    A very wise person called Skand had kind of predicted this possibility some months back as now Vishy would be playing without the burden of world crown, much more relaxed.

    I must say I am pleasantly surprised by Anand's performance, I couldn't help thinking Anand was passé after his rather poor Zürich results. As for the future I'd love to witness a Carlsen-Caruana match once (I indeed do not expect Anand to beat Carlsen this time) as Caruana is really young still and I think he actually stands a chance against Carlsen in a few years.

    That you did, good sir. That you did.  :)

    Also some months ago, I managed to get away with this post on the thread and not get censored. We all have our achievements!


     

    @Zapped: You really seem to be filled with Holiday Cheer! You've inspired me to compose this ditty and derail this undead thread some more.

    Go forth and spread joy! 
    Open people's hearts!
    Free  them from life's worries,
    until this season ends.
    Care for one another!
    Kindness and generosity is key! 
    Yuletide Winter's sounds
    only beat joyously without rest,
    uplifting all faiths, all humankind.
    Rejoice, let's make merry!
    Seasons greetings to one and all!
    Everyone's entitled to a little fun.
    Life's just too short for trolling forum threads,
    Fortunately, some threads live forever!

    Yes, indeed. How can we forget that unrhyming poem you inflicted on us poor, unsuspecting innocent bystanders :-). Well you must already be knowing why I am in such good mood today :-)) !!

    Vishy has done it WITH ONE ROUND TO SPARE!!

    @Shivsky: But you can do it if you put your mind to it. Your last two posts rhymed exactly :-)

    I just read a cool interview with Vladimir Kramnik who says Anand stands a much better chance this second time around. 

    Here's the link:

    Anand won the candidates and has his confidence back. In the first match he only scored 6 draws in nine games, so he almost has to do better in the rematch. I think the problems he faces are Carlsen's youth and superior strength based on their respective ratings. I just don't see Anand pulling it off, although I suspect he will win at least one game in the rematch.
