Anand got off to a great start in the World Championship match with Carlsen today, scoring an easy and quick draw with black.

Here's my quick look at their game (plus match predictions):

Really excited for this match, and looking forward to the next 11 games!!

Edit: in game 2, we will get to find out what Anand's choice of first moves is vs. Carlsen! I'm guessing he'll repeat this Nf3 g3 anti-theoretical opening of Carlsen's.... just kidding! I'm guessing 1.e4 and a Ruy Lopez.
