    It was just great to be able to say we played against Anand. I thought (perhaps wrongly) that we were not supposed to discuss moves before voting. Because it was hundreds of people voting, the move has to be the most popular, even if it is not the best. I found it fascinating. I was one of those who was pleased to suggest the draw. It's only a game (I always tell myself that if I don't win!).

    I'm surprised it wasn't Anand that won.  It was part of a set of simul games, though.

    Kasparov would have won. It's a real shame he retired... And coming back to this event, I think it was a real let down.

    It was sad. I'd rather have lost the game than seeing a draw by repetition. Is this the world champion? What a shame... FIDE should change many rules in order to avoid excessive draws, otherwise chess championships will become more and more boring - see what happened in Anand vs. Gelfand this year. Really, it was a shame. Was he in a hurry to do some other thing? Did he suspect there were players using engines? We weren't playing finely - it was a vote chess and I disagreed in some moves (especially from 10th to the end). I thought we should have made use of a potential space advantage on the king side and have pushed our pawns forward, and do not have them blocked by a pair of knights, but these are my thoughts and it was a vote chess. So, I was disappointed with the match.

    His nickname is Drawnand and it is a simult.  I was positive the result would be a draw.
