The World Championship will be decided in tie-breaker games after the regulation portion of the match ended in a tie, 6-6.
Magnus Carlsen will play rapid, blitz and potentially Armageddon against Sergey Karjakin to decide the 2016 World Chess Championship after the last classical game of their match ended in a damp squib.
