Carlsen defeats Caruana in the tiebreak and remains world champion


Magnus Carlsen dominates in rapid chess and defends his title against Fabiano Caruana 3-0.

In the end it was a clear matter. 3: 0 Magnus Carlsen outclassed his challenger Fabiano Caruana in the rapid chess tiebreak, which had become necessary due to the 6: 6 in the games with classical reflection. The planned fourth rapid-chess game did not have to be played on Wednesday evening, because Carlsen was already unassailable in the lead.

For the second time since 2016, the Norwegian could thus win the World Chess Championship only in extra time. But just like two years ago in New York against Sergei Karjakin, after the successful tie-break, the world champion looked as relaxed as he had not been seen throughout the world championship.
