Overview

Magnus Carlsen Becomes World Champion! It was the match that the chess world had been anticipating for several years. Norway’s wunderkind, Magnus Carlsen had qualified as the official challenger for the world chess championship. He was facing the reigning world champion, Viswanathan Anand from India. Would Anand’s enormous match experience and years at the top be enough to stop the young Norwegian grandmaster? Magnus was heavily favored, and he did not disappoint. With the help of German grandmaster Karsten Müller, you can follow as the drama of the match played out in Chennai, India. He has annotated every game, providing insight into the battle for the title. To complement the author’s presentation, grandmaster Susan Polgar – the oldest of the famous Polgar sisters – shares her thoughts about the match in her foreword. She was there for the entire struggle providing coverage for the Indian organizers and media. Also included is a short history of the world chess championship, as well as color photos taken during the match. All in all, this is another fine book on the world chess championship by Karsten Müller.
