Congratulations to Magnus Carlsen, the new World Chess Champion. While today’s game did get a bit wild at times, Carlsen was never worse than even, and actually had winning chances throughout much of the game. He missed a shot at a winning edge around move 30, then repeatedly passed up opportunities to seek a draw through repetition of moves to continue pressing whatever advantage he might have. In the end, Carlsen went into a very long forced line where he sacrificed a knight and allowed both players to promote a pawn to a queen, resulting in an endgame where Carlsen had a queen and three pawns against Anand’s queen and knight. That was clearly a draw, but it became doubtless when Carlsen forced a trade of queens, and official after all of the material came off the board.
Magnus Carlsen is almost sure of becoming the next chess world champion after he won for the third time in the World Championship match in Chennai against Viswanathan Anand on Thursday. In a sharp Nimzo-Indian, the 43-year-old Indian got a nice attacking position and had his chances, but there was never a clear mate. At some point Anand lost his way in the complications and blundered; on move 28 he had to resign and so Carlsen has increased his lead to 6-3. The 22-year-old Norwegian needs only a draw tomorrow to win the title.
It’s all over but the shouting. Magnus Carlsen has moved within a half-point of the World Chess Championship after capturing another win with the black pieces over Viswanathan Anand in the ninth game of their match. That puts Carlsen in position to win the title with just one draw in any of the final three games, including two games with White.
The eighth match game between Magnus Carlsen, playing white, and Viswanathan Anand ended in a draw after 33 moves. The Norwegian challenger switched to 1.e4 and the World Champion defended with the same line that his opponent has been using: the Berlin variation of the Ruy Lopez. Not much happened in this game and the players even played a few more moves after a dead drawn pawn ending had been reached. The score in the World Championship match in Chennai is 5-3 in favor of Carlsen.
