Draw – Level: 0.5: 0.5
Saturday, November 10th, 8:11 am: After the USA's Fabiano Caruana received the disappointing player of world champion Magnus Carlsen during the first day of the World Championship, the duel will be taken straight into the second round. Already this Saturday at 16 o'clock the second game is designed in London.
Opening the World Championship: Carlsen has to solve betting
Friday, 9 November 2018, 23:30: At the start of the World Championship, Magnus Carlsen and his US challenger, Fabiano Caruana, have drawn a wager. The dominant world champion in Norway rewarded several opportunities for winning and did not work until seven o'clock.
Caruana opened the game with an e-soldier with a double challenger, and Carlsen responded unexpectedly to the Sicilian defense. The master was well prepared and won a better position after opening. The 27-year-old left no response but several times the opportunity to decide and allow the Caruanan exchange for women.
Carlson had one more soldier and he typically tried to mislead his opponents until 115. made mistakes. But 26-year-old Caruana stood firmly and secured the start of the World Cup.
The second game will take place on Saturday. Carlsen then begins with white stones. The World Cup is designed for twelve games. Who gets 6.5 points first, crowns the world champion.
If there is a node, tiebreak is happening. The winner of the walk gets one point, in betting both players have 0.5 points. The prize money is one million dollars.
The final is open
16:00: The first no more than 12 games will start in London at this time. Have the outsiders Caruana succeeded in putting Master Carlsen in the first game?
German chess fans can hope
14:58: Before the start of the World Cup, there are still news from a German perspective. Chess player Annmarie Mütsch from Heilbronn recently won the first junior gold medal for Germany at the age of 13 in the Youth World Championships in Greece. At Porto Carras, 16-year-old wins 8.5 points out of 11 games in front of Honorata Kucharski (Poland) and Goyal Sanskriti (India).
Before that, Elisabeth Pähtz had brought gold to Germany last year at the World Youth Championship in 2005 at the U20 World Cup. "Under this heading my luggage would like to recommend myself to the women's national team," said Mütsch
5 Important questions before the first chess point
1. Why does Carlsen play against Caruana in the World Cup?
Because defending champion Carlsen is set. When he was the second youngest world champion at the age of 22, he defended twice the chess world in 2014 and 2016. In March, Caruana conquered seven of his opponents in Berlin's nomination tournament, giving him the right to challenge Carlsen.
2. Who is the favorite?
Like the last time ever, Carlsen. The 27-year-old has grown for a long time since he was a childhood tournament as one of the most historic chess players. Since July 2011, "King Magnus" was world-wide uninterrupted, and the Elo rating was 2882 at the highest value of the game's strength so far, and also brought five world championships with fast and lightning fast.
3. Can it be a surprise?
Not so small. After all, Caruana is undoubtedly shaped like life. Miami-born 26-year-old Italian rookie is ranked second in world rankings behind Carlsen. His record high against Dominator last year is also only a bit negative. Eventually, he challenged Carlsen in the prestigious Sinquefield Cup in a really hopeless situation at least a wager.
4. What is the status?
Up to twelve games are played and the correct opening changes. Every other day is a rest day. The win is a point if, in the case of betting, both opponents receive half. If a player reaches 6.5 count early, the duel will end. If the tie is after the twelfth game, such as the 2016 World Cup between Carlsen and Russian Sergei Karjakin, a smaller playing time is played.
5. Where can you watch the games?
Live pictures of players are only available on the official website of the organizer via the pay-as-you-go stream.
33 times both face each other
12/19 at: Carlsen is an undisputed number 1 in the world of chess and since 2013 the world champion. He won the title against India's Viswanathan Anand five years ago with 6.5: 3.5 and defended him one year later against the same opponent at Sochi 6.5: 4.5. He made a little more exciting in 2016 against Russia's Sergei Karjakin: after 6: 6 Carlsen won only 3-1 tiebreakers.
The defending champion leads the world rankings, but Caruana only tracks three points instead of the other. It's a wink in the chess. 33 times the two chiefs of the classic chess are already meeting each other. The game ended with a draw 18 times, Carlsen won ten times, Caruana five times. This is the world champion's favorite in the race.
11:53: "This time it's a real duel," Carlsen says, admitting: "It's the world champion has become a part of my identity and that's why it's a lot, I do not care much about being a world champion but I do not want it to be anyone else," he says 27 years old Norwegian. "It's a little shameful, I have to admit, that's not it." This statement in Carlsen's view is good: the best chessboard in the world curses their opponents without profit and shows their dissatisfaction clearly.
09th November, 09th of November at: This Friday, November 28, World Champions Carlsen and Caruana are fighting in London. There are 12 games in the program. If the score is 6: 6, the champion has been assigned a tie-break for game tours. One million dollars (875,000 euros) is in the premium pot.
