The destiny of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) World Cup will be decided by a tie break after world number one Magnus Carlsen of Norway and India’s Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa drew once again.

Their second game lasted only 30 moves.

Carlsen had been suffering with food poisoning for two days before the final.

"If I have some energy, if I have a good day, obviously I will have good chances, but Praggnanandhaa has already played a lot of tiebreaks against very strong players, I know he is very strong," Carlsen admitted.

"I didn’t think he had a lot of energy, I didn’t think he was unwell," Praggnanandhaa said.

"Tomorrow, I just want to come with a fresh mind, I will try to rest today, it is very important because I've been playing a lot of tiebreaks here. 

"I have to be ready for everything."

Meanwhile, in the third place play-off, Fabiano Caruana forced a tie break with his win in the second game against Azerbaijani home favourite Nijat Abasov after a match which lasted nearly four and a half hours

"Nijat has won a number of tiebreaks, he is playing well, even today, I don't think he played a bad game," Caruana conceded. 

"In terms of preparing for the tiebreak, I will just try to rest as much as possible, This is the main thing for me," 

Both tie breaks will be played tomorrow.
