New Delhi, Nov 23, (RHC), Norwegian Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen became on Friday the new world chess champion after beating, in the dispute over this title, his Indian counterpart Viswanathan Anan.
Carlsen secured a draw to win the World Chess Championship in 10 games, with two left to play and became the twenty-second universal champion, the second-youngest of all time, surpassed only by the legendary Russian Garry Kasparov.
The 22-year-old, who is called the Mozart of chess for his way of playing this harmonious and imaginative game, has brought to this sport the glamor of pop culture.
Garri Kasparov defined him as a mixture between Russian Anatoli Karpov and the United States Bobby Fischer, enriched by his image of young idol.
