Both players made their moves quickly at the start of the
game, with Karpov playing white, but slowed down as they sought
a breakthrough toward the middle. A draw was eventually agreed
after 49 moves, Itar-Tass news agency said.
The 45-year-old Karpov won the first match last week but Kamsky, 22, who defected from the Soviet Union to the United States in 1988, drew level at 1-1 Saturday.
The World Chess Federation (FIDE) title match is being
played in Elista, capital of the semi-autonomous Kalmyk Republic
of Russia, between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.
The winner needs 10.5 points -- one point for a victory and
half for a draw. If they are level after 40 days and 20 games,
the match will continue until one of them wins another game.
Victory for either contestant will be tainted by the fact that world number one Garry Kasparov is not challenging because of a split with FIDE.
The next game will start Wednesday.
