    But in one or two games didn't he have an advantage but took a draw instead of fighting for a win? If future championships will follow this pattern they may as well be cancelled. Eventually interest will wane so they will become a non event.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    I was referring to the tie-breaker.

    In those matches that you refer to, at least there were wins and losses exchanged. In 1987, Kasparov had to defeat Karpov in the game 24 to tie the match and keep the title.

    Whilst a lot of the commentary here is making a lot of hu ha about the twelve draws, I think most of the criticism should go back to the match length, not the twelve draws.

    Increase the match length, have rest days after three games, not two, and I think you would find that the match would be much more interesting as both players repertoires would be tested, both for breadth as well as depth.

    Article by Peter Wong as mentioned in the ACF Newsletter about the actual number of moves to mate in game 6. I like this sort of thing.

    But the objection I was replying to was that Carlsen could not win a classical match against his challenger. Yet unlike those other matches, Carlsen did not have draw odds going in.
