    I don't know why Anand gave Carlsen such an easy game. The Queens were off early. If Anand wants to win, he will have to keep the queens on the board. For carlsen it's the other way.

    Hope Anand learn a lesson that he can't challenge Carlsen in this type of game, sooner or later, Carlsen will break Anand in such games.

    I am amazed that Carlsen is very good at defending and end-game. He is one of the best end-game players besides Fischer. But his middle game is off by a mile from Fischer.

    You see Fischer would have crushed Anand in end-game, and Carlsen in openings and middle game. Certainly Carlsen is nowhere near Fischer when he played Caro.

    What is now wrong with the Caro-Kann? Carlsen did get a fine position out of that opening.

    Fischer - Petrosian (1970) 1-0.

    #52 Petrosian would lose his knight (39....Ne4) to avoid mate like below:

    Carlsen would not have had any chance with Fischer on Caro - Kann. Fischer - Carlsen 1-0, Caro - Kann.

    I agree, although I wish it were not so. I hate to see kids beat up on old men.

    @Ziryab: Always enjoy your posts ... is the "old" man doing better than you predicted? :)

    Not yet. It is early. Carlsen will gain energy as they play long games; Anand's energy will diminish. I retain hopes for Anand, but I expect the rapid tie-breaks will lead to Carlsen's victory.

    I want Carlsen to win in 2016, and not this time. I never expected a blow-out, but I think that Carlsen will win. His lack of match experience may be telling, but he is as Paul Morphy was in the First American Chess Congress--capable of growing stronger with each game.

    As the match progresses I actually think Anand might have a even chance as Carlsen. Will probably be very tense match.

    Well it seems that this one is for Carlsen. I have no favorite myself. I just enjoy the matches.

    Neither. They keep forcing draws. It's about as interesting as watching paint dry at this point.

    Wow. Carlsen is up 4-2. Its over. Unless of course, Anand starts performing 3000!
