Carlsen in world championships: the 2016 match
Compiled by alexmagnus
--*--

After successfully defending his title in 2014 against Anand (Game Collection: Carlsen in World Championsips: the 2014 match), Carlsen got to play the next defense in 2016. The challenger determined was Sergey Karjakin. It is the third World Championship match in history in which both players are born in the same year (after Lasker-Janowski and Kramnik-Topalov), and the World Championship match with the smallest summary age of players ever. The latter is probably not surprising, after all both the champion and the challenger started off as chess prodigies.

Karjakin's qualifying path, backwards:

Winner of World Championship Candidates (2016)

Winner of World Cup (2015)
