Carlsen surprised me by repeating a Nf3/g3 opening; then Anand surprised by trading off on c4, creating just the kind of long, maneuvering game that Carlsen is great at.
Here's my look at the game:
And here's a Viewer for the game and variations, so you can play through them at your leisure.
Tomorrow, I expect 1.e4 from Anand again, but I don't know if Carlsen will repeat the Caro. If I had to guess, I'd say yes.
That would be cool! We may see that! Today's analysis took a while, just finished. As soon as the recording processes, I'll post it.
I would love love love to see Carlsen play the 3...c5 Caro Advance.
Gloves off? You must be kidding. Chess is dead and burried. Here is what heavy fighting used to look like: a bury-him-half-into-the-ground bold style that the chess public REALLY enjoyed back then... There's no more respect for the game and for the public, this is the moment of final chess enthropy, or some would like to say it - a snafu...

ah, probably 29...Bxb2, which I did not even mention in my video. looks very strong for Anand. so, I guess at least I was right that Carlsen was in huge trouble suddenly and played e3 as a desperation move. And that playing e3 is bad because it opens the bishop, of course :-P But I guess here it saved him half a point in the messy position it created, compared to sitting and letting Anand advance on the qside without counterplay.
awesome David! :D do whatever version you prefer. :-) Harikrishna had good points to make in the live broadcast regarding Anand's missed opportunities [not playing Bxb2 earlier and after, not playing Rf8, Qd6 and Rxf2]
what happy face guy in the video has :)
Anand is showing strong.
don't know why Carlsen do not use his normal openings, quite passive today. He has luck Leko is second of Anand and the later ended up exchanging everything and giving back the pawn advantage
