Answer to Chessdoggblack's question: Anand
I also have read that Anand some analists saying that Anand doesn't want to waste his energy in a uselessly. But I think the tone of the match benefits Anand, I doubt he would want an open war and exchange of knocks... that could benefit Carlsen. I think as long as the match keeps even Anand will stay relax and we have to see if Carlsen can keep fresh or overpress in some game
well, it was not my idea, some people pointed at that, I wouldn't know how to evaluate it thought it looks good to me, I can't raise my opinion above the players' own. But, I think Anand wasn't unhappy with a draw today, that's why he exchanged the queens, this under my perception of things. Also a lack of ambition or aggresivity has been spotted often throught Vishy career. I once heard that the problem with Anand, the reason why he hasn't won more tourneys and been a dominating player was that he was excessivily good person and lack of the aggresivity of players like Kasparov who just wanted to destroy the rival.
good point, Pablo, I've added a variation with 18.Qg4, which I'd failed to consider.
i prefer the second option
how much will it last if they play a real game?
he didn't streak back, Anand took the draw, he could have played Qg5 instead of the exchange, but Anand was under control, imho.
