Chennai: Indian chess Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand on Tuesday defeated World Champion Magnus Carlsen in 34 moves in the third game of their world title match held in Russia, in the process breaking the "Carlsen Jinx" bugging him since losing the world title to Carlsen last year.

At the end of the third game in the 12-game match, both the players have 1.5 points each.
