New World Chess Champ

Magnus Carlsen

(Chennai, India)
Indian media Saturday said a new world order had dawned after local favourite Viswanathan Anand was outplayed by Norwegian prodigy Magnus Carlsen in the battle for the world chess title.

Carlsen, the 22-year-old reigning world number one, won three games and forced a seventh draw on Friday to achieve the victory mark of 6.5 points in Anand's home city of Chennai, the capital of southern Tamil Nadu state.
Congratulations to Mr. Carlsen! It's been 38 years since the last Westerner, Bobby Fisher in 1975, held the chess title.
