1.d4 (Again for the second time Anand played so!)
VC: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. Follow the round 3 game with us, WGM Videnova and GM Chatalbashev, as the action happens, and for more detailed material visit Chess Insider pdf magazine. Will Anand be able to bounce back right away? He was so close to equalizing the game, proving that the match is very different from Chennai. But the risks he can take today can cost dearly, as a point with black for Carlsen will be a big advantage. What will happen today? Still in time to make your predictions here
1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3 Be7 5.Bf4
VC: As expected, Anand is sticking to 1. d4 and we are now in the main topical position of the Queens Gambit declined
5...O-O 6.e3 Nbd7 7.c5
VC: In this setup Anand will go for a sharp opening, clearly showing desire for the full point
7...c6 8.Bd3 b6 9.b4 a5 10.a3
VC: Moves are coming fast, but we are still in deep theory. It is the work of Carlsen\'s and Anand\'s helpers in action, a clash of preparation
10...Ba6 11.Bxa6 Rxa6 12.b5 cxb5 13.c6 Qc8 14.c7 b4 15.Nb5 a4
VC: And we are still in very deep theory. All moves so far have been seen on the board, a top game to mention is Aronian - Adams from Bilbao Grand Slam Final 2013. The game followed 16. Rc1 Ne4 17. Ng5 Ndf6 18. Nxe4 Nxe4 19. f3 Ra5. There comes a first key moment of the game, where the best move for white is 20.fxe4 to play for advantage. Aronian went Qe2 and the game finished in a draw. We are still waiting for the key novelty the teams have created.
16.Rc1
VC: Another game to mention was Karpov - Georgiev from 2002, where after 15. Nb5 they played the different 15...Ne4 followed by the moves 16.0-0 bxa3 17.Qa4? g5 18.Bg3 g4! and Black had his chances (rapid game Karpov -Georgiev Dubai 2002). This is long time ago and theory has developed, as we see from the moves on the board. Of course the most modern theory can be found in the topical opening library of Chopin
16...Ne4 17.Ng5
VC: It is not possible Carlsen to have forgotten the game from Bilbao. Yet, he has a long think here. Is he trying to remember a novelty? Or is it a poker-bluff? If Carsen is contemplating something different, then certainly among the candidate moves is ...Bxg5 18.Bxg5 Ra5. This gives us time to take a look at two of the main opponents of Carlsen and Anand in the FIDE ELO rating list. Grischuk and Kramnik finished draw in Petrosian Memorial, securing the title and 2800+ rating for Grischuk and a return to top 10 for Kramnik. Tournament info and games here
17...Ndf6
VC: And there it is, the move that we already know from the Bilbao game. So why did Carlsen spend so much time?
18.Nxe4
VC: Confident Anand answers at once with the expected move.
18...Nxe4 19.f3
VC: Here comes the first key moment. How will Carlsen proceed? ...Ra5 is the move we already know, other options are ...Qd7 with a similar idea or the computer suggested ...Nc3. For example 19...Nc3 20.Nxc3 bxc3 21.Rxc3 b5 22.0-0 Qb7
19...Ra5
VC: And we arrive at the exact position that we mentioned in the commentary of move 15. It is the point where Anand\'s team is expected to have built upon.
20.fxe4
VC: Instant move by Anand! He knows what is best. Until now we were viewing the history of opening theory, now we are in the future of the line, live from Sochi
20...Rxb5 21.Qxa4 Ra5 22.Qc6 bxa3
VC: After a forced ...Rxb5 21. Qxa4 Ra5 Anand retreats the queen 22. Qc6. Again an immediate move. Magnus will take more time on this move, as it is a crossroad. If he goes for the \"e\" pawn with dxe4, then he will have doubled pawns on the b-file after 23.a4. If Magnus goes for bxa3, then Anand will strike the center with exd5.
23.exd5
VC: Most precise is Rxd5. All other moves like exd5 or a2 put Carlsen against in worse position. Of course 23...Qa8 is even worse when after 24. c8Q! Rxc8 25.Rxc8+ Qc8 26.Qxa5 Qc1+ 27.Kf2 Qxh1 28.Qa8+ Bf8 29.Bd6 +- Black can simply resign.
23...Rxd5
VC: Carlsen is precise. Although the rook does not support the pawn anymore, other options were leading to decisive advantages for Anand. Now Qxb6 from Anand, and Carlsen will have another big decision to make. Saying this, Vishy has double the time on the clock. Time trouble is far away, but if it comes to that, white will have big advantage.
24.Qxb6
VC: Now Carlsen has two main options, both aimed to untie the queen and still block the c7 pawn. The main move is ...Qd7 followed by ...Rc8. The alternative ...Qa8 is met by the beautiful Qb8
24...Qd7
VC: 25. Qa6 is a move to prove superiority in this game. Black will be forced to defend with Qc8 allowing extra freedom for white. The alternative Rc8? is not good because 26.Rb1, followed by Rb8 and Black will be forced to sacrifice an exchange (26...Rxc7), but even then his weak eighth rank will cause him many troubles for example 27.Rb8+ Bd8 28.Bxc7 Qxc7 29.Rc8! +/-
25.O-O
VC: Vishy keeps a great position and includes an extra rook in action. But this is the chance for Magnus to play ...Rc8
25...Rc8
VC: Rc6 would be a very unpleasant continuation for Carlsen, totally paralyzing Black\'s queenside. It also makes the Black\'s rook in the center useless and excludes Black\'s queen from the game. If Vishy wanted to go Qa6, he would have done it the move before.
26.Rc6
VC: Carlsen has to make a move and he does not have anything useful at hand. Activating the bishop with ...Bb4 is possible. But a move like ...Ra5 is met by the beautiful Rxe6. Carlsen lacks a plan and he has only 20 minutes on the clock, the situation is becoming very heavy for him.
26...g5
VC: Solving future backrank problems, but still the question for the active plan hanging. With the pawn on g5, after 27, Bg3 Ra5 28. Rxe6 Qxe6 29. Qxa5 Qxe3+ the black king safety is reduced too. Black is under a lot of pressure, even though with some freedom for movement.
27.Bg3
VC: Carlsen is World rapid champion and also World blitz champion and he is getting to a point where his fast chess skills will be needed. Time trouble is ahead.
27...Bb4
VC: Carlsen uses the moment that the rook on c6 is hanging to play Bb4-Ba5 attacking the c7 pawn. Anand needs to be active and attack the a-pawn with Ra1. Another annoying option after ...Bb4 is ...Rb5 in case of Rc2 starting a queen chase, but certainly c7 pawn is the most immediate problem for Carlsen.
28.Ra1
VC: Anand is brilliant so far! Fast and precise, showing how Black has no plan. And the time of Carlsen is running out, less than 7 minutes for 12 moves.
28...Ba5
VC: ... Ba5 was a blunder. Anand will win material 29. Qa6 Rxc7 30. Bxc7 Bxc7 31. Rxa3
29.Qa6 Bxc7
VC: And this is even worse than just losing an exchange after ...Rxc7, as Qc4 leaves him a full bishop behind! If Vishy plays the move the game is over and the score will be equalized.
30.Qc4
VC: Anand is rock solid today! Qc4 played and Vishy is going to rebound in a fascinating way
30...e5 31.Bxe5 Rxe5 32.dxe5 Qe7
VC: In the spirit of the game, Rc5 will now again pin down Carlsen. Of course Anand has other winning moves as well like Rc1 or Qc5. It is up to Anand to choose the one he likes most.
33.e6 Kf8
VC: Anand scores the full point! With a total \"c\" file domination, Anand proved superior in a very theoretical game of the Queen Gambit Declined. He improved on the game of his colleague Aronian and deservedly equalizes the match. A huge bounce back for Anand, and the match is wide open again. Thank you for following with us and see you for more live games analysis and commentary tomorrow! (current standings and statistics).
34.Rc1 - The blacks resign (in the original game) = (1:0)

47.Ra6 Kf7 48.e4 h4 49.Rh6 etc = (1:0)

