World Chess Championship 2018

This is  a pretty big event in the Chess world as Magnus Carlsen looks to defend his title for a third time, it also is the first time since 1996 that an American, Fabiano Caruana, is in this match and he has the chance to be the first American since 1972 when Bobby Fisher took home the title.

They are four games into the 12 game series, and have tied each game, if they are tied at 6 after the 12 games they will go to a tie breaker round with 4 games of rapid chess, it it is still tied it will go to five matches of best of 2 of blitz chess, if they are still tied it goes to a Sudden Death, Armageddon chess where there will be a winner as Black.
