The 19th game of the world chess championship, scheduled for Monday, was postponed at the request of Anatoly Karpov, who has fallen behind in the series.

After Karpov’s loss Sunday to reigning champion Gary Kasparov, the score stands at 9 1/2 for Kasparov and 8 1/2 for Karpov. The 19th game will be played on Wednesday, organizers said.
