Carlsen confrims his participation in the WC match against Anand in Sochi

After the supertournament has finished in St. Louis, in which the world champion finished second three points behind Fabiano Caruana who demonstrated an exceptional performance, Magnus Carlsen signed the contract for the World title match against Vishy Anand.

"The hard" according to Carlsen's manager Espen Agdestein decision was made shortly before the deadline prescribed by FIDE. The violation of the deadline could lead to Carlsen losing the title and Sergey Karjakin (he finished second at the Candidates) becoming Anand's opponent.  

The photo of the signing has been tweeted by Magnus. The permanent assistant of FIDE president Berik Balgabayev confirmed receipt of the document: "FIDE received the signed contract! Carlsen - Anand match will be opened in Sochi on November 7 as planned! Welcome everybody!". Thus, two months are left till the match starts.
