Carlsen did a great job of proving what Anand had said a few days ago: if someone wants a draw against the Sicilian, it can be found too. He played very clearly and comfortably to keep Anand from ever developing any real play-- until an equal endgame emerged. There still remained a big imbalance, and the two titans played out a very instructive and precise endgame, leading to a draw with no pieces left on the board.
Here's my video analysis:

It's been fun! And there's still lots to study and learn from this match. My thanks to both players for a fantastic show.
well played magnus
watching Aronian playing, one thinks, how entertaining can chess be. Wonder when Carlsen will start to play the Bovitnik
Thanks a lot
Congratulation to Carlsen, The World Chess Champion!
you're very welcome, Matthew :-)
thanks for these david... a pleasure to see your analysis.
Congrats to the new King winning the Championship match! But maybe we shouldn't call it a "match" - the original meaning of the word "match" is to place (one) in conflict with (another)."
Or we could call it one-game match as the only game that sparked real interest was game nine.
The 2003 interview with the legendary David Bronstein, "The Sixteen-square Fraud" may give you hint on where the art of chess has gone:
Part 1, Chess is no more a game
Part 2, When chess was more than a game
Part 3, Soviet Chess school - should we admire or pity it?
Part 4, Modern chess - just another big scam?
what did you expect from the games? (i'm very curious :-) )
hmmm interesting...I keep expecting something more from each game and not getting it...I did like game number 8 though :)
The best chessplayer in the world has become Worldchampion ! And he's from Norway! Thanks a lot for your couverage - hope to see more from you on that site again :-) All the best!!
Just to show everybody draw is the more probable outcome of a Sicilian in a masters game:

Seriously, this is getting embarrassingly honeyed
