    Game 1 ended in a draw. Magnus Carlsen had white. He played the Neo-Grunfeld. ECO: D71

    TThe first game was more effective at putting you to sleep than a dose of horse tranquiliser.

    Old man Anand does not have what it takes to go past 16 moves any more.

    Push him out the seat and find Bobby Fischer.... oh he is .... sorry.

    Ok how about Ruy Lopez...oh sorry again.

    Carlsen Jr?  Sorry again he is not born yet.

    Ok then bring back the boring Old Man.

    Actually Anand did well in the opening and at one point could have had an advantage but did not press.

    The fact that he did not press is not good for him. It may be  a sign of age or early fatique.

    While some would say the game put them to sleep this was a really hard game for both sides to play. Lots of complex variations.

    At last, somebody who agrees with me.

    Y'know, i wouldn't exactly say that it's Anand's stamina that is in question. I would venture to say he played the Perfect First Game Strategy vs the Wunderkind: tight, game management. Didn't get ahead of himself, played confidently. Obviously well prepped. Besides, the Onus (the pressure) was/is on Carlsen to live up to all the hype, and take it to Anand...not the other way around. It showed, consciously or unconsciously, in his (Magnus) play from his Opening choice to being virtually forced into the three-fold repetition claim. I enjoyed the game, though. Heh. Next!

    Anand played cowardly. Going for the draw and not the win.

    If this was an opponent you just played here you be screaming you want a rematch. And i am sure like many others Anand would run and not give a rematch.
