World Championship goes to tie-breaks

This evening’s final round (of 12) ended in a draw after just 30 moves.   It was perhaps surprising that Carlsen, who had the White pieces, seemed content to swap off and head for a rather tame draw.

Carlsen may be confident of his abilities at Rapidplay and Blitz, to which they are heading on Wednesday after another rest day on Tuesday.
