Peter Leko on Game 12 and the Tie-Break of the World Chess Championship 2018

Chess grandmaster Peter Leko analyzes the course of the World Chess Championship 2018 between world champion Magnus Carlsen and Fabiano Caruana in London.

He himself could already play against Carlsen as well as against Caruana and knows the strengths of both players.

In addition, he predicts what will happen in round 12 of the Chess World Championship in London and how he estimates the chances of both players in a possible tie-break match.

We are looking forward to the further course of the World Chess Championship!

Many thanks to Peter Leko for the informative interview and your chess world championship forecast!

Peter Leko: "Don't be fooled by the draws. We've seen an incredible fight."
