Carlsen Retains Title, 6.5-4.5
Magnus Carlsen of Norway retained his world chess title beating challenger Viswanathan Anand in the eleventh match game to win the 12-match series with a game to spare at 6.5-4.5. Anand took the risk and played for a win with 23…b5, breaking on the queen side in the Berlin variation of the Ruy Lopez. Just when experts thought the tide had turned in favour of black, Anand’s idea of sacrificing a rook for bishop on move 27 gave white a safe position in this crucial encounter. Overall, in the match, Carlsen won games two, six and eleven. Anand won game three and other games were drawn. If Anand had won game six, history could have been different. “Anand fought this match very well,” said D.V. Sundar, Vice President, FIDE who was also in Sochi for some time at the start of the match. Anand was better prepared and achieved some advantage despite playing with the black pieces. He decided to force something which was unnecessary and it ended well for Carlsen said one Russian Grand Master.
