    I think most of the games will be draws. There will be eight or nine draws, two or three wins for Carlsen, and a win for Anand.

    I have a feeling that Carlsen's distaste for draws will become an apparent weakness as the match continues. He is itching for blood, and very likely this will drive him to do something rash. I think that Anand intentionally pushed for the draw to provoke this weakness.

    what do you guys think? Am I just too optomistic?

    Nice commentary.  Keep it up.  Also, it will be nice if you give some info on previous games with similar openings and the response from the players.

     

    Thanks.

    Excellent comments. It's very interesting and instructive to hear comments prior computer analysis, as we're exposed to the real thought process of stronger players, which is invaluable. Missing a tactic along the way doesn't deter from the value of this commentary in any way.
