They had a great deal of excitement in November: Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana are trying to overcome the dexterous skill margin to achieve the crown of the World Chess Champion. Until now, the task has been very difficult.
After 12 games, rivals will be starting this afternoon at 4:00 p.m. A 9-minute competition called Armageddon.
Carlsen is three times the world champion, and the first champion is seen at the beginning of the month. After playing 12 matches against the Challenger Caruana, all 12 drawings, experts ask if they lost their famous nerve.
However, Carls will be historically stronger in the fast-form chess that will be played in races. In this format, nowadays it has its first place in the world, and at Caruana 18. But the American Challenger should not be underestimated. This is the first time in the World Championship when they are drawn in the regulation time, a testament close to both men.
They will see the last season of the tournament in a soundproofed room in London, in a few hours.
