The 2012 World Championship of Chess!

    Houdini's first line is draw by perpetual check. It is a very calm game compared to the last one.

    Forth Game               

    In this one Anand's Scottishness has been recognised & the game honourably named after the '''Firth of Forth'', Scotland !

    Quite obvious that the last thing Gelfand wants is a draw ...

  • #284

    There's a tie break? I thought 6-6 and the current champ kept his title.

  • #285

    Is it considered improper in this situation for Anand to offer a draw? Should he wait for Boris do so instead?

  • #286

    Anand looks like he's ready...

    Yep. Tie-breaks if necessary.

  • #288

    Anand is very well prepared in Slav.Gelfand should change his strategy or unleash a well -prepared novelty if he wants to have some chance for a win with white.

  • #289

    Darn, again. The moves that the GMs find obvious, like Black's last two moves of b6 and Rd6. Not obvious to me at all. Obvious only after I hear the explanation. Tongue out

    He sure does. He looks almost annoyed.

  • #291

    Well, I definitely prefer Aronian to Kramnik, Anand or Gelfand.

  • #292

    Anand is Scottish?

  • #293

    Yes , his family were highlanders

    There definitely wouldn't be a draw if I played Anand.

    Gelfand has definitely shown that he is Anand's equal thus far. I tend to think that will put pressure on Anand to play riskier.

    Yes they say it's not chess Sealed

    Does he want to move the knight back and forth? Don't see what it does apart from not weakening your position.

  • #300

    Dunno, but he sure calculated for a looong while before putting the knight there.
