WCC Day 7

Hey Chess Fans,

Here's a recap of round 7 of the match between Anand and Carlsen

So far it seems as though Carlsen is just running away with the match as Anand will need to win 2 of the final 5 games without losing any just to qualify for the tiebreaker

So... What's gonna happen

Well I believe that Anand still has a legitamate chance of going to the tiebreakers if he can manage to play like round 3 where he got into a better position but failed to convert

However, If Carlsen can manage to play at the same level, then we've got ourselves a new WORLD CHAMPION!

So,,,, What do you guys think??

    The number [their rating] did not lie!!

    My vote is Carlsen (also my preference)

    Come on man! Carlen seldomly is off his game enough that someone is able to conjure up a slight advantage and then convert it into a win. When this does happen it's usually during a blitz game. Look at his statistics and games,do the math, and tell me Anand is going to play the two best games of his life in the next five games while Carlsen plays the worst games of his. It would take a miracle.

    Carlsen will definitely become the new World Champion, because he has a fighting spirit and plays for the win. Anand on the other hand is a tired old man who has lost his passion, and plays like a drawmaster rather than a World Champion, so common sense will tell anyone with the slightest bit of logic that there will be a new champion not an old one.

    Love Carlsen at the press conference:

    "I could not really be bothered thinking today" when asked why he played so quickly and the way he did.


    (my bad, wrong thread, that was after game 8)

    I'd like to see Anand win a game just to make it interesting.  But I think it's going to end after game 10 with a score of 6.5-3.5

    Best of luck Anand...

    @TheCosmicMoor: Do you have any proof of your wild accusations or is baseless paranoia just your natural state?

    Anand comes back

  • 13 months ago


    I think magnus is overrated but he was groomed to be the world champion by those greats of chess who saw to it that this moment was to come.I have not been keepin up with all these tourneys but there are some others waiting in line who could make an argument about Carlsons World championship. Hint: this is "STAGED" "FIXED" "SCRIPT" and Anand with nothing to play for or prove has passed the torch well before the match was set up.Fide and Chess in general needs a better way of proving a champion.

    The World champion of playing for draw will be defeated be the new World champion of playing for win.

  • 13 months ago


    Anand was two times in a row as white, he totally wasted those chances. Carlsen now has increased his chances to defeat Anand.

  • 13 months ago


    Magnus will win!

    I do not know the answer to this question, but I wonder when is the last time Carlsen lost two games in a stretch of five games. Has this ever happened to him outside of his childhood?

    Since Carlsen will be happy playing for draws from now on, Anand will have to come up with two jaw-dropping, bolt-from-the-blue brilliancies in the space of a week to pull even. Which I doubt.

    8. Nf1 is far too weak for Anand at such a time. In my amateur opinion, it looks like he really gave up the ghost here... so early, too.
