The Classical World Chess Championship 2000 was held in London, UK.
Garry Kasparov (Elo 2849) defended his title against the new challenger Vladimir Kramnik (2772) in a 16-games-match. Kramnik won because he was better prepared in his openings especially in the Berlin Defense and won the match with two wins, 13 draws and no losses and became the 14th world chess champion.
Grandmaster Varuzhan Akobian looks back at Game 10 of the historic "real" 2000 World Championship. Kasparov could not defeat his challenger once in this match, and this is a notable game.
