Norway's Magnus Carlsen, left, plays against reigning world chess champion India’s Viswanathan Anand during the Chess World Championship match in Chennai, India, Monday, Nov. 18, 2013. The 43- year old Anand  has the advantage of playing at home in India, where he is treated as a super star. The 22-year-old Carlsen is the top Western player since Bobby Fischer in a game that has traditionally been dominated by Russians, and chess enthusiasts hope his mass-market appeal can win over new fans and help boost interest worldwide.
