This is a Game 1 review of the much anticipated 2013 World Chess Championship match between defending champion Viswanathan Anand of India, and the challenger 22-year-old chess prodigy Magnus Carlsen of Norway.
thanks for the awsome video
Thank you for the great analysis!
I think most of the games will be draws. There will be eight or nine draws, two or three wins for Carlsen, and a win for Anand.
Thanks again as always... Love your vids! Cheers!
Very excellent video.
Great video! Enjoyed the recap, keep up the excellent work.
I have a feeling that Carlsen's distaste for draws will become an apparent weakness as the match continues. He is itching for blood, and very likely this will drive him to do something rash. I think that Anand intentionally pushed for the draw to provoke this weakness.
what do you guys think? Am I just too optomistic?
Thanks Jerry. As always, I did get something out of it.
Nice commentary. Keep it up. Also, it will be nice if you give some info on previous games with similar openings and the response from the players.
Thanks for the livestream and review.
Thank you Jerry - I enjoyed it!
Excellent comments. It's very interesting and instructive to hear comments prior computer analysis, as we're exposed to the real thought process of stronger players, which is invaluable. Missing a tactic along the way doesn't deter from the value of this commentary in any way.
Thank you, Jerry. The effort is much appreciated!
