New World Champion

Magnus Carlsen has defeated Vishy Anand to become the new World Chess Champion at age 22. The match was scheduled for 12 games, but only 10 were necessary. After 6 draws and 3 wins, Carlsen got the draw he needed today to win the match by 6.5/3.5.

For anyone who isn't aware, Carlsen became a GM at age 13, and is the highest rated player of all time at 2870 FIDE. ( This converts to around 280 ECF!).
