Will Anand defend against Carlsen?

    Can you imagine a new match Anand vs Gelfand? It would be celebration of the real chess. The old masters who learned the game without computers! And further, what delight it would be if Boris Gelfand becomes World Champion at the age of 45. He will come close to the best player of all times - Vasili Smyslov who was playing for the title in his mid 60s.

       That`s an interesting observation , GreedyPawnGrabber!

       However, Carlsen isn`t really a representative of modern computer era. He displayed his classical (book) chess knowledge many many times. He knows all the old games, and the ideas behind the moves.

       On the other hand, Nakamura is a real `computer` thought chess player, as he claims..

       I suppose that could be the difference between those two, and the 100+ Elo margin , despite the talent both of them possess.

    Nakamura claims to have never read a single chess book and his training was completely computer based,Database coaching as he says.Maybe if he  had read some books,we might have been seeing a differen world #1 today.

    "I never read a chess book", " I never had a chess set"...yeah sure, like they jumped from zero to GM without going through the forest. Anyone interested in the game starts off owning a set, and then buying books to learn more.

    For all the talk of Anand's preparation, the Aronian game seems to be the only time recently somebody has walked into it and got a really bad position early. It also shows he isn't holding some mythical game winning preparation back.

    Since before the World Championship, Anand's barely been winning any games, and Carlsen lost two long games in 2012.

    To compare Anand's 'strong preparation' vs Carlsens 'weak openings', you'd think Anand was the one pushing for a win in most of his games, and Carlsen struggling to get anything going. Looking at tournaments, it's clearly the opposite. Carlsen is getting positions he likes more than his opponent, isn't that what opening play should be about? Not some objective +0.4 on Houdini.

    I'm not saying that Carlsen is an opening master, getting great positions, but it's clearly a style choice, and you'd be hard pressed to say it isn't working for him.

    Not to forget all the "The match was too short to say anything about who is the stronger player of the two!!!"

    Yes! I forgot about that.

    Thank you, fablehaft!

    I am sure Vishy's "Superior Match Experience" would have come to bear in that case.
