The deadlock is still there as Magnus Carlsen and his challenger Fabiano Caruana played out another draw in Game 10 of the World Chess Championship in London.

The marathon game 10 looked like giving a result after Caruana made aggressive moves on the board. But the 27-year-old Norwegian put up a Sicilian Defence.

With two more games to go and the draws becoming a trend, it is difficult to say if there will be a result after it. When the action resumes on Saturday, the world champion with the white pieces would be expected to be more attacking and look to seal the match.
