    Tournament results don't mean nothing!!!!!!!!

    Carlsen did just take Anands Championship title........

    For all the talk of Anand's preparation, the Aronian game seems to be the only time recently somebody has walked into it and got a really bad position early. It also shows he isn't holding some mythical game winning preparation back.

    Since before the World Championship, Anand's barely been winning any games, and Carlsen lost two long games in 2012.

    To compare Anand's 'strong preparation' vs Carlsens 'weak openings', you'd think Anand was the one pushing for a win in most of his games, and Carlsen struggling to get anything going. Looking at tournaments, it's clearly the opposite. Carlsen is getting positions he likes more than his opponent, isn't that what opening play should be about? Not some objective +0.4 on Houdini.

    I'm not saying that Carlsen is an opening master, getting great positions, but it's clearly a style choice, and you'd be hard pressed to say it isn't working for him.

    Not to forget all the "The match was too short to say anything about who is the stronger player of the two!!!"

    Yes! I forgot about that.

    Thank you, fablehaft!

    I am sure Vishy's "Superior Match Experience" would have come to bear in that case.

    Varelse1, fabelhaft:

    Carlsen won. Be happy.
