Submission + - 22 year old Norwegian Magnus Carlsen is the new World Chess Champion

ardmhacha writes: Magnus Carlsen was able to force a draw in the 10th game of the World Chess Chamionship to claim the title with a 6.5 — 3.5 win (+3 -0 =7) over Viswanathan Anand. http://chennai2013.fide.com/anand-carsen-game-1-live-analysis-video/
Carlsen became the youngest ever World No. 1 in 2010 but withdrew from the 2012 championship cycle and so has only now been able to add the World Champion title to his No 1 ranking.

He won three games and lost none, his first two victories came when he was able to convert small advantages in the end game into wins. The third (in game 9) came after an Anand blunder.