1.e4( Again for the second time Carlsen played so!)
CB: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. Follow the round 3 game with us, GM Christian Bauer and WGM Videnova, as the action happens, and for more detailed material visit Chess Insider pdf magazine. Anand played a flawless game from the beginning to the end yesterday. Will the psychological balance be disturbed? Carlsen is one of the players that does not get affected easily, but if Vishy continues playing in such manner, we will be looking at a very different match than the one in Chennai. Still in time to make your predictions here
1...c5
CB: Sicilian defense! Anand goes for an opening that can lead to very sharp lines. A favorite move when you are looking for chances to score with black too. The variation chosen will play a very big psychological role today.
2.Nf3 e6 3.g3
CB: This move, as well as 3.d4 and other option we have seen to be played by Magnus in previous games.
3...Nc6 4 Bg2
CB: Carlsen often likes entering the Closed Sicilian games. This Steinz variation after 5. exd5 will allow a central buildup for white with c3 and d4
4...d5 5.exd5 exd5 6.O-O Nf6 7.d4
CB: In this moment ...Be7 was played by Carlsen in a blitz game vs P. Kostur in Astana 2012 review the opening line in CHOPIN
7...Be7 8.Be3
CB: This was seen in Short - Caruna (Tata Steel / Corus 2010) and other games.
8...cxd4
CB: It\'s interesting to notice that despite playing the Sicilian Defense, IPQ position arises on the board. This is more typical for Tarrasch defense
9.Nxd4 Bg4
CB: And there we have a novelty! Anand is the first who surprises today. The move seen so far was ...O-O (Adams-Kryvoruchko/ Tromso FIDE World Cup 2013)
10.Qd3 Qd7 11.Nd2
CB: White usually tried to play with an early Nc3 instead of Nd2. Now it can be stressed that if Black achieves the rather desirable exchange ...Bh3, he might get worried by the knight-sally Nd4-f5. With Nd2 instead of Nc3 White is putting less pressure on his opponent weakness at d5, meaning that Anand has got a good piece-play without serious concerns. All in all White has nothing special, but a playable position, typical a-la-Carlsen game.
11...O-O
CB: now N2f3 intending Nxc6 next Ne5, grabbing the two Bishops
12.N2f3 Rfe8
CB: Possibly Anand plans to meet Nxc6 bxc6 (Black should no take back with the Queen) Ne5 with ...Qb7, then Nxg4 Nxg4 hits the Be3, as well as the b2-pawn. If Carlsen then continue Bd4, then Bf6 eliminates the Bishop pair. Black\'s Knight is ready to jump to e5, or after Bxf6 Nxf6 to e4
13.Rfe1
CB: Vishy wants to keep his bishop active putting it on d6 instead of f8. It is a slow position and this move is certainly part of his preparation. Yesterday he admitted to have known the position at least until move 24. Today we are out of theory earlier, but whether Vishy knows the position, we will probably know at the press conference.
13...Bd6 14 c3
CB: As we said earlier, c3 is a very typical move in similar setups.
14...h6
CB: so both camps play useful semi-waiting moves c3 for White, ...h6 for Black. Anand can now think of ...Rad8, the annoying Bg5 being prevented. To be noted is that ...Ne4 always makes sense, but that would leave d5 temporarily unprotected. 15.Nb5 would come into consideration here for Black couldn\'t meet it with ...Bxf3. Then 16.Bxf3 Ne5 or Nxd6 Ne5 again, winning material. What else? 15.Rad1 has some logical as well, but the pinned Nf3 doesn\'t make it too appealing. 15.Qf1!?, intending to chase the Bg4 with h2-h3
15.Qf1
CB: A little bit about the character of the game. In IQP (isolated queen pawn) positions as this one, white tries to exchange as much light figures as possible, leaving the rooks and queens on the board. Black tries exactly the opposite, to avoid bishop and knight exchanges, and starts piece play. So here we see Magnus going for the kill with 15.Qf1!?, intending to chase the Bg4 with h2-h3. In contrast with game 2 (replay here), where Anand had very little possibilities, the current game is more unbalanced, and Vishy may as well get chances for activity. In fact piece activity is supposed to be the counterpart of possessing that structural liability, the isolated queen\'s pawn. If Black doesn\'t find a concrete follow-up now, 16.h3 Bh5 17.Nh4 may become a concern. Then g3-g4 would grab the enemy light-squared Bishop. That said, this favourable trade also has a prize : the weakening of White\'s kingside. Therefore, the computer suggestion, ...Bc7, has got its point : in the event of a future g3-g4 the battery Bc7-Qd6 would be nasty.
15...Bh5
CB: this prophylactic retreat threatens possibly ...Ng4. If 16.h3 now, then perhaps ...Bg6 17.Nh4 Bh7.
16.h3 Bg6 17.Rad1
CB: Carlsen is centralizing his rook, keeping an eye on the IQP
17...Rad8
CB: And so does Anand, the isolated queen pawn is the center of the debate. Now Nb5, Nh4, or even Qb5 would be the active approach for white. With so many nuances on the board, it is very interesting what the Norwegian will choose
18.Nxc6
CB: Of all possibilities for positional struggle, Carlsen decides to change the character of the game. He is completely opening the center with 18. Nxc6 bxc and a possible 19. c4
18...bxc6 19.c4 Be4
CB: This is a slight concession of Vishy in the position. A more aggressive approach with ...Rb8 or Qb7 (or even direct Bb4) would be more precise. The bishop on e4 now is aiming to protect the center, after 20. Bd4 Bb4 21. Bxf6 gxf6 22. Re2
20.Bd4 Nh7
CB: Anand did not like the double point on the \"f\" file and there comes a chance for Carlsen to make the cxd5 break.
21.cxd5
CB: In the long run Carlsen\'s play is surely connected to the pawn majority on the queenside.
21...Bxd5
CB: Bxd5 is a key moment in the game, Anand chose to leave his weak pawn on c6, instead of exchanging cxd5. It is hard to say which move is better, generally matter of taste
22.Rxe8+
CB: Exactly the plan mentioned for Carlsen can be executed now. An immediate Qa6 playing against the \"a\" pawn or Qd3 playing against the isolated central pawn
22...Rxe8
23.Qd3
CB: And here we are in a dream position for Carlsen. An advantage with slow torture for the opponent. Anand will have to show the best of his defensive skills here. We are far away from time trouble, but it is worth mentioning the clocks 35 to 45 minutes, ten minutes advantage for Anand. This might come handy.
23...Nf8
CB: Carlsen\'s move will be Nh4, activating his pieces, putting various threats. Vishy has to solve immediate problems, exchanging some pieces now might be beneficial. The correct reply will be ...Be5. After 24. ... Be5 25. Bxe5 Rxe5 Carlsen will want the f5 square for his knight and will chase away the rook with 26. f4 Re8
24.Nh4 Be5 25.Bxd5
CB: Equally valid idea by Carlsen 25. Bxd5 Qxd5 26. Bxe5 Qxe5 and still better for white. The difference of course is in the pawn being on the \"c\" file instead of the \"d\", only visually a tad nicer for black.
25...Qxd5 26.Bxe5 Qxe5 27.b3 Ne6
CB: Anand completes the knight maneuver. A this move ...Qe2 would have been a good option because now white will have the rather unpleasant Qc4 with ...Qb5 29. Rd7 a6 30. Ra7 Qxc4 31. bxc4. If 28. Kg2 then black has what he aims for with Rd8, so 28. Nf3 can prevent this too.
28.Nf3 Qf6 29.Kg2
CB: And there comes the exchange of the rooks after 29. ... Rd8 30. Qc2 Rxd1 31. Qxd1
29...Rd8
CB: Obviously Carlsen has got a riskfree edge here, due to his superior pawn-structure. Too few pieces are left on the board in order for Anand to generate play on the kingside, so that he will have to defend his a7 and c6 pawns. But with less pieces on the board the position is simpler. Now 31.Rxd5 cxd5 32.Qe5 remains a tad better for White especially if B trades queens, which would be strategically wrong.
30.Qe2 Rd5 31.Rxd5
CB: Indeed, in that event the white King would easily block the passed-d pawn, while the queenside majority means a considerable plus for White
31...cxd5 32.Ne5
CB: If they want to shake hands for a draw, here is how - Nd4 Qe4 Nc2 Qe2 Nd4. But this is the World Championship, and we will see the game going on
32...Qf5
CB: Precise Anand and he looks to have equalized the position!
33.Nd3 Nd4
CB: With Queens on the board, the d-pawn might on theory get strong.
34.g4
CB: A critical move. Carlsen wants to exchange queens and is ready to spoil a bit his structure for that purpose. Vishy will need to think carefully on this move, which might be the main goal for Carlsen. Both players are getting low on time.
34...Qd7 35.Qe5 Ne6 36.Kg3
CB: ...Qb5 here will hit the knight and activate the queen.
36...Qb5 37.Nf4
CB: After this move, the knights will be exchanged. Without them on the board, there is an objective draw on the board.
37...Nxf4 38.Kxf4 Qb4+ 39.Kf3 d4 40.Qe8+ Kh7 41.Qxf7 Qd2 42.Qf5+ Kh8 43.h4
CB: Carlsen tries to create a defensive net around the black king. The position is equal, but far from over. Anand needs to be active with Qxa2 or Qc3
43...Qxa2 44.Qe6
CB: ...Qa1 or ...Qd2 is holding for black
44...Qd2
CB: Carlsen wanted to push g5, all along this has been the plan. He can do it now with 45. g5 hxg5 46. hxg5 Qxg5 47. Qe8+ Kh7 48. Qe4 or later after 45. Qe8+ Kh7 46. Qe4+ Kh8 47. g5 hxg5 48. hxg5 Qxg5
45.Qe8+ Kh7 46.Qe4+ Kh8 47.Qe8+
CB: And a draw has been agreed. Anand is happy with the result, Carlsen has nothing to be sorry about, and the match is getting more and more exciting! Amazing discussion in a isolated queens pawn game arising from the Sicilian, showing that theory is not the only factor in this match. A lot of will power, battling and effort, as well as a wide range set of skills is required for becoming a World Champion. The show will continue after a rest day, thank you for following with us GM Bauer and WGM Videnova from Chessdom.com and see you soon for more commentary! (current standings and statistics)
47...Kh7 (½ : ½) - The perpetual check!

Peter Svidler really does talk a lot and his pretty female companion has to hold her own.
They get tweets and of course the names of tweeters try and get Svidler to read them out. eg Hugh Georgy. \" I`m nor reading that out....I got caught the first time and.....\"
I missed the first one but they were giggling for minutes.
Yesterdays stream went down for a while and Chessbombs screen was stuck on the opening board for a long time. It`s thought that millions of Indians are crashing the feeds after Anands win in the third game.

