MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. The victory of Russian grandmaster Sergey Karjakin in the FIDE World Chess Candidates Tournament in Moscow will give a powerful boost to the development of chess in Russia, Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told Tass on Monday.
Karjakin won the tournament, and will now play with the incumbent world champion, Norwegian Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen, in a match for the world chess crown in the United States in November 2016.
"We expected this result, hoped for it. Sergey did a good job, he coped," Mutko said. "This is a very important for us result. Karjakin’s victory will give a powerful boost to the development of chess sports in our country," the minister said, wishing him success in New York.
He once again thanked the World Chess Federation giving Moscow the opportunity to host the tournament.
Karjakin and Carlsen will play in New York on November 11-30.
