World Chess Championship 2018: Fabiano Caruana vs. Magnus Carlsen
by Jerzy Konikowski & Uwe Bekemann

The duel for the crown of the world's best player has been the absolute highlight of international chess since the beginning of tournament chess. In November the world champion was determined in London in a match over 12 games and a tie-break – between the title defender Magnus Carlsen from Norway and his challenger Fabiano Caruana from the USA.

In the run-up there was no doubt that an interesting showdown was to be expected, as the two protagonists were holding the first two places in the world rankings. Accordingly, the chess world was feverishly awaiting this event. After winning the Candidates Tournament in Berlin earlier this year, the American Grandmaster had also shown great form at numerous other top events, and his accomplishments left no doubt that he was an absolutely worthy opponent for the defending champion.

In this book all the games are analyzed in detail and commented in an entertaining and understandable way. In addition, it also offers a close look at the framework conditions and the events that led to the finale. So you will find, for example, chapters like 'The Opponents in Short Portrait' and 'The Previous Fights of the Protagonists'. Then there are interviews with various top players and experts under the title 'Predictions Before the Fight' – rounded off by a playful opportunity to compete with the champions: 'Try to Find Combinations Like Carlsen and Caruana!'
