I'm Back as promised
Well... Game 2 of the WCC between
The Champion - Vishy Anand
The Challenger - Magnus Carlsen
was almost as BORING as the first game - draw in a mere 25 moves and even shorter as they ended in an hour and ten minutes - Especially in this game as Anand had a chance to play on with the initiave with 18.Qg4 instead trading Queens
Now, I think that Carlsen managed to psych out Anand !
Why?! - well...
He chose to play the Caro-Kan after 1.e4 and Anand wasn't ready to go into the complications in the caro-kan advance and instead chose the highly drawish 3.Nc3
Anand - Chose 1.e4 expecting 1...e5 and was fairly unprepared to try and beat the caro-kan...Fairly OK result with white
Carlsen - Used Anand's weapon against him and gained a fairly easy draw after a mere 25 moves... Good Result
Fans - BORED; 1st game was a draw in a mere 16 moves - 2nd game seemed to be a certain draw after 18.Qxd5 - Hopefully we get some action in game three when Carlsen returns from the rest day with the white pieces!
The games uptil this point have been good - But I hope (As a fan) that both the players play the games out until they reach a KvK or other drawn positions - The games are good, but the time and move amount are both sub-par
