Magnus Carlsen and Vishy Anand drew games 7 & 8 at the World Championship in Chennai, India so the young star maintains a two point lead. See GM Ian Rogers report for analysis of the two decisive games



"Both players are very popular, but with Magnus you see a new kind of player who transcends chess. He is attractive, he does modeling – having someone like that playing at such an incredibly high level can only help build the game."
