Attacking Anand is a E4 player only...Carlsen choose a different opening...Carlsen want flexibility in the opening
Another meaning of flexibility means ability to play all types of game (O,C,SO) all there...
Carlsen will try to play close or semi close game..since once the major peices are exchange draw becomes easier
The way this Wch is going
and Magnus Carlsen is playing .
The opening (open-semi open -close) do not matter
only thing matters is the endgame.
Using Software during game play is not a fair game...
But you can utilize it after game to improve ur understanding,leaning & games.
Gaining the tempo is fine...but you need your pieces for attack....otherwise none of the side developed but other side having materials advances is wated.
But how can be a software be used to increase the understanding?
I actually dont know because I never used it....May be to annalyse a complex situation....but pro & Con only you can tell..not engine
FUNNIEST GAME EVER.
