Reigning champion Carlsen all square with Caruana after game 10 of World Chess Championships

Reigning chess world champion Magnus Carlsen salvaged a draw against challenger Fabiano Caruana in game 10 of their 2018 FIDE World Championship Match in London, England, UK, to leave the final deadlocked at five points apiece.

The Norwegian needed all of his trademark nous to get himself out of some tight spots against American Caruana, but he did enough to halve the game after a 54-move, five hour and 19-minute marathon to make the best-of-12 series all square with two games remaining.All ten matches so far have been drawn with neither player able to grind out a victory – the most consecutive draws to start a title match in history. Each win is worth a point and each draw a half point, with the first player to reach 6.5 points declared the world champion. If the scores are level after the 12 games, four tie-break games will be played after a rest day to decide the contest.The best-of-12 game match has a prize fund of one million euros, with 60 percent for the winner.
