Mug Shot

Today could bring a new World Champion of chess if Karjakin beats Carlsen in the 12th and final game of their title match in New York.

A draw would force tie-break games, to be played on Wednesday (Carlsen's birthday!).

Meanwhile, here is a relic from the first World Championship final I saw in person - a titanic Kasparov vs. Karpov match at the Park Lane Hotel, fully 30 years ago!
