    I wish that Anand gave Carlsen tougher games. He made some noticeable unforced errors. I think if next WC challenger is Kramnik or Levon, I believe the matches for the World final would be better.

    Yes. The 9th game was for Anad after a very good opening and middle game play, and then he just made an incredible blunder with Nf1 (moved in minute 3:27:00 on this vid):



    Spanish commentator said that the Anad from 10 years ago would have won that game for sure.

    It's a shame because Carlsen is great player and I think he deserves the best of his rivals to be the great champion he can be.

    Soo.. I just finished watching some of Zurich's Chess Competition, I have to say that Carlsen still retain his sharpness even after he took a break. Games between him against Gelfand, Aronian, Nakamura, and Anand are must watch, entertaining in so many ways.

    Hmmm... there was a time when I was an avid chess player.... Long time I don't play tho... guess it's just because I'm such a bad looser... Anyway gotta re-start playing since I really liked it :33 even tho I really found it difficult at the beginning xD