1.d4 (Again for the third time Anand played so!)
BC: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. Follow the round 5 game with me, GM Boris Chatalbashev from the Chessdom chess academy, as the action happens, and for more detailed material visit Chess Insider pdf magazine. Today Anand has white, a game that will be followed by two games with black as next rounds colors are reversed. So the Indian star will be looking for active play and possibility for a point in this very crucial moment of the match. Carlsen has the opposite task, to take the most with black today and attack the next days. As the excitement continues growing, you can still make your predictions here
1...Nf6
BC: It was sure 1.d4 is coming up, as Magnus has definitely shown weaknesses in his preparation here and for Anand there is no need to change. Also with 1.d4 he has chances for more complex positions than in Berlin or some other Ruy Lopez aka Spanish game.
2.c4
BC: Also in general, Anand should avoid long technical battles, Carlsen\'s technique is superior and the age becomes a factor. My prediction - after the last two games Vishy\'s chances are looking much better and if he manages to score another \"ace\", then who knows,a big surprise might be coming up...
2...e6 3.Nf3 b6 4.g3 Bb4+
BC: So Carlsen\'s choice is the Queens-Indian, it is a main opening in his repertoire over the years. The variation with 4...Bb4+ is not so predictable though, 4...Ba6 being the main move. It is solid and avoids some sharper variations in the main lines.
5.Bd2 Be7 6.Nc3 Bb7 7.Bg2 c6 8.e4
BC: Anand took his time a little bit,7...c6 might have been somewhat unexpected. But 8.e4 is definitely the principle move.
8...d5
BC: Still in well explored theory, see the opening lines of CHOPIN.
9.exd5
BC: The speed with which Anand played this move is a direct proof he is prepared and confident in the line. We have seen games of Karjakin, Tiviakov, among other top players opting for this opening.
9...cxd5 10.Ne5 O-O 11.O-O
BC: For me the most natural move here is 12.Bf4,developing the last piece and supporting the knight on e5. It seems White has the initiative and easier play, but it is not so simple, black always has the possibility with Na5 and dxc4 next.
11...Nc6 12.cxd5
BC: Interesting decision for Anand! After ...Nxe5, 13.d6 looks like the only move to play for an advantage.
12...Nxe5 13.d6
BC: This is a novelty at top level. We have seen a game continue 13. dxe5 Nxd5 14. Nxd5 Bxd5 15. Bc3 Bxg2 16. Qxd8 Rfxd8 17. Kxg2 Rd5 18. Rfd1 Rad8 19. Rxd5 Rxd5 20. f4 f5 21. Rc1 Kf7 22. Be1 (Komljenovic - Palac from Sibenik 2010)
13...Nc6
BC: Carlsen replies immediately, both players know what is going on in this position. Now White will have a pair of bishops, but with the weak pawn on d4 is not so easy to prove something.
14.dxe7 Qxe7 15.Bg5 h6
BC: There is high chance that we are heading for a forced line 16. d5 Rfd8 17. Bxf6 Qxf6 18. dxc6 Rxd1 19. Rfxd1 , but will the players deviate?
16.d5 Na5
BC: A key moment in the game. Does Magnus have something prepared to deviate from the principle variation and does Anand expect that? After 17.d6 the passed pawn does not look so dangerous but the game will calm down somewhat and black still has to show how he reaches full equality.
17.Bxf6
BC: 17.Bf6 is rather safe play, safer than d6, but is not a draw offer still. White has the tiniest of advantages with no risk to lose whatsoever, but can anyone beat Carlsen in that type of position?
17...Qxf6 18.dxe6
BC: 18...Qxe6 will follow, the computers might show also some other moves like fxe6 or Bxg2 here, but for a human it looks the best.
18...Qxe6
BC: Now the position is stable. It is rather symmetrical,not that far from equality, but still it is black who has to solve problems. White gains some tempos with 19.Re1, possibly Re7 in a certain moment, and also the knight on d5 will be strong.
19.Re1 Qf6
BC: this is the way to prevent at least for the moment Nd5 and Re7,as the pawn on b2 is not protected.
20.Nd5
BC: Still Anand went for Nd5. I have a feeling at first sight that a repetition is coming up - 19...Qxb2 20.Re2 Qa3 21.Re3 Qb2... It seems Anand could have posed more problems with 19.Bb7 Nb7 20.Qf3 Nc5 and only now 21.Rfe1. 19...Qxb2 has the alternative 20. ... Bxd5 21. Bxd5 Rad8 22. Qf3 Qxf3 23. Bxf3, both leading for white advantage.
20...Bxd5
BC: Black is in slight trouble, yet he chooses fast the move. 21. ... Rad8 22. Qf3 Qxf3 will force the exchange of the queens. This is the natural development of the position, ...Rac8 or any other move are worse.
21.Bxd5 Rad8
BC: Anand will play 22.Qf3, 22.Qh5 is not enough as after 22...Nc6 the knight is coming into play.
22.Qf3
BC: Carlsen will exchange the queens, 23...Qxb2 looks somewhat dangerous after 24.Rad1 followed by 25.Re7. Black is a pawn up only temporarily. Looking back at the game, we can all see how well was Anand prepared for the game. Many experts and commentators, including me, underestimated the 21.Nd5! idea, clearly a 2800+ move. Such open positions with Bishop vs Knight are definitely in White\'s favour. The knight on a5 will be searching for good squares, for the moment there is a little bit of domination. This championship is very different from the match in Chennai and the action will become more interesting with every move and every game.
22...Qxb2
BC: Risky stuff from Magnus! This means also that he really did not like the ending. The game becomes very interesting!
23.Rad1
BC: Now white is a pawn down, but he controls almost the whole board. It will not be easy to covert, but the ball is in Black\'s court - trying to find good moves in not an easy position. Carlsen played so fast the opening that almost gave the impression that he has analyzed everything in this variation and we are heading to a rather uneventful draw. It does not look so now!
23...Qf6 24.Qxf6 gxf6 25.Re7 Kg7
BC: Magnus will give back the a7 pawn, but the knight will come into play via c6. There are some weaknesses at black kingside also (f7,f6). 23...Kg7 is a good move.The problem for white is that after 26.Ra7 Nc6 27.Rb7 Nb4 28.Bb3 Rd1 29.Bd1 Na2, it is not possible to win the game only at one side. That is why he has to play Ra7 and 27.Ra4! In that ending generally black should be able to hold, but he has to suffer quite some time.
26.Rxa7 Nc6 27.Rb7 Nb4 28.Bb3 Rxd1+ 29.Bxd1 Nxa2 30.Rxb6
BC: Vishy\'s choice with Rb8 was not the best,now it is easier for Black. Probably he thought it is draw after 27.Ra4 anyway, but that was the way to keep chances for a full point.
30...Nc3 31.Bf3 f5 32.Kg2 Rd8 33.Rc6 Ne4 34.Bxe4 fxe4 (Those of you who follow our forum: \'\'Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)\'\' already they knew that this endgame is 100% a draw!) 35.Rc4 f5 36.g4 Rd2 37.gxf5 e3 38.Re4 Rxf2+ 39.Kg3 Rxf5 (1/2 : 1/2)
-------------------------------------------
Good luck! Georgi

