The 2014 World Chess Championship between Magnus Carlsen & Vishwanathan Anand begins on Saturday in Sochi, Russia
The World Chess Championship Match between World Champion Magnus Carlsen and Challenger Vishy Anand is taking place in Sochi, Russia on November 7–28, 2014.
It’s a rematch, and an unexpected one, between the current World Champion, Norway’s Magnus Carlsen, and the former titleholder, Viswanathan Anand of India.
Last year, on Anand’s home turf in Chennai, Carlsen — then just 22 years old — took the crown away from the 5-time champ. The match was scheduled for 12 games, but Carlsen needed only 10 to become the first World Champion from the West since Bobby Fischer in 1972 reported BS.
