This is a game 6 review of the much anticipated 2013 World Chess Championship match between defending champion Viswanathan Anand of India, and the challenger 22-year-old chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen of Norway. Anand has 2 points and Carlsen has 3 points going into game 6.
This is great! Thanks for a clear and understandable analysis. The length is also perfect.
The Carlsenator, he makes it look so easy.
excellent clear explanation of moves. thank you for the video.
If Ra1 black will go for the Re6-e1 maneuver.
If after Re6 white tries Rf1, black replies not with Re1 but rather Kf3 cutting off white's king and Re1 to follow.
I am an amateur. Very little knowledge of Chess other than just to play what I feel like. Probably can rate at 1300.
I just wanted to check with the experts here - Why did Anand move his last move Ra8. Instead, if the move was Ra1, with my understanding, Anand would have never lost and if Carlsen made the slightest of mistake could have even won the game. My point is Carlsen could never queen the F pawn. Request the experts to throw some light on whether my thought process is correct
Thanks! Its not over yet for either player...
I think we will have a new world champion-Magnus Carlsen!
These videos are great! Thank you for posting them.
This match is bringing in a new perspective to amateur players (and possibly to professional too): I feel like Carlsen is standing in front of us saying: opening preparation, continuously looking for strong novelties out of known openings, was overestimated. Get back to just playing chess!
(of course this does not mean that you can disregard opening preparation at all)
I still believe that Viswanathan Anand will back to the game
If this continues, we might have another Emanuel Lasker vs Capablanca match where in Lasker didn't win a single game.
Carlsen will win this thing quickly now!
