Carlsen does it again??
This was an absolutely amazing win he scored. The rook and pawn endgame must absolutely have been a draw, but he came up with some very clever ideas, and Anand just did not defend them well.
Also, it seems that it was Anand who chose to sacrifice a pawn to go into this rook endgame with Qg3... a slightly strange decision. I think this was definitely not one of Anand's best days. Hopefully he can recover and play his best in the next couple games.
Here's my video:
Tomorrow's a rest day, and then Anand has white again in game 7 on Monday. I feel pretty confident at this point that Magnus would repeat the Berlin Defense.
no, i specifically don't know the result, because just knowing the result can really bias how you evaluate things along the way. also, it's more exciting for me not to know, and it makes me more engaged in trying to figure out what's happening as i play through the games. you may notice that towards the end of this particular video, i was surprised when Carlsen suddenly won :-P
it's a friend of mine who sends me the pgn without result every morning in my email, and i start up the video without having looked at headlines, chess sites, or twitter feed (using a direct link to live chess, so i don't accidentally see anything on chess.com).
David, when you are watching your treat in the morning, do you already know the result? I wonder if you try to avoid looking at the result, since the interface you are using is showing only the moves.
congrats to Carlsen, but I hope Vishy is studying and overcomes future Berlin Defenses from the Challenger
it's already been shaved mr. aa, but i certainly don't choose whether or not to shave based on what someone else tells me to do.
you should look at me sometimes hahaha
david have you been living with al-qaeda in a cave? shave your damn beard. You look like a hobo.
Anand has about the same chance against Carlsen that Kaspy had against Krammy.
Many interesting thoughts that would never come to an amateurs mind
