Carlsen did a great job of proving what Anand had said a few days ago: if someone wants a draw against the Sicilian, it can be found too. He played very clearly and comfortably to keep Anand from ever developing any real play-- until an equal endgame emerged. There still remained a big imbalance, and the two titans played out a very instructive and precise endgame, leading to a draw with no pieces left on the board.

It's been fun! And there's still lots to study and learn from this match. My thanks to both players for a fantastic show.
