At the end of this round, Carlsen continued his one-point lead with 5.5 points, to Anand’s 4.5 in the 12-round match.

Carlsen is just a point – a win or two draws – away from retaining the title which he had effortlessly wrested from Anand last year.

The 11th round will be played Sunday with the players resting Saturday. (IANS)
