Norwegian grandmaster Magnus Carlsen on Wednesday (28 NOV. 2018) defended his world chess championship title after he defeated United States challenger Fabiano Caruana 3-0 in rapid tiebreaker games on Wednesday in London. After their three-week match ended in 12 draws, Carlsen wrapped up the victory quickly with three straight wins to build an unassailable lead in the best-of-four rapid format. The tiebreakers were played with 25 minutes for each player per game, while the 12 previous classical-style games lasted up to seven hours each. Carlsen pockets 550,000 euros (approx. 621,000 USD) for the win while Caruana gets 450,000 euros (approx. 508,000 USD.)
