Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Chess king Carlsen has one-word response after beating Russian rival in longest-ever epic (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Beating the Russian in the sixth game of 14 following five successive draws, the Norwegian took to social media.

The pair's latest encounter was described as a "grueling back-and-forth marathon," and broke records for being the longest game in 135 years of world championship matchplay history. 

It took in 136 moves and 7 hours and 45 minutes, which surpassed the 124 moves executed in a title match between Nepo's compatriots Anatoly Karpov and Viktor Korchnoi in 1978.

Both players missed out on winning opportunities under the extreme pressure of the clock, but Nepo felt that "Magnus managed to capitalize on the very few chances he got".

That's it! A historical, record-breaking game ends in a victory for Magnus Carlsen. #CarlsenNepopic.twitter.com/fSWKjrCu1x
