    From the BBC: World Chess Championship: Magnus Carlsen retains title

    The first 5 days after the weekend are the toughest.

    Our national broadcaster NRK sent every game, from 15 minutes before the first move to the very end, each day they played. I watched it all, and what a thrill it has all been since 9th November!
    Yesterday was the most intense and listening to chess commentator and expert Torstein Bae in studio was more thrilling than any finish in any sport.
    I know only the basics of chess, but this is really "my" game.
    What happened Monday, when Magnus had the lead and best position after move 30 and he had pressed Fabiano on time, and then offered a remis...., one can only speculate.
    Magnus received a lot of negative critique after that, but I belive this was a calculated move from him in his pursuit for the World Champion title.
    And it worked out for him. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

      I'm afraid I didn't even know this match was happening. It was not heavily reported here, probably because there was no British interest. But thankfully the BBC did report the final outcome. By all accounts it was an intense battle fought by two well matched players.
