MOSCOW, November 25. /TASS/. World chess champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway defeated Russian chess grandmaster Sergey Karjakin in the tenth game and evened the score of the ongoing FIDE World Chess Championship Friday.
After seven straight draws, Karjakin claimed the first full-point Tuesday, playing black, but Carlsen retaliated and evened the score Friday. After the tenth game out of 12, the score stands at 5.0:5.0.
The 11th game will be played on Saturday, and Karjakin will play white.
The opponents are to play the maximum of 12 games, and the winner will be the first player to score 6.5 points or more.
If the score is tied after Game 12, scheduled to be played on November 28, a four-game rapid chess match will be held two days later, then five two-game matches of blitz chess if necessary, and finally, an Armageddon game will be used to break the tie.
