The 2012 World Championship of Chess!

trysts

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 ...

Scottrf

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

keju

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

trysts

Anand looks like he's ready...

Yep. Tie-breaks if necessary.

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.

keju

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.

Scottrf

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

keju

Anand is Scottish?

Michael-G

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

Scottrf

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

keju

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