Note:
--------

1.e4 (Again for the third time Carlsen played so!)
BC: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. Follow the round 6 game with me, GM Boris Chatalbashev from the Chessdom chess academy, as the action happens, and for more detailed material visit Chess Insider pdf magazine. The next two days Carlsen has white and he will be looking for points against a rock solid Anand. So,it is quite obvious the importance of the game today - Anand should try to keep things at least level at half-time. One of Carlsen\'s advantages over Vishy is his greater psychological stability. But if the match remains close until the end of it, he might become nervous too, as we saw in the finish of London Candidates when he was really shaky. So,no doubt, Magnus will try to apply maximum pressure now. Nothing is decided in this match, with the score equal, you can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...c5 (Again for the second time Anand played so!)
BC: A normal first move for Carlsen, in view of the current standings and statistics. A win with white is very heavy at this moment, but we also have to remember a win with black can be decisive for the match too. Anand\'s reply ...c5 gives us a Sicilian opening, something that we saw early in the match.
2.Nf3 e6
BC: The problem of Ruy Lopez as was Anand\'s choice the first game is that Carlsen likes these positions a lot and plays them tremendously well with both colors!
3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 a6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 Bb4
BC: Sicilian Kan is the current variation. Previously was a famous opening in blitz games, now the modern move is Qd3
7.Qd3 Nc6
BC: Svidler\'s choice versus his compatriot Nepomniachtchi was 7...Qc7 8. a3 Bxc3+ 9. Qxc3 Nxe4 10. Nb5 axb5 11. Qxg7 Rf8 12. Bh6 Qc5 13. f3 b4 14. fxe4 Nc6 15. Qxf8+ Qxf8 16. Bxf8 Kxf8 , as we mentioned in a blitz game (Nepomniachtchi, I 2730-Svidler, P 2753, FIDE World Blitz 2014, Dubai, UAE, 1-0)
8.Nxc6 dxc6 9.Qxd8+
BC: This variation is a specialty of GM Miezis. A game Shirov - Miezis continues a little different 9. e5 Nd7 10. f4 f5 11. Bd2 b5 12. O-O-O O-O 13. g4 Nc5 14. Qc2 Qe7 15. Be3 Bb7 16. gxf5 exf5 17. a3 Bxc3 18. Qxc3 Ne4 19. Qb3 Qe6 20. Kc2 c5 21. Be2 etc.
9...Kxd8 10.e5
BC: The question here, is this variant less ambitious than 7... d5 or just great preparation? CHOPIN has analysis of the variation
10...Nd7
BC: Generally black\'s choice means he will not try to play for something more than a draw. It is a rather rare variation, solid, but not ambitious. This move is probably not a novelty yet, rather a transposition of an old game. So far a compatriot of Anand - GM Negi - played ...Ne4 in this position.
11.Bf4
BC: Rather unknown position in theory and only after 11 moves! O.K., for Anand it is surely a thorough preparation and also the idea is to surprise Magnus, he could have not expected that! We have arrived at a transposition of a game of Mariya Muzychuk in 2006, but no GM has ever entered these lines.
11...Bxc3+
BC: 11...Bc3 is more or less expected, black has to spoil white\'s structure on the queenside.
12.bxc3 Kc7 13.h4
BC: In the endgame that arose, as a compensation for the structure white has space advantage, a pair of bishops. But it will not be easy for Carlsen to do something in a semi-closed position like that.13.h4 is a natural move, gaining space on the kingside and developing the rook via h3 in future.
13...b6 14.h5
BC: Apart from the normal development for black with Bb7,c5 or Nc5 he has to answer the question - is it good to allow h6 or play it himself.
14...h6
BC: Now,of course, the g7 pawn will be target for white till the end of the game. But the situation might change - Anand can find a good moment for g7-g5 break in future.
15.O-O-O Bb7 16.Rd3
BC: It will be a slow and long game with no risk for white, not exactly what I would have advised Vishy to do. On the other hand, he surely have studied the little nuances of that endgame and probably does not think there is some danger.
16...c5 17.Rg3
BC: Anand will play 17...Rag8, then probably Nf8 preparing g5.
17...Rag8 18.Bd3
BC: In some moment g5 might come even if it is a pawn loss, depending how many pieces black can exchange by doing that. White\'s pawns on the queenside are always some compensation, also as the battle is only at kingside,black must be able to defend. It is a good moment to check the 3000+ ELO Top Computer Chess Championship, going on parallel to the WCC here
18...Nf8 19.Be3
BC: 19.Be3 is a very strong move, because after 19...g5 20.hg Ng6 the bishop is not attacked and white has the possibility of continuing positionally 21.Rh5,leaving the h6 pawn weak and intending to take it in a better moment in future.
19...g6
BC: Anand has no useful moves, so he goes for g6, but somehow I begin to doubt he likes his position. His time on the clock is also an indication...
20.hxg6 Nxg6 21.Rh5
BC: Now or some moves later black will play Ne7, in many variations white can win the h6 pawn only exchanging all the rooks which means that draw is still the most probable result.
21...Bc6
BC: I like 21...Bc6, Anand can wait, asking the question if Carlsen has really a plan to improve.White stands very nice but it is not an easy question to answer.
22.Bc2 Kb7 23.Rg4
BC: Magnus keeps with the waiting strategy also, instead if 23.Bxh6 then 23...Ne7 24.Rhg5 Rg5 25.Bg5 Ng6 and the activity of black\'s rook on the h file and 1st rank later is enough compensation.
23...a5 24.Bd1
BC: Good maneuvering, the rook on d file can be useful in the future. 25.Bh6? Ne5 - the other idea.
24...Rd8 25.Bc2 Rdg8 26.Kd2
BC: A really strange blunder! Magnus lost the sense of danger,having dictated things on the board.Now after 26...Ne5 27.Rg8 Nc4 + it is him who must fight for draw.
26...a4
BC: And a counter-blunder! Anand missed his chance. The drama is full!
27.Ke2
BC: I still can not believe what they missed, now again a long maneuvering is expected...
27...a3
BC: Anand is sure that the a3 pawn is not that weak, if it is taken by the black squared bishop then he has Ra8. But if the rooks are exchanged in the future, then... A little bit risky.
28.f3 Rd8
BC: Now if 29.Bg6 fg 29.Rg6 Be8 30.Rg7 Rd7 31.Rd7 Bd7 white is a pawn up or even two,but it still looks drawish. The problem is if he takes on h6 with the bishop he is pinned and sooner or later the rooks will be exchanged. Then in the ending with opposite colored bishops draw should not be difficult.Also in that case arrives the idea with Ba4-b3,justifying the pawn on a3.
29.Ke1 Rd7
BC: Now, of course, taking twice on g6 is even worse because of Rd3 next.
30.Bc1
BC: Keeping an eye on a3 pawn, just in case.
30...Ra8
BC: A good move 30...Ra8. If 31.Bh6 then it goes back 31...Rh8! and the main line is 32.Bg6 fg 33.Rg6 Ba4! with either Bb3 next or Rd1-a1.
31.Ke2 Ba4 32.Be4+ Bc6 33.Bxg6
BC: Now Magnus found the good moment for 33.Bxg6, he outmaneuvered Vishy...The computers say that 32...Ka7 sacrificing an exchange was playable, but I doubt a human can understand this...
33...fxg6 34.Rxg6
BC: The counterplay will not be enough as white will find a suitable moment for taking on a3. It is not over yet,though, with opposite colored bishops white has to be careful of the drawish tendencies.
34...Ba4 35.Rxe6
BC: Precise , Carlsen rarely let\'s opponents get away in positions like this.
35...Rd1 36.Bxa3 Ra1 37.Ke3
BC: Now Anand has realised that trapping the bishop is not possible, so the position is objectively lost, and it is too late to do something...
37...Bc2
BC: Anand resigned and Carlsen takes the lead. Halfway through the match, Magnus has a point advantage. My opinion is that Anand must not go in positions like this with Carlsen.He should play complicated,dynamical chess! On the other hand if you do not use your chances like 26...Ne5! ,it is really depressing whatever you do. Tomorrow is a rest day, but will Anand manage to recover psychologically, we will see in the live broadcast on Monday. Thank you for following with me GM Chatalbashev, see you in later games for more commentary
38.Re7+ (1 : 0) The blacks resign!
If: 38...Ka6 39.Rxh6 Ka5 40.Rh8 Ra6 41.e6 Ba4 42.g4 Rxa2 43.Bc1 Ra1 44.Bd2 b5 45.g5 Rg1 46.cxb5 Kxb5 47.Rb7+ Kc6 48.Rg7 etc = (1:0) /
Or if: 41.... Rxa2 (instead of : 41...Ba4 , after: 41.e6) 42. Bc1 b5 43. Rh6 Bb3 44. cxb5 Kxb5 45. Rb7+ Kc4 46. e7 Ra8 47. Bd2 R2a3 48. f4 Ba4 49. f5 Be8 50. f6 Kd5 51. g4 etc = (1:0)
--------------------------------------------
Good luck! Georgi

Note:
--------
Finished the first half of the match : (2: 1) in favor of the World Champion!
-------------------------------------------
The provisional result for now is (after the sixth game from 12 games) is:

-----------------------------
It is very difficult to indicate the crucial error of Anand (the blacks) in the 6-th game from this match,the most likely it lies more in the debut!
It turned out that: 7 ... Nc6 ?! (in the 6-th game from this match) is not a enough solid move. It is recommended (by me to readers in our forum):
7...Bxc3+ (The best!) and if: 8.bxc3 Qa5 9.f3 Qe5 10.Ne2 d5 11.exd5 exd5 12.Bf4 dxc4 13.Qxc4 Qe6 14.Qxe6+ Bxe6 15.Nd4 Nbd7 16.Nxe6 fxe6 17.Rb1 e5 18.Bg5 O-O-O 19.Bd3 Nc5 20.Bf5+ Kc7 21.O-O b5 22.Be3 etc with mutual chances.

1.e4 ( Again for the fourth time Carlsen played so!)
GM: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. This is the second consecutive day for Carlsen to have the white pieces. In round 6 he scored a win to take the lead in the match and will be looking for another decisive blow today. Anand will be happy with a draw, while a win with black can swing the whole match. Anything can happen, this is the World Championship, of which you can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...e5
GM: According to the match statistics, 50% of games with white so far in the match are won for white, and 50% are drawn. And here we have the expected reaction by Anand: he switches back to 1... e5 instead of the Sicilian of round 6
2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 5.d4 Nd6
(With this debut Anand plays only for a draw!)
6.Bxc6 (The best!)
GM: The Berlin defense on the board, a solid opening with very drawish chances. However, one does not enter an opening at the highest chess competition without something in hand. Deep theoretical battle ahead.
6...dxc6 7.dxe5
GM: With 6. Bxc6 dxc6 and 7. dxe5 is known as the famous \"Berlin endgame\"
7...Nf5 8.Qxd8+ Kxd8 9.h3
GM: From this very well explored opening Carlsen will get a technical position, while Anand will be able to have good defensive chances.
9...Ke8 10.Nc3 h5 11.Bf4 Be7 12.Rad1 Be6 13.Ng5 Rh6
GM: See fragment of GM Avrukh\'s detailed insight in another popular continuation in this position.
14.g3
GM: The game GM Giri - GM Radjabov from the recent Tashkent FIDE GP 2014 continued 14...Bxg5 15. Bxg5 Rg6 16. h4 f6 17. exf6 gxf6 18. Bf4 Nxh4 19. f3 Rd8 20. Kf2 Rxd1 21. Nxd1 Nf5 22. Rh1 Bxa2 23. Rxh5 Be6 24. g4 Nd6 25. Rh7 f5 26. g5 Nf7 27. Rh5 Rg8 28. Kg3 Rh8 29. Rxh8+ Nxh8 30. Bxc7 and after interesting battle finished draw on move 52 (replay the game here)
14...Bxg5 15.Bxg5 Rg6 16.h4 f6 17.exf6
GM: With such a recent game as Giri - Radjabov in mind, it is no wonder moves are flying on the board today.
17...gxf6 18.Bf4 Nxh4 19.f3 Rd8 20.Kf2
GM: So far Anand was following one of his own games: Anand - Nakamura from Grand Slam Sao Paulo/ Bilbao 2011. Nakamura\'s famous comment on the game, \"Thanks to Kramnik I was able to just play something silly like the Berlin and draw against the World Champion relatively effortlessly\" .It continued 20. Rxd8+ Kxd8 21. Kf2 Nf5 22. Rh1 Ng7 23. Bd2 Bf5 24. Nd1 Bxc2 25. Ne3 Bd3 26. Ng2 Ne6 27. Rxh5 Rg7 28. Bc3 Ke7 29. Rh6 Rf7 30. g4 Bb1 31. a3 f5 32. g5 Nxg5 33. Nf4 Ke8 34. Rg6 Nh7 35. Rg8+ Rf8 36. Rg7 Rf7 1/2-1/2 , but now he deviated with 20. Kf2 following the mentioned recent game.
20...Rxd1 21.Nxd1 Nf5 22.Rh1 Bxa2 23.Rxh5 Be6 24.g4 Nd6
GM: As we are still in the known game, we use the opportunity to show you the recovered video moment of the round 6 dramatic moment. The video broadcast was interrupted for commercials, and here is what the audience did not see. Also, as we are waiting for a possible novelty, I want to invite you to play with me WGM Iva Videnova in the Master Challenge at ChessArena, everyone is invited
25.Rh7 Nf7
GM: Anand is prepared in this game, deviating first from the Tashkent game. The continuation 25... f5 could be a little risky, as Carlsen might have prepared 26.Rxc7N. Now Anand has a passive, but solid position
26.Ne3
GM: The alternative 26.Bxc7 leads to complete equality after ...f5! 27.gxf5 Bxf5 28.Ne3 Rg2! If White exchanges his more active rook for the opponent\'s one, the game will be level.
26...Kd8 27.Nf5
GM: Carlsen activates the knight, using the fact that Bxf5 is not possible in view of 28.gxf5 trapping Black\'s rook
27...c5 28.Ng3
GM: In the previous game Carlsen outmaneuvered Anand successfully, now he is trying the same strategy. His plan is to transfer the knight to h5, then playing Bf4-g3-h4, attacking the f6-target.
28...Ne5
GM: Anand took a lot of time on this move and we can expect Carlsen to do the same. A first look shows the \"f\" pawn becomes weaker after 29. Rh8+ Rg8 30. Bxe5 fxe5 31. Rh5 Rf8 32. Ke3 Bd5 33. Ne4 Bxe4 34. Kxe4 Rf4+ 35. Ke3 Rb4 36. Rxe5 Rxb2 37. Rxc5 b6 38. Rc3 . This is what the engines (see the graph on the left) do not like. The main compensation Anand receives is possible counterplay with the queenside pawns. The rook endgame is better for White after the aforementioned variation although in this variation Anand should believe he can handle it. The connected passers on \"g\" and \"f\" are very strong though, and the position looks worrying.
29.Rh8+
GM: Carlsen is precise and avoids the other possibilities like 29. Bxe5 etc, that we will analyze in ChessInsider. The Norwegian goes for the critical line mentioned. Now the best continuation for Anand is ...Bg8. 29...Kd7 is a blunder in view of 30. Ne4!, followed by 31.Bxe5 fxe5 31.Rh5
29...Rg8 30.Bxe5 fxe5 31.Rh5 Bxg4 32.fxg4 Rxg4 33.Rxe5
GM: Very interesting decision! Anand is trying to exchange one of the pawns and build a fortress against White\'s pieces instead of entering the aforementioned rook endgame.
33...b6 34.Ne4 Rh4 35.Ke2 Rh6 36.b3 Kd7 37.Kd2 Kc6 38.Nc3
GM: The plan for Vishy is to exchange as many pawns as possible, ideally all of them. A Rook + Knight vs Rook is draw by definition. There will be a lot of tactical maneuvering, a good way to start for black is have an advanced \"a\" pawn, so 38... a5 is on the list, or even better 38... a6 to protect the b5 square from the knight.
38...a6 39.Re4
GM: It\'s interesting to notice that all engine analysis show that White is winning, however, it\'s not that simple at all in order to make a progress, Carlsen should move his pawns, but Anand is threatening to exchange them
39...Rh2+ 40.Kc1
GM: The speed with which Anand played so far is indicative that he is very aware of the character of the current setup. A not so pleasing to the eye position, might as well be prepared by Vishy in advance. It is very hard for Carlsen to penetrate in Anand\'s fortress, although he will surely try everything to do it.
40...Rh1+ 41.Kb2 Rh6 42.Nd1 Rg6 43.Ne3 Rh6 44.Re7
GM: Vishy is on the right track. 44...Rh2 prevents 45.c2-c4, followed by 46.Nd5
44...Rh2 45.Re6+ Kb7 46.Kc3
GM: with the idea 47.Nd5, eventually supported by 48.c2-c4
46...Rh4 47.Kb2 Rh2 48.Nd5 Rd2 49.Nf6 Rf2 50.Kc3 Rf4 51.Ne4 Rh4 52.Nf2 Rh2 53.Rf6 Rh7 54.Nd3
GM: There is no practical change in the setup. Anand\'s pieces are at optimal positions, Carlsen, with more time on the clock, tried to check if Vishy is on the right track. The game will continue in a \"waiting\" mode until Carlsen is forced to do so by the 50 move rule. In the mean time, he will be planning his active play, adding fatigue as a variable in the game
54...Rh3 55.Kd2 Rh2+ 56.Rf2 Rh4 57.c4 Rh3 58.Kc2 Rh7 59.Nb2 Rh5 60.Re2
GM: We arrive at the second time control. At this point Carlsen will have more than enough time - 1 hour and 28 minutes, while Anand will be with 38 minutes. No time trouble for Vishy, but Carlsen will certainly use this factor too. With the pawn on c4 Carlsen will soon try his concrete ideas, with Nd5 and Re7, while black will have at hand b5, c6, Kb6 and many rook maneuvers.
60...Rg5 61.Nd1 b5
GM: Carlsen is heading for Nc3-d5. The move ...b5 is key moment. Anand is changing his pawn structure.
62.Nc3 c6 63.Ne4 Rh5 64.Nf6
GM: Surprisingly or not, Carlsen started putting practical problems for black, playing fast against Vishy\'s clock. Action is coming ahead.
64...Rg5
GM: Anand answered immediatelly, showing he is still comfortable in the position
65.Re7+ Kb6 66.Nd7+ Ka5 67.Re4 Rg2+ 68.Kc1 Rg1+ 69.Kd2 Rg2+ 70.Ke1
GM: And here is a chance for Vishy to reach Rook + Knight vs Rook: 70. ... bxc4 71. Rxc4 Kb5 72. Rxc5+ Kb4 73. Rxc6 Kxb3 74. Rxa6 exchanging all the pawns
70...bxc4 71.Rxc4 Rg3 72.Nxc5 Kb5 73.Rc2 a5 74.Kf2 Rh3 75.Rc1 Kb4 76.Ke2 Rc3 77.Nd3+ Kxb3 78.Ra1 Kc4 79.Nf2 Kb5 80.Rb1+ Kc4 81.Ne4 Ra3
82.Nd2+ Kd5 83.Rh1 a4 84.Rh5+ Kd4 85.Rh4+ Kc5 86.Kd1 Kb5 87.Kc2 Rg3 88.Ne4 Rg2+ 89.Kd3 a3 90.Nc3+ Kb6 91.Ra4 a2 92.Nxa2 Rg3+ 93.Kc2 Rg2+
94.Kb3 Rg3+ 95.Nc3 Rh3 96.Rb4+ Kc7 97.Rg4 Rh7 98.Kc4 Rf7 99.Rg5 Kb6 100.Na4+ Kc7 101.Kc5 Kd7 102.Kb6 Rf1 103.Nc5+ Ke7 104.Kxc6 etc = (1/2 : 1/2)

I use a split screen. 1/2 chessbomb and 1/2 chess24
I can see all the chat coming in on chessbomb and have the live screen with comentary on chess 24.
Todays game was below standard I think. Anand with the white pieces tried a pathetic attack which Carlsen could have defended in his sleep. Once the attack was routinely thwarted the game ended with Anand trying to look interested as more and more pieces came off with the inevitable draw. he`ll have to try a more difficult opening in his remaining white game and hope Carlsen doesn`t destroy him with white.
That said I think Anand has played well so far and todays game just wasn`t asking enough questions.

1.d4 ( Again for the fourth time Anand played so!)
GM: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. After two games with black, Anand is on the white side of the board again. Yesterday he showed very nice understanding of the Berlin endgame, and it is interesting to see how he will do with white attacking the current World Champion. Carlsen has a point advantage (current standings and statistics) and a victory with black can secure him the title again, but anything could happen in this World Championship, of which you can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.Nc3
GM: Here we are in the same opening as game 3 (replay here)
4...Be7 5.Bf4 O-O 6 e3
GM: As we already know, this is a very sharp setup and white uses it for increasing the options for a decisive score
6...c5
IV: It is Carlsen who changes the variation, instead of going into the theoretical battle of game 3, opting for ...c5 instead of ...Nbd7. This is also sharp after 7. dxc5 Bxc5
7.dxc5
GM: The variation on the board suits Carlsen too. He is always looking for different openings to avoid the long theoretical battles and enter faster in unknown territory
7...Bxc5 8.a3 Nc6 9.Qc2 Re8
GM: This is the first big surprise on the board, brought by Carlsen. Anand is taking his time as this is a very rare move . the most common move for white was 9...Qa5. But after 9...Qa5 we have clear examples of recent games with 1-0 score like Jakovenko - Onischuk from Poikovsky 2012 where the game continued Qa5 10. Rd1 Be7 11. Be2 dxc4 12. Bxc4 Nh5 13. O-O Nxf4 14. exf4 g6 15. g3 a6 16. Ne4 b5 17. Be2 Qb6 18. Qc3 f6 19. b4 a5 20. Rc1 Ra6 21. Nc5 axb4 22. axb4 Ra7 and a white victory in 32 moves. After ...Re8 Long castle 10. O-O-O or direct 10. Rd1 are the theoretical moves keeping the game sharp, but white has many other options at hand too. Here are the opening variations at the CHOPIN explorer
10.Bg5
GM: Interesting note about ...Re8: the move is rare, but it has been around for more than 100 years! The move has been Janowski and Marshall\'s choice in the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. They continued 10. Bg5 d4 11. O-O-O e5 12. Nd5 Be6 13. e4 Rc8 14. Kb1 Be7 15. Nxe7+ Qxe7 16. Qa4 h6 17. Bxf6 Qxf6 18. h3, etc., (Showalter, Jackson-Janowski, Dawid/ New York, USA 1898, a total of 32 moves score 0-1) with the game being so old, we expect improvements and novelties soon.
10...Be7
GM: A novelty! At least in standard classical chess. The move is seen in a correspondence game in 2010, as well as rapid games between engines at TCEC, but that is certainly not relative anymore to today\'s battle. If white wants to achieve a good advantage from the opening and keep the game sharp Rd1 and O-O-O are the moves.
11.Rd1 Qa5 12.Bd3
GM: We are now in totally new territory. The light-squared bishop is better placed on d3, than on e2, because of taking control over the e4-square. The Nf6-e4 jump is one of the main approaches for Black in this setup, but in this case the players enter in a critical line 12. ... h6 13. Bh4 and there will be one of the important moments for black.
12...h6 13.Bh4 dxc4 14.Bxc4 a6
GM: The speed with which Carlsen plays indicates he is still in home preparation. Black wants to develop his own light-squared bishop on b7, starting with b7-b5. It looks like every move for black is trying to defy the engines and graph on the left, but so seemed Vishy\'s play in the opening yesterday. A quick assessment of the current position is that the game will again be played for only two possible results: win for white or draw.
15.O-O
GM: After ...b5 the bishop will be en-route the b1 square after 16.Ba2 followed by 17. Bb1. After 16.Ba2 Bb7 White has the interesting possibility of 17.Bxf6 when 17...Bxf6 18.Ne4 Be7 will be met by Rd7
15...b5 16.Ba2 Bb7
GM: Тhe \"more natural\" 17.Bb1 doesn\'t bring anything, since White\'s attack is stopped after ...Rad8 18. Bf6 Bf6 19. Qh7 Kf8
17.Bb1 Rad8
GM: The a2-h7 diagonal battery\'s bark is worse than its bite. It is critical moment since Anand\'s pieces are placed optimally, now it\'s time for him to find a proper attacking plan.
18.Bxf6 Bxf6
GM: 19. Ne4 Be7 is coming with 20. Nc5 or Rc1 to follow
19.Ne4 Be7 20.Nc5 Bxc5 21.Qxc5
GM: Carlsen can either exchange the rooks immediately 21...Rxd1 22.Rxd1 Rd8 or take the d-file with 21...Qa4, when White will be forced to take on d8.
21...b4
GM: smart decision by Magnus. The queen on c5 is pretty active, so it is a very good idea to be exchanged. With every exchange he is closer to a draw.
22.Rc1
GM: White seizes the c-file, but Black is active along the d-file. The position is equal
22...bxa3 23.bxa3 Qxc5 24.Rxc5 Ne7 25.Rfc1 Rc8 26.Bd3 Red8
GM: Carlsen is exchanging every piece on the board and why wouldn\'t be? He is still leading, and next game he\'ll be playing White.
27.Rxc8 Rxc8 28.Rxc8+ Nxc8
GM: This game is going towards a draw. With four games left, one must wonder when will the Tiger of Madras jump. He is a point behind and will certainly attempt something new and intriguing in the coming games. Next two rounds will be commented by my colleague and Vishy\'s compatriot, Indian WGM Soumya Swaminathan. See her preview of the match and a commented game here.
29.Nd2 Nb6 30.Nb3 Nd7 31.Na5 Bc8 32.Kf1 Kf8 33.Ke1 Ke7 34.Kd2
GM: The position is symmetrical and equal, but that does not mean there are no traps and dangers, although not realistically at their level. Seeing yesterday\'s game go until move 122, one wonder whether the players will again avoid offering draw and play it out to the end. Maybe today they are aware that the record for longest World Championship game is 124 moves:)
34...Kd6 35.Kc3 Ne5 36.Be2 Kc5 37.f4 Nc6 38.Nxc6 Kxc6 39.Kd4
GM: Vishy is going for e4-e5 after 39. Kd4 a5 40. Bh5 f6 41. e4 Bb7 42. g3 Kd7 43. Be2 Ke7 44. e5 But even so, there are no practical chances for a win, the question is when they will shake hands.
39...f6 40.e4 Kd6
GM: And a draw is agreed! The excitement will continue in the following rounds, today\'s game was an interesting upgrade of theory dating back to the 1800s. What more will this match offer us? With four games left anything is possible. Thank you for following with us and see you in later rounds for more commentary from the World Chess Championship!
41.e5+ (1/2 : 1/2)

FIDE World Chess Championship (2014) match Carlsen - Anand
------------------------------------------
Magnus Carlsen(1/2 : 1/2)Viswanathan Anand
Game (9) - (20/11/2014) http://live.fide.com/sochi/replay.php?round=37&name=7
------------------------------------------
This is a grandmaster draw! = The calm before the storm!
-------------------------------------------
1.e4 (Again for the fifth time Carlsen played so!)
S: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. I am WGM Soumya Swaminathan (see my facebook page here) and I will be commenting this exciting round 9 game. Carlsen is still a point ahead in the current standings and statistics) and he has the white pieces today. In game 9 in Chennai he won, however, all experts agree that this is a very different match. You can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4
S: The Berlin again! This is a surprise already. I was seriously expecting the Sicilian today.
5.d4 Nd6 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.dxe5
S: Still following the longest game of the match so far, game 7 (replay here)
7...Nf5 8.Qxd8+ Kxd8 9.h3 Ke8 10.Nc3 h5
S: Let\'s compare today\'s variation to the main theoretical line...
11.Ne2
S: Carlsen is not in the mood to repeat the variation from game 7. He is the first to deviate, the previous game saw 11.Bf4
11...b6
S: Actually here 11..Be7 is a more popular option for black and that is the reason Carlsen is already thinking. 11..Be7 followed by Nh4 is the main idea, exchanging a couple of pieces, easing out the tension a bit
12.Rd1
S: 12. Rd1 followed by Nfd4. In Berlin opening usually if white gets f4, f5 he can be very happy with his position. We are still in theory, albeit rare theory. 12...Ba6 was seen in Karjakin - Ponomariov or 12...Bb7 the choice of Jakovenko and Hracek
12...Ba6
S: The players are still following the recent game Volokitin - Schachinger , played in the European Individual championship earlier this year. It continued 13. Ned4 Nxd4 14. Nxd4 c5 15. Nf5 Be2 16. Rd2 Bc4 17. Ne3 Be6 18. b3 Rd8 19. Rxd8+ Kxd8 20. c4 c6 21. g4 hxg4 22. hxg4 Be7 23. f4 Rh4 24. f5 Bc8 25. Kg2 Bg5 26. Kg3 Rh1 27. Kg2 Rh4 and a draw in 34 moves. However, I suspect Carlsen will go for 13. Nf4 here improving on the given game, for example 13. Nf4 Rd8 14. Rd8 Kd8 15. e6
13.Nf4
S: Dominguez - Ponomariov continued with 13... Rd8 14. Bd2 Nd4 15. Nxd4 Rxd4 16. a4 Bc8 17. a5 a6 18. Be3 Rxd1+ 19. Rxd1 b5 20. Nd3 for a 1-0 in 66 moves in Leon 2012. Besides ...Rd8 mentioned, ...Be7 is possible with the idea of g5 , g4 here. The point is for 13.Nf4 Be7 14. e6, Black has the resource Bd6 !
13...Bb7
S: Vishy is the first to drop a novelty on the board! Judging by the speed he made it, this is well prepared. For those of you who are wondering why didn\'t Vishy go for Bb7 directly, instead of Ba6 first and then Bb7 , here is the difference : direct Bb7 gives white the option of Nd4-Nd4-Nd4 and now black doesn\'t have the resource of pushing away the knight with c5 (which he had in the Ba6 line ) because of Nb5 , with clear advantage. In this particular position, having the bishop on b7 is much more comfortable as now black can respond to a4 with a5, hence the point of the move order. Quite neat! One decent plan for white here is to go b3 - Bb2 and push e6. He could include a4-a5 before going for this plan.
14.e6
S: Carlsen goes for the more direct approach with e6, without the preparation mentioned.
14...Bd6
S: Immediate response by Anand. Surely Vishy and his team must have analyzed this most obvious move at home, so his quick response is not surprising. White has some decent options to chose from here like exf / Ng5 / Re1, all three look fine.
15.exf7+ Kxf7 16.Ng5+ Kf6 17.Ne4+ Kf7 18.Ng5+ Kf6 19.Ne4+ Kf7
S: Total contrast to game 7! Due to the decent preparation by Anand, Carlsen is happy with a draw. Two whites for Anand remain, one white for Carlsen, the remaining rounds will be very interesting! Thank you for watching with me WGM Soumya Swaminathan and see you in next round for more commentary from the World Chess Championship!
20.Ng5+ (1/2 : 1/2)
This was a Grandmaster draw! = The calm before the storm!
------------------------------------------
Good luck! Georgi

The provisional result for now is (after the ninth game from 12 games) is:
Viswanathan Anand( 4,0 : 5,0 )Magnus Carlsen

or:
---

Viswanathan Anand(+1 =6 -2)Magnus Carlsen

Today (12:00 pm. GMT) will start the tenth game and now Anand will have the whites pieces!
If after 12 games nobody has done 6.5 points - there will be a tiebreak!

1.d4 ( Again for the fifth time Anand played so!)
S: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. I am WGM Soumya Swaminathan (see my facebook page here) and I will be commenting round 10 for you. After the short draw yesterday Carlsen is still a point ahead in the current standings and statistics). Anand has two whites left and one is today, so a very important game for him and for the match. Nothing is decided yet, you can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...Nf6
S: Surely today\'s game will be much more crucial in terms of taking chances, than yesterday . I am guessing Vishy will go for the Catalan today if Magnus sticks to QGD.
2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Qb3
S: Russian System! Really good choice if u want to try for win as white against the Grunfeld. Very different situation from the round 1 Grunfeld (replay with GM Bauer comments here)
5...dxc4 6.Qxc4 O-O 7.e4
S: 7...Na6 and 7..a6 are the two main replies to the Russian system for Black. A lot of theory has been developed already and its no wonder that the players are blitzing out the moves
7...Na6 8.Be2 c5 9.d5 e6 10.O-O
S: The ...Na6 system that is currently on the board in reply to the Russian system was mainly popularized by one of the best chess players of all time Garry Kasparov, who had extensive cooperation with Magnus Carlsen
10...exd5
S: It is interesting to notice that Carlsen has only two games in Gruenfeld against the Russian System: a victory against Dourerassou in 2003 and a loss against the current ECU President Azmaiparashvili in 2005. The game against Azmaiparashvili was a bit different starting with 8. Bg5 c5 9. d5 e6 10. O-O-O Qa5 11. Qb5 Qxb5 12. Bxb5 Nc7 13. Be2 exd5 14. exd5 Rd8 15. d6 Nce8 16. Bb5 Bd7 17. Rhe1 a6 18. Bc4 Bf5 19. Nd5 Nxd5 20. Bxd8 Rxd8 21. Rxd5 Bh6+ 22. Kd1 Nxd6 23. Ne5 Be6 24. Rd3 Bf5 25. Nxf7 Bxd3 26. Nxh6+ Kg7 and ending in a 53 moves win for white.
11exd5
S: Anand vs Garry Kasparov, 1999, Rapid game is a good game to refer to at this point, where black continue 11...Bf5. The game was 11... Bf5 12. Rd1 Qb6 13. d6 Rad8 14. Na4 Qc6 15. Be3 Ne4 16. Qb5 Bd7 17. Qxc6 Bxc6 18. Bxa6 Bxa4 19. Bxb7 Bxd1 20. Bxe4 Bxf3 21. Bxf3 Bxb2 22. Rd1 Bd4 23. Bxd4 cxd4 24. Rxd4 Rd7 25. h4 Rfd8 26. Ra4 Rb8 0-1 (Anand-Kasparov, 1999). Of course since that point theory has developed a lot and we will see differences.
11...Re8
S: instead, Magnus opts for 11..Re8. The most popular reply here would be Rd1
12.Bg5
S: Besides Rd1 mentioned, another very popular option was to go 12. Bf4 followed by Rad1. But Anand opts for 12. Bg5 which was also chosen by his second Wojtazcek in his game against Ponomariov in 2012 ! The game was played in September 2012, just a couple of months after Anand\'s Match against Gelfand, where his opponent exclusvely played the Grunfeld
12...h6 13.Be3
S: The game Wojtaszek 2713-Ponomariov 2729/ Poikovsky 2012 continued 13... Bf5 14. Rad1 Qb6 15. b3 Rad8 16. Rd2 Ng4 17. Bf4 Qa5 18. Rc1 g5 19. Bg3 Bxc3 20. Qxc3 Qxc3 21. Rxc3 Nf6 22. Bb5 Ne4 23. Re3 Nxd2 etc
13...Bf5
S: There is extensive theory at CHOPIN opening explorer at this point. White could have reached this exact position with the black pawn on h7 instead of h6, after 12. Be3 Bf5 13. Rad1
14.Rad1
S: There are a lot of subtleties of forcing black to play h6 with Bg5 first, but one difference can be that many times white\'s queen goes to c1 in order to protect b2, and with this pawn structure, it also attacks h6. For example now after 14...Ne4, 15.Ne4 Re4 16. Qc1 is a very likely continuation
14...Ne4
S: The predicted move is on the board, and it is a novelty. Wojtaszek - Ponomariov which was the only top game in this line until now continued 14...Qb6
15.Nxe4
S: Is Carlsen considering 15...Be4 instead of 15...Re4 here ? Honestly, 15..Be4 doesn\'t look very appealing as white can simply push d6 now. That\'s why black preferred to go 14... Qb6 , with the idea of Rad8 - playing against the strong \"d\" pawn
15...Bxe4
S: But Carlsen goes for it?! This is a surprise. 16. d6 Bc6 17. Qc1 Qd7 18. Rfe1 looks strong. Even Vishy himself probably did not hope for such nice game out of the opening, and this is why he is taking his time on this move.
16.Qc1
S: Same plan, with reversed move order 16. Qc1 Qf6 17. d6. The difference is that perhaps Vishy did not like the reply 16. d6 Bc6 17. Qc1 Re6. While waiting for Carlsen, check out the ongoing Top Computer Chess Championship with the same engines that you see on the left of your screen here.
16...Qf6
S: Here after 16...Qf6, black already gets Rad8 on the next move. However the game progresses from here, we can safely say that 16. d6 was the critical move for Be4. Whether black could have still equalized or not is another matter.
17.Bxh6 Qxb2
S: Now white can go for this position after 18. Qb2 Bb2 19. d6 Nb4 20. d7 Red8 21. Bg5 f6 22. Bc4 Kh8 23. Be3, but as far as the evaluation for this line goes it is highly unclear. This is a typical Grunfeld characteristic - white gets a very strong passed pawn early into the middlegame - the d pawn - and in return black has very good piece activity, the g7 bishop being the pride of his position.
18.Qxb2
S: So in the line we saw just now, 18. Qb2 Bb2 19. d6 Nb4, it would be a better idea to go 20. Bc4 first, preventing this possibility of f6, threatening d7, Bg5. Though black will still have the option of giving exchange sac in return of d pawn. Black himself has the very powerful idea of advancing his queenside pawns so he can afford to do this.
18...Bxb2 19.Ng5
S: There is one very pretty idea for white here if black co-operates :) 19. Ng5 Nb4 20. Bb5 Bd5 21. Be8 Re8 22. a3 !! Ba3 ( forced or else u lose the d5 bishop ) 23. Re1 Re1 24. Re1 and suddenly black\'s king is caught in a mating web which is not so easy to escape from ! This is a fun line, but 19..Bd4 is more likely to be seen on the board.
19...Bd4
S: As expected, now 19..Bd4 20. Ne4 Re4 . Strong centralized bishop and for now the d pawn doesn\'t look so dangerous. On the other hand, white has pair of bishops & the open e file, so white will still have the upper hand. Another idea of Bd4 is if white goes 20. Bc4 ?! then black has 20...Nb4 21. d6 Bd5 ! & now the d pawn goes from being white\'s strength to a weakness !
20.Nxe4 Rxe4
S: 20. Bb5 was an option and I guess Vishy stopped to consider it for a bit, but decided black has enough play after the exchange sac : 20..Bd5 21. Be8 Re8 - pair of bishops on d4 and d5, what more do you want ?!
21.Bf3 Re7 22.d6
S: Finally! This was the position Carlsen had to evaluate while going for Bd4, as it is more or less forced , and here black has the very fine knight manouvre Nb4 - Nc6.
22...Rd7 23.Bf4 Nb4 24.Rd2
S: a3 was better. This way white would have controlled the e file after Nc6 Rfe1. Perhaps White was not happy to go for this position after 24.a3 Nc2 25. Rd3 Bg7 with the idea of Nd4. After 24. a3 Nc2 25. Rd3 Bg7 line : Here 26. Rd5 is not that good as black still goes 26..Nd4 ! 27. Rc5 Ne6 28. Rc7 Nc7 29. dc Rc8 = as after 30. Rc1 Bb2 ! 31. Rc2 g5 followed by f5 and white will lose the c pawn anyway.
24...Re8 25.Rc1 Re6 26.h4
S: Good move. Here 26. a3 ? would have allowed the unexpected 24...Bb2 ! 25. Rb2 Nd3
26...Be5 27.Bxe5 Rxe5 28.Bxb7
S: Black managed to neutralize white\'s pressure after some precise play, so Vishy decided to go for this equal rook endgame. If white would have waited with something like 28. g3 black would have also waited with Kg7 etc. Sooner or later black would have played Nc6 - threatening Nd4 - and after Bc6 bc Re6, it is still a draw.
28...Rxb7 29.d7 Nc6 30.d8=Q+ Nxd8 31.Rxd8+ Kg7
S: And a draw is agreed, Carlsen stays in the lead. See the current standings and statistics. Vishy stays within striking distance. Let me remind you today starts the match Nakamura - Aronian and there is a Master Challenge with WGM Videnova, free and open for all (here). See you in later rounds for more commentary for the World Chess Championship!
32.Rd2 (1/2 : 1/2)

My a little analysis:
---------------------------
If: 32...Rb4 33.g3 Ra4 34.Rc3 Kf6 35.f4 Re1+ 36.Kf2 Ra1 37.Rxc5 R1xa2 38.Rxa2 Rxa2+ 39.Kf3 Ra3+ 40.Kg4 Ke6 41.Rc6+ Kd7 42.Rf6 Ke7 43.Rc6 Kd7
etc (1/2 : 1/2) There are stilling only 2 games to end the regular time of the match, as Real Madrid - Chelsea (the football match - the final of the Champions League)! Real Madrid continues to lead with 2: 1 and now Mourinho will must to change, he will must to risk to equalize -he will must to release new strikers and he will must to implement a new tactic!
------------------------------------------
Good luck! Georgi

The provisional result for now is (after the tenth game from 12 games) is:
Viswanathan Anand( 4,5 : 5,5 )Magnus Carlsen
or:
---
Viswanathan Anand(+1 =7 -2)Magnus Carlsen

Today will be a day\'\'s timeout. Tomorrow (12:00 pm. GMT) will start the eleventh game and now Carlsen will have the whites pieces!
If after 12 games nobody has done 6.5 points - there will be a tiebreak!

Carlsen spent 20-30 mins on move 15...Bxe4. Rxe4 was the move....but at this critical stage Carlsen decided to not take with the rook. It`s thought he did it because Anands team had prepared for Rxe4 and plans so Carlsen decided to spoil his party.-

1.e4 ( Again for the sixth time Carlsen played so!)
S: Hello dear chess friends and welcome to the Carlsen - Anand World Chess Championship match live games. I am WGM Soumya Swaminathan (see my facebook page here) and I will be commenting round 11 for you. With just 2 games to go and the pressure adding up, it can be anybody\'s day today . I am getting tensed as a spectator , and one can just wonder what the players are going through ! Whatever the result be, we are looking forward to some really topclass chess today! With a victory for white today Carlsen will retain the World Champion title according to the current standings (graph). Any other score would give Vishy a chance in the final game. The odds have not changed in the past games, and you can still win prizes by making your predictions here.
1...e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4
S: Again we are in the Berlin defense. Who would have thought this opening would become so popular before Kramnik\'s famous Match victory against Kasparov in World Chess Championship, 2000 ! CHOPIN openings 33% off annual subscriptions
5.d4
S: Game 9 (replay the moves here with my commentary) was rather short, but as the match is close to the end, we can expect Anand to deviate soon
5...Nd6 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.dxe5 Nf5 8.Qxd8+ Kxd8 9.h3 Bd7
S: And here it is, Anand deviates from his preference in the earlier two games of Berlin in this Match and goes for 9...Bd7, instead of 9..Ke8
10.Nc3 h6 11.b3 Kc8
S: In Berlin defense, Black basically has two plans as far as his king is concerned , either keep the king in the center - on e8 - or go to the queenside quickly - on b7 . This plan of taking king to b7 is more popular and you will find many games here.
12.Bb2 c5
S: c5 in this particular position is rare already, and this is why Carlsen is taking his time. It can of course transpose back to something known further down the line.
13.Rad1 b6
S: A more popular move order to go for this c5 idea would be 12...b6 13. Rad1 Ne7 14. Rd2 ( idea Rfd1 ) c5. This way black doesn\'t give white the option of going Nd5. Now the line continues, 15. Rfd1 Be6 16. Ne2, with the idea of Nf4-Ne6, & here black is on time with either 16..Ng6 or 16..g5.
14.Rfe1
S: I remember being very impressed by white\'s play after 16..g5 in the game Grischuk - Eljanov 2009 that went with 15. Rfd1 Be6 16. Ne2 g5 17. Rd8+ Kb7 18. Rxa8 Kxa8 19. h4 g4 20. Nh2 h5 21. Rd8+ Kb7 22. Nf4 Ng6 23. Nxe6 fxe6 24. g3 Bh6 25. Rxh8 Nxh8 26. f3 gxf3 27. Kf2 Ng6 and finished 1-0 in 53 moves. The situation here after Rfe1, there are a few recent games played with this b6, c5 idea. Black\'s main plan after 14. Nd5 is to go 14.. a5 followed by a4 . & if white answers with 15.a4 then black can already play 15..c4 ! and get rid of his doubled pawns and correct his pawn structure. 14.Rfe1 is useful move, non commital. Now since the knight is still on c3, black doesnt have the c4 resource after 14...a5 15. a4. So he has to find another plan.
14...Be6
S: this is a novelty ! You have to admit, Anand never fails to impress with his opening preparation..Curiously enough, 14..Ne7 , which was the previous move here would have gotten converted to Anand\'s own game against Nakamura in London Classic 2010, where he played this position from white !
15.Nd5 g5 16.c4 Kb7
S: White\'s position looks quite good at first glance because of the strong knight on d5 and the centrally placed rook, but white needs to put in some thought as to how to make further progress. One idea could be to go Nd2- Ne4 and put one of your knights on f6. Black seems to be doing fine too as right now he has this idea of Ne7, and assuming white doesn\'t exchange, he can go Ng6 or Nc6, followed by Bg7 etc.
17.Kh2
S: Is he just waiting or does Magnus want to go g4 ? Yes g4 is definitely a move to be considered in the Berlin, but it is also risky as black can then try to open the kingside with h5. So 18.g4 Ne7 19. Nf6 - preventing h5, could be a possible plan.
17...a5 18.a4 Ne7 19.g4
S: So Magnus does go for g4 ! Well, here after 19..h5, we can see the usefulness of Kh2 as now white goes Kg3, supporting g4 and then the black pawn on g5 becomes quite weak.
19...Ng6
S: An interesting plan for white here could be to go Kg3 and h4
20.Kg3 Be7
S: Anand needs to complete his development fast and bring his rooks into the game in order to play against white\'s threat of advancing his kingside pawns.
21.Nd2
S: A reminder that the Top Computer Chess Championship, with the 3000+ engines analysis that you can see on the left, continues live here with Stockfish vs Houdini
21...Rhd8
S: I thought black could go 22..h5 here, but then white takes 23. Ne7 Ne7 followed by 24. Ne4 - xg5. White can support g4 pawn with f3, while black will find it difficult to hold on to his g pawn after white\'s Bc1. So black instead opts for passive defense.
22.Ne4 Bf8 23.Nef6
S: Now since the knight is no more on e4 , black can actually play c6 , and put his own knight on f4. White surely noticed this, but it was difficult to find an alternate plan.
23...b5
S: Black could have gone 23..c6 24. Ne3 b5 as well but he decides to go for direct b5 ! Very interesting! So lets consider what happens if white takes the pawn: 23..b5 24. cb?! c6 ! 25. bc Kc6 & now white loses the b3 pawn after he moves his knight. White definitely does not want to go into that position where black has solved the problem of doubled pawns and all his pieces are very active. So maybe white can take 24.axb!? But this allows 24..a4 !! 25.ba Ra4 and the c4 pawn becomes very weak giving black very good compensation. With this pawn structure , he can also go N4-Nf4-gf and pick up the c4 and b5 pawns with his bishop. Conclusion: 23..b5 looks like a very strong move by Anand
24.Bc3 bxa4 25.bxa4 Kc6
S: the action is now going to shift from the \'d\' file to the \'b\' file. I don\'t think white managed to solve much of his problems with the move 24. Bc3, as after 24..ba 25. ba black managed to weaken white\'s pawn structure anyway. Black still has this idea of going Nf4-Nf4-gf- Bc4, besides other additional plans.
26.Kf3
S: So white stops black\'s idea. Nf4 now would be a mistake as after 27. Nf4 gxf , it\'s not check anymore and white can simply go Nd5 first and then take the pawn. Anand has an interesting possibility here, to go for this position after : 26..Rab8 27. Ba5 Ra8 28. Bc7 Bd5 29. Nd5 Rd5 30. cd Kc7, with 2 pieces for rook and 2 pawns , out which white\'s a pawn will be lost but the central pawns look menacing.
26...Rdb8
S: I think this is also fine, it was a matter of choice and I am sure Vishy must have given some thought to the line after Rab8, but preferred this one. Now Ke4! , both players are playing very entertaining chess today , I must say !
27.Ke4
S: this move was possible even after 26..Rab8 and perhaps that\'s why Vishy brought the \"d\" rook to b8 so that after 27. Ke4 Rb3 , the a5 pawn remains defended.
27...Rb4
S: Exchange sac ! But was it needed ? Black looked fine after 27...Rb3 28 . Rb1 Ra3. Before we evaluate this move, I would like to mention that considering the overall score , +1 for Magnus until now, it was a real question as to whether Anand should try for a win today or settle for equality and try tomorrow. It seems like Vishy decided to try today itself. However, objectively I feel 27..Rb3 would have given black a comfortable game.
28.Bxb4 cxb4 29.Nh5 Kb7 30.f4 gxf4 31.Nhxf4 Nxf4 32.Nxf4
S: Fast moves by Anand and multiple inaccuracies. White\'s pieces are just too active, while black\'s bishop on f8 and rook on a8 are unable to help create counterplay. I feel taking on b4 with the \'a\' pawn, instead of cxb could have been a better try now the rook on a8 takes part in the game immediately.
32...Bxc4 33.Rd7 Ra6 34.Nd5
S: Black loses the f pawn. It is to Carlsen\'s credit that he did not lose his cool. Despite black getting very good play out of opening, and then this exchange sac.
34...Rc6 35.Rxf7 Bc5 36.Rxc7+
S: Yes, Carlsen plays Rc7 and its dead lost after Rc7 - Nc7 - Kc7 - Rc1. Carlsen is on the way of retaining the World Champion title.
36...Rxc7 37.Nxc7 Kc6 38.Nb5 Bxb5 39.axb5+ Kxb5 40.e6 b3 41.Kd3 Be7 42.h4 a4 43.g5 hxg5 44.hxg5 a3 45.Kc3 (1:0) / (If: 45...Bxg5 46.Re5+ etc = (1:0))
And now again: Magnus Carlsen is FIDE World Champion ! Congratulations!
-------------------------------------------
Good luck! Georgi
-------------------------------------------
The provisional result for now is (after the eleventh game from everything 12 games) is:

Viswanathan Anand ( 4,5 : 6,5 ) Magnus Carlsen
or:
---
Viswanathan Anand (+1 =7 -3) Magnus Carlsen

Magnus Carlsen is FIDE World Chess Champion 2014!
Nov 23, 2014

He retained the title after defeating the challenger Viswanathan Anand 6,5 – 4,5 in a match played at the Winter Olympic City of Sochi.

Carlsen took the lead in game 2, with Anand immediately returning the blow in game 3. The Norwegian took the lead again in game 6 and managed to hold all difficulties in further games, in what turned out to be one of the most exciting matches of the century.

Vishy went “all-in” in game 11, but he did not find the precise continuation in a better position. The game went from won to lost, Magnus Carlsen took the full point and with it the title World Chess Champion 2014. (final standings and statistics)

Congratulations!

(stay tuned for a large report from Sochi)
