[Event "FIDE World Championship 2016"] [Site "New York, USA"] [Date "2016.11.28"] [Round "12"] [White "Carlsen, Magnus"] [Black "Karjakin, Sergey"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [ECO "C67"] [WhiteElo "2853"] [BlackElo "2772"] [Annotator "Llewellyn,Alan"] [PlyCount "60"] [EventDate "2016.??.??"] {Basically this game is a non-event, neither side wanted to slip up at the last moment so Magnus allows the Berlin Defence (known for its lack of a win for either side) and Sergey goes entirely along with that plan. Magnus used up an incredible 17 minutes (because it is so small, for such an important game) to play the 30 moves, and Sergey wasnt far behind on 27 minutes. That takes into account the 30 seconds added after every move played. I won't annotate the game as no mistakes, or interesting moves happen.} 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 Nf6 4. O-O Nxe4 5. Re1 Nd6 6.

As soon as the rules were adhered to the match ended with the draw tied at 6 - 6. I will repeat the tie-break rules, mentioned in the game 10 text:- a rapidplay tie-break and then if necesary, a blitz match series will occur to determine the winner. The rules for this are as follows in the rapidplay tie-break 4 games will be played of 25 minutes plus 10 seconds increment, if still even after that a Blitz rapidplay of a series of 5 x 2 game matches will be played of 5 minutes and 3 second increment if no winner after each 2 games is played occurs then a sudden death game will decide matters with white having 5 minutes and black 4 and 3 second increment after move 60. A draw in the sudden death game will mean victory for black. The colours (of who starts as white) will be decided by lots before the start of each section. The tie break will be on the Wednesday 30th November (incidentaly Magnuses Birthday)-the results should be up by 1 am in Britain on the 1st December.} 1/2-1/2
