Superstar chess duel kicks off

‘THOR OF CHESS’:Magnus Carlsen, reigning champion and part-time model, and Fabiano Caruana, the first American since 1972, tied their first game in seven hours


“It could have been better,” Carlsen said. “At a certain point it was very promising... My head was working well, but obviously the conclusion of the game shows that I still have things to work on.”

Caruana suggested that he was pleased with the outcome after 115 moves.

“I had a very strong feeling that I was losing for a number of moves,” he told reporters.
