Anand recaps Carlsen vs Caruana (2)

by Sagar Shah
12/8/2018 – Ten days on from the end of the World Championship and the match is still very much in the news. In a previous report, we presented a 31-minute interview with five-time World Champion Viswanathan Anand and his take on the games played in London. Sagar Shah of ChessBase India transcribed the highlights of his commentary which we’ve converted to a ChessBase interactive game viewer, so you could easily replay and analyse while listening to Vishy. Today we continue with games 7–12. Learn and enjoy.

Part 2

It was our last day of the "one-year homeless journey" that we (Amruta and I) had begun on 27th of November, 2017, and what better thing to do than to interview the absolute best chess player of India and one of the best in the world, five-time World Champion Viswanathan Anand. After his success at the Tata Steel Chess India Blitz 2018, Vishy has a few days off before he will once again be in action at the World Rapid and Blitz 2018. We were able to catch him at his home in Kotturpuram, Chennai, where he spent a solid half an hour explaining all the intricacies of the World Championship Match 2018.

@ macauley:

Thank you very much! The ChessBase coverage of this World Championship was really excellent, and this recap by Anand and Sagar Shah is quite the icing on the cake!

@ Petrarlsen - That's fixed now, thanks.

When he was talking about the English being a Sicilian reversed with an extra tempo and not yielding an advantage, it reminded me of David Levy's book "How Fischer Plays Chess". He described how young Bobby so loved the KID and naively assumed that that set up with white (KIA) would be a formidable weapon with the extra tempo. But after numerous games that got him no significant advantage in the opening, he realized he had to abandon it.

@ Sagar Shah: There is a (technical) problem: in Part 1, the replayable games were already Games 7 to 12, so games 1 to 6 are missing altogether.

As you certainly have already done all the work to transcribe them for the replayable board, it would be quite a pity that we couldn't access them!

(And one more time, big thanks to you and Anand for these extremely interesting insights!)
