KASPAROV, KARPOV AGREE TO ADJOURN 16TH GAME

Gary Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov adjourned the 16th game of their World Chess Championship for a second time Sunday, battling through another five-hour session without a result.

The game began Saturday and was adjourned after 40 moves over five hours. Analysts said Kasparov, the reigning champion, had an advantage, but he was unable to beat Karpov after 48 more moves Sunday. The match was to resume Tuesday evening.

Through 15 completed matches, the two grandmasters are tied with 7.5 points each. They have had three draws in the French portion of the championship, after 10 draws in the 12 games played at New York.
