What did we just witness??? I've never seen a game like this. A piece of my chess world has been turned on its head.

I feel certain that Carlsen's moves in this game were nigh-suicidal. Anand played almost all the moves I wanted him to play/would play myself. And then in 25 moves he had already lost???

Here is my video analysis of the game, where for 2+ hours, I'm unable to crack the insane new way Carlsen played this game:


And here's a pgn viewer for the game and variations discussed above:

Hope that leaves everyone else as excited, tantalized, and satisfied as me!
