The second Anand-Carlsen game in the 2013 World Championship match also ended in a quick 25-move draw. This game started with a sharp opposite-side castling Caro-Kann, but then also ended in repetition. The critical move was move 18, where Anand had a chance to play for an attack with 18.Qg4, but instead exchanged queens and simplified the position to an equal ending.
