Say hello to the new Chess World Champion

The national hero of India, Viswanathan Anand, lost the title as chess world champion. After game 9 the score stood 6½ - 3½ in favour of Magnus Carlsen, leaving no chance for Anand to catch up. Things have been looking good for Anand on the board in some of the games though, especially in game 8. But he seriously blundered and threw it all away.

Carlsen has been very good at using his king actively in the endgames. Remember the king is very important in the endgame, and should be centralized, to help support and attack pawns.

Congratulations to Magnus Carlsen with the new title!

Here is the endgame from game 8. The position leaves no way for either of the kings to penetrate the opponent's aream and ends in a draw.
