Magnus Carlsen drew for the eighth time against Vishy Anand in the tenth game of the World Championship in Russia on Friday, to maintain his lead 5.5 points to 4.5.

The Norwegian needs just one more point, or a victory, to win another title. With victory in the next game on Sunday, he would settle the World Championship fight. If it's a draw, there will be a twelth game, where Carlsen will only need a draw in order to secure his victory.

Challenger Anand held a small advantage during many parts of Friday's match, but never managed to exploit the advantage he had playing white.
Carlsen defended well against his Indian rival and a draw was a fitting result for both men.
