NEW YORK -- On a dreary, rainy Manhattan night, a huge, happy roar arose in a crowd of chess fans from around the world.Two-time world chess champion, Magnus Carlsen, had just reached for a final, victorious move on Wednesday that crowned him a champ for the third time.He had beaten Russian grandmaster Sergey Karjakin with bold, aggressive moves in a series of tie-breakers capping three weeks of the World Chess Championship that until Wednesday was tied after 12 games.The setting was in a refurbished New York City building overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge that was once the citys fish market.On this night, it became a glittering gathering of hundreds of fans -- adults and children -- from Norway, Russia, the United States and elsewhere. They were riveted as the two grandmasters leaned over in the tense game, barely moving, in total silence and deep in thought.The fans paid $100 to enter, feasting on snacks and drinks as they kept their eyes glued to flat-screens that beamed close-ups of the chessboard in an inner chamber. A panel of soundproof glass shielded the players from onlookers, who could see in but whom the players could not see.Hungarian grandmaster Judit Polgar said the four lightning-quick games played on Wednesday were like Russian roulette.Today, the faster games are a great show even for people who dont know the game, said Polgar, considered the greatest female player ever.On Wednesday, the required mental strategies also played out on chessboards scattered around the spectator lounge. People hovered over them, trying out various combinations of pieces, mirroring the masters.Magnus is my hero because he takes risks, hes really exciting, said Pippa Millstone, a Manhattan 9-year-old who came to watch the tournament for her fourth time.The game is pretty even now, but I feel like Magnus is going to start attacking really soon, she said in the middle of the third of four so-called rapid games, each about a half hour long each, played as tie-breakers on Wednesday.Carlsen and Karjakin reached a draw in two, and the Norwegian won two for the championship.At crucial moments, spectators hushed, waiting to see what the next move would be. At times, one whispered, no, no when Karjakins choice seemed halting, or on the defensive.Even the winner missed a chance in one game, drawing groans and a few happy shrieks, depending on loyalties.Organizers said about 6 million people around the world followed the tie-breaking games, sort of like sudden death play in football.Most fans were in homes and clubs across the globe. Some spent $15 for a Pay-Per-View live transmission, others to watch via high-tech goggles in 3D virtual reality or by tracking moves on various free websites.The prize was $1.1 million divided between the two players, with the winner getting 60 percent.The New York championship did not escape the shadow of East-West rivalry reaching back to the Cold War days when American Bobby Fischer beat Russian Boris Spassky in 1972.This time, a key figure in chess was absent in New York: Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, a Russian businessman and longtime president of the governing World Chess Federation who was accused by the U.S. government of collaborating with the Syrian regime.---This story has been corrected to show the first name is Bobby Fischer, not Garry Fischer.

Belfort (24-10) needed just 77 seconds to down Henderson in the headlining bout of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson" event at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil.

Newcastle dominated in the early stages but City weathered the storm and then raised its game in extra time. Negredo broke the deadlock from close range after a simple move in the 99th minute before Dzeko took the ball round goalkeeper Tim Krul to seal the victory in the 105th. Mike McGlinchey Stitched Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. D. J. Reed Stitched Jersey . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. EVANSTON, Ill. -- Vic Law had a career-high 18 points, Scottie Lindsey added 17 and Northwestern opened its fourth season under coach Chris Collins with a 94-63 rout of Mississippi Valley State on Friday night.For Law, it was a triumphant return after all of last season following shoulder surgery. He played in all 32 games (19 starts) as a freshman two years ago.It gave me a new appreciation for the game, Law said. Last year ... when we lost a tough one, I would think about what I could have done to make a difference.Sanjay Lumpkin, Bryant McIntosh and Isiah Brown had 11 points apiece as the Wildcats won their ninth straight season opener. McIntosh, the teams leading returning scorer, was just 1 for 6 on 3-pointers.Law made 7 of 10 from the field -- including 3 of 4 on 3-pointers -- but was just 1 for 7 from the free-throw line.Marcus Romain led Mississippi Valley State with 16 points on 5-for-8 shooting.I didnt like the way we played defense at the start of the game, MVSU coach Andre Payne said. We got after it a little better in the second half, but that start set us back.Northwestern grabbed a double-digit lead 6 1/2 minutes into the game and never looked back. The lead was 46-28 at halftime and MVS never threatened in the second half.That first game of the season is very difficult from an emotional standpoint, Collins said. For us to come out and play the way we did early, I was very impressed.BIG PICTUREMississippi Valley State: The Delta Devils were 8-27 llast season -- including a 6-12 mark in the SWAC -- and another long campaign seems likely.dddddddddddd. Romain, the second-leading scorer in the SWAC last season at 18.6 points, is a bright spot.Northwestern: Coming off a school-record 20 wins last season, the Wildcats begin with the goal of reaching the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. To do so, theyll have to replace the leadership and production of Tre Demps, the leading-scorer last season at 15.7 points.THROW IT DOWNLaw announced his return with a steal in the backcourt and a flying dunk a few minutes into the game.I felt relief -- thats the emotion I felt, he said. It energized me for the rest of the game.BOUNCING BACKBrown, the heralded freshman from Seattle, was much better in the second half after playing just five first-half minutes from picking up two fouls. Hell be counted on as a spark off the bench to fill some of the void left by the departure of Demps.Hes the kind of guy that can change a game, Collins said of Brown. I think he was a real find for us.UP NEXTMississippi Valley State takes on a bigger challenge when it visits No. 20 West Virginia on Monday, the second of four road games to start the season.Northwestern has another tune-up game of sorts when it hosts Eastern Washington on Monday. EWU opened with a 70-47 win over Division III Linfield..
