Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand drew the ninth match of the World Chess Championship on Thursday, in a match pundits described as "boring".

Magnus Carlsen and Vishy Anand drew the ninth game of the World Championship in Sochi. The game finished after just little more than an hour.

Norway's Carlsen now leads 5-4, and, even though he didn't manage to exploit his advantage playing with white, he is one step closer to retaining his World Champion title.
 
Several chess experts considered this game a rather "boring" encounter, and were surprisingly quick to agree a draw was a fitting result for this tame match between the Norwegian and the Indian.
