WCC R9: Game 9 Drawn

The position was very dangerous for Carlsen just before the time control but the Champion was able to save the game and go into the final three games trailing by a point. Carlsen will have to pull himself together and play his best chess to keep the title. Game 10 is scheduled for Thanksgiving Day.

The score is 5.0 - 4.0 in Karjakin's favor going into the last three games.
