No...FIDE conducts the World Chess Championship every two years. The World Chess Championship has been undisputed since 2006; the complications of unifying the previously fractured world championship led to World Chess Championship events in 2007, 2008, and 2010. Now that those complications have been resolved, the World Chess Championship will be held every two years. The next match will be in 2012...the challenger for the World Champion (Viswanathan Anand) will be decided at the Candidates Tournament to be held in May 2011. The winner of the 2012 World Championship will defend his title in 2014.
Viswanathan Anand became the first world chess champion in 2007. He defeated Russian opponent Vladimir Kramnik. He has won it in 2008 and will try to defend in again in 2010.
