Hi Chess Fans,

The round three game was a very exciting one for all fans - the ups, the downs, the whole game was full of excitement no matter who you were cheering for or even if you were watching the game just for fun :)

So.... Let's get right to it

All right - now let's get down to business

Anand - Well fought game; had the initiative for pretty much the whole game, but failed to make it a significant advantage.... Great Game (The only thing that could make a game like this better is to have more time to calculate through a move like Bxb2)

Carlsen - Dubious opening choice, gave black almost immediate equality followed by the initiave - But he managed to hold on with "Carlsen" like defense which allowed him to "escape" with a draw.... Bad start - Amazing end so overall a decent game For Magnus

The Fans are the ones who gained the most out of this match. We actually were able to see three hours of two of the best chess minds go at each other with all that they got. I believe that this game will is the start of a brutal slugfest yet to come in the WCC 2013

So... Tomorrow Anand will be back from this game with the white pieces while Carlsen will be trying his best to pull of some magic with the black pieces

Who do you guys think will win game four and why ???????(Post in comments)

Thanks to all my viewers

Cya tomorrow

    Carlsen is the one who take initiative. If he wants to win the title, he have to risk, and this makes him volnerable. He must have a hell of a confidence to strike at gold, or else wait for Anand to make mistakes, risking making them himself...these three games was more of measuring each other, checking out the nerves, and Carlsen stabbing some real pressure; Anand absorbing it up to now, and doing great.

    I think, Anand will take a real swing at Carlen in the next game. Perhaps this is what Carlsen want, bring it on! This is where Carlsen creativity will eather get the upper hand, or where Anands consistant play will win it for him.

    The question is, what type of world champ are we looking for. What will define the future of modern chess? This championship will inspire modern players for years to come.

    Being correct, is being consistant. Taking risk, change outcome. Carlsen is gambling, and balance his trophy on a lance. What a nerve:)

    Carlsen is wasting his chances to win with white pieces. Every draw is good for Anand.

    psychologically - it depends whether Anand will be back in form (as good as this game) after missing moves like Bxb2

    Carlsen - He may be psyched out due to the fact that he was defending the whole game with the white pieces

    Could go either way (Or another Draw)

    Anand is impressing me so far. I begin to think he could manage to keep the title.
