|World Championship Perks Up in Round Three|
|November 12, 2013|
The World Championship match in Chennai, India (November 9-28) began with three draws. The first two were short, but the round 3 battle was an intense struggle in which GM Magnus Carlsen had to fight for the half point. We also saw an unusual case of a "fianchettoed queen."
In round four, Carlsen played the Berlin and was the one pressing.
Other big news out of Chennai includes FIDE Presidential candidate Garry Kasparov's appearance.
