IMO Anand had a great performance, and proved one again the self-evident: He is a tiger- probably a slightly aged one, but he really made Carlsen feel uncomfortable.
I think Carlsen was not at his very best- at certain cases it seemed to me being slightly lazy, ill, dunno what. Still, he won the match, simply because he was the one who made fewer mistakes, as Anand admitted after the match. But it was not easy at all, like the previous match: Black defintely had his chances to turn it over, but he did not have the stamina to demonstrate flawless play OTB.
Can You please evaluate here idea behind Anand's Rb4. I was astonished he did that, and could not see "great plan" behind it.
I am not Anand, so you can take my comments with a fairly generous grain of salt.
Vishy envisioned ousting the d5 kight by ...Kb7 and ...c6, when he has access to white's weak queenside pawns (c4, a4).
The real problem with that plan is (as flawlessly demonstated by Magnus) white can create issues on the other flank by a timely f2-f4, when Black has no time to mop up the queenside.
Yes, but for his plan to work, Magnus had to make at least one mistake there, and I wanted to see where :)
