Anand Draws With White, Trails 4.5 – 5.5
World chess champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway defended well and drew Viswanathan Anand with the black pieces in a rook ending after 32 moves at Sochi, Russia on November 21, 2014. Carlsen leads the series 5.5-4.5 and two games remain to be played. Anand kept the chances alive with mid-way through but quieter alternatives on turn 24 and 25 allowed black to equalise and walk away with a draw in a double rooks and pawn ending. Saturday is a rest day.
Anand Draws Game Nine With Ease
World champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway obtained nothing with the white side against the Ruy Lopez, Berlin variation and drew in 20 moves against Viswanathan Anand by perpetual checks. The score stands at 5-4 in favour of Carlsen. In the last three games, Anand plays two white games and needs to win both to regain his title he lost at home in Chennai last year.
Carlsen Draws Anand With Ease In Game Eight
World champion Magnus Carlsen of Norway revealed strong preparation with the black pieces to hold challenger Viswanathan Anand to a quick draw in the eighth match at Sochi, Russia on Tuesday. Carlsen leads 4.5-3.5 with Wednesday being a rest day. Four games remain to be played. Two-third of this match has gone down in history. The champion Magnus Carlsen holds a slender 4.5-3.5 lead with four game still to be played. Many of the games were thoroughly fought until a clear verdict is on the table. Carlsen might be considered boring but playing out these equal positions can push some players to blunder material or lose the positional grip and so on.
Anand Draws In 122 Moves, Carlsen Leads 4-3
Game seven was drawn after 122 marathon moves, the second longest world championship game in history. This one lasted six hours and 25 minutes, only shorter than Korchnoi-Karpov, 1978 game that lasted 124 moves and ended in a stalemate in Baguio City (Phi). For the first time in the match, Anand played the Berlin variation of the Ruy Lopez with the black pieces. Kramnik had criticised the choice of Anand playing the Sicilian Paulsen that led to his defeat in the previous game.
Lucky Carlsen, Back In Lead 3.5-2.5
In a see-saw sixth game, Magnus Carlsen of Norway blundered his centre pawn on move 26 and the challenger Viswanathan Anand failed to seize the opportunity. A rare event for a world championship match.
