The #1 ranked chess player in the world, Magnus Carlsen, battles the reigning World Chess Champion, Viswanathan Anand, in Round 5 of the 2013 Tal Memorial. Carlsen chooses the Rubinstein system of e3 and Ne2 in response to Anand's Nimzo-Indian Defense. Some games are computer-like in a sense where it's difficult to pinpoint where a losing side went wrong. We observe just that in this game, and it acts as the last encounter the two players will have until November of 2013, at which point Magnus Carlsen will challenge Viswanathan Anand for the World Chess Championship title.
Magnus has only 3 wins against Anands 6 with 20 draws. This is his worst record against any top level player..One thing is sure their rivalry would be one to follow.But it is still advantage anand
great analysis as usually, I think the reason carlsen should beat anand in the world championship match up is due to carlsen strenth at calculating. how can anand train endgame to match against some one whos clearly way above of everybody? yes, he better be prepared very well to come up with some good oppenings but still I dont see any chances for anand though anything can happen
You better get 2000 points. Your underrated, pointwise.
why dont Black 18. b5 to make White Queen withdraw?
A computer game that Magnus just copied and memorized? Thats a shame. The computer was rocking..lol..No originality? well, hope he has a collection of these to play in the WC in India.
My name is Magnus his name is Magnus soooo...
Clearly Anand is not in best shape
neither is Carlsen
which makes it harder to predict who will win the world championship this year
Very clear & concise analysis. I found it helpful & stimulating.
Outstanding video!!! Thank you!!
(Couldn't disagree with kosenc more.)
...too much talk in this video, sometimes boring...
Please be faster
Very interesting indeed, thanks for your insight I greatly appreciate it. Best wishes, John C.
Thanks for your clear analysis of this very surprising game. Usually Anand is very solid in the opening, so it's impressive that Carlsen was able to knock over his king so quickly here.
I'm no chess master, but I'm guessing that a little more can be said about where Anand went wrong -- I agree that there is no obvious error, but the computer does seem to really dislike his move 21...Qd7, so maybe there's some alternate defense there that works better. Also, his moves 17 and 18 seem to put him on track for a positional plan that doesn't really work -- probably it's sounder for Anand to keep the bishop on the left flank rather than tying himself in a knot by trying to reposition it to the kingside.
Great video, Jerry, as always, thank you very much!
Anand will win the WCC in 2013 but lose it Carlsen in 2014.
Great Vid. Keep up the good work!
Thanks Jerry for showing that Anand had no good moves at the end there.
