anyway, but of course I’m disappointed” – quoted post-match statement Carlsen TASS.
“I think I play in the third game was harder than Magnus. Of course, I am very glad that is not lost,” – said Karjakin.
The fourth party will be held on Tuesday, November 15.
The winner will be determined in 12 games with classical time control. If the score remain equal, the November 30 will be held the tie-break with a shortened control and, if necessary, blitz.
Recall that for the 26-year-old native of Simferopol Sergey Karjakin is the first match for the world chess crown, which Carlsen in 2014 was selected the Indian Viswanathan Anand.
