Does Anand even have a "puncher's chance"?

  • #61

    the low rated patzer was a joke :)

    I'm sure that Anand has been focusing on prep rather than his recent games, but he is starting to slip with age. His big advantage is his prep and experience, not strength.

    Carlsen's jab is too good. It will keep Anand on the outside looking in. It will also keep Anand's combinations from hitting their mark. Carlsen will always win the in fighting, as he does against everyone...

    I see Anand winning this match by +1

    I find it difficult to find any info about this match. (amount of game etc.) But i think Carlsen will be the strongest after it all.

    I like both the players though I am rooting for Anand but all I want to do is enjoy their games.

    Of course, this all must be very embarrasing for Anand. He is obviously just a low rated patzer.

    Everybody wants to bury Anand.  Once upon a time he was everyone's favourite.  He is a total gentlemen.... met and played on 3x occassions Simuls, Dinners, etc...

    Enormously talented.  I read a recent article by Mihail Marin, Schach 11.  Objective, not over the top, and thoughtful.

    Maybe, he has other priorities,... a wonderful baby son and he has secured his financial future and his name in chess.  So maybe this is just another paycheck that he will put away for Baby Anand's future.  

    He really is a human being and not ONLY a chess player.

    And remember everyone buried him after Gelfand beat him last match,... 

    Kramnik 'thought' he was better,... and got spanked.

    Karpov never got over his spanking;

    and Topalov,... 

    AND he just recently created the modern Rotweli vs. Rubinstein game,... Lodz 1906 against Aronian... Roweli was not even considered a 1st class player at the turn of the 20th century.

    Do not 'under-estimate,' him.  You can be sure Carlsen does not.
