Carslen vs. Anand: Magnus on His Way to the Title?

So far, there was some excitement in Chennai, but you could hardly say that the tournament was satisfactory. It missed what really is the core value of every sport: Victory and defeat. Magnus Carlsen decided it’s time to be decisive. He won two games and drawn another two, leaving his opponent baffled.

The fifth game of the match saw Magnus playing white. This was the real Carlsen we know – pushing the opponent step-by-step out of their comfort zone, to the places they really don’t want to be. For time, the game seemed like another draw, but that’s the magic of Magnus’s style – getting the most from little opportunities. And the opportunities came with Anand’s every little mistake.

Watch the game here:

If you watched the sixth game at the tournament’s official website, you would probably notice that the moves were seldom displayed in colour other than blue. It indicated, according to computer analysis,  that the most optimal moves were played. Nevertheless, Carlsen managed to beat the World Champion.

Watch the game here:

Seventh game did not bring much excitement. Anand played white again, as the sides were switched in the middle of the tournament to accomodate for the advantage of playing white after the rest days. Carlsen’s only duty was to remain calm and defend against Anand’s toothless offensive. It wasn’t much of a difficult chore. Anand did not show much initiative, hardly challenging the world’s top rated player. The game ended after 32 moves.

See for yourself:

The last game so far lasted only 33 moves, one more than the previous. Carlsen himself said, that his intention was to set a trap or two and if this does not work, to shut the game down. And that was just what he did.

There are at least two more games to be played – on thursday and friday. Let’s see if Anand gets up, or gets stomped into the ground.

    Please set the automatic moves on the games that show for example the moves by Carlsen/Anand to be a bit slower. (Increase the delay between moves to twice the current speed?) No time to think while paying attention…
