This is a Game 2 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. Anand has .5 points and Carlsen has .5 points going into round 2.

Superb commentary! Thank you.
Excellent commentary, thank!
Thank you for your analysis. Nice work.
@ TJ10gamos: Thanks for your input! I hadn't considered the dangers of 14. Nxd7 ... it would have been a very messy position after that.
@chesscrave1 I'm not a 100% sure, but I believe 13. ... Bxh4 fails to 14. Nxd7 when the queen can't take back *Otherwise the bishop is lost by 14. ... Qxd7 15. Rxh4* So after 14. Nxd7 black either retreats the bishop losing a knight for a pawn or continues with 14. ... Bxg3+ 15. Qxg3 Qxd7 16. Qxg7 when I believe the rook is trapped. Although I'm not sure the exact follow-up for 14. ... Kxd7 but of course, Anand knew what he was doing.
A very nice commentary. Thanks.
Thanks for the analysis of game 2. That part about the potential 9. Qxd4 10. Nxf7 Kxf7 11. Bg6+ K/Bxg6 12. Qxd4 was very instructive for me!
I think 18....Kh7 would be a better reply though =)...after 18...f5, White could just 19. Qg6 which will force black to 19...Kh8.....White then would want to place his rook on h1 to g3 adding more pressure to white's King side and if you'd take a look at it White could just give up his pawn on a2 after which the Black Queen will have a hard time helping to defend on the Kingside...jsut my opinion though =)
Thanks for your commentary! I was wondering why 13. .. Bxh4 isn't good. Any thoughts?
Thanks for all your hard work Jerry!
