Games of the 2013 World Chess Anand vs Carlsen
Surely we are facing the title of the world of most media chess since the mythical clashes between Kasparov and Karpov, as the young Norwegian player Magnus Carlsen is the new idol of the new generations of chess and Vishy Anand the last classic champion of chess, we will see who prevails in this exciting struggle of generations!
Anand has been World Chess Champion since 2007, a title he revalidated against Kramnik in October 2008. Later in 2010 he faced Topalov to successfully defend his world title again and in May 2012 again prevailed in defending the world chess scepter Against Boris Gelfand
The score was very bad for Vishy Anand, then came the number nine game of the 2013 World Chess World and we were glad to see as Anand threw his pawn "d" two squares forward and how his rival Magnus Carlsen entered the Nimzo-Indian Defense, answering Anand with the aggressive one! move 4.f3
On move 8 Magnus surprises with 8.–c4 trying to close the position and that the white bishop does not comfortably occupy the d3 box, although it seems an inflexible play.
Anand plays very well on the king's flank and we begin to see a very interesting game of Chess at the strategic and attack level against the king. It had several interesting plays Anand, since his position gives for a lot, had for example 18.Tb2 and the play suggested by GM Giri 20.f5! with great attack on the king of Magnus!
Anand is definitely going on the attack with 24.f6 although in Gary Kasparov's opinion it is a hasty option, it seems a very aggressive move!
And finally we got to Anand's Big Mistake on Move 28.Nf1?? which gives an easy victory to Magnus Carlsen, who completes a good defensive game.
Anand debió jugar 28.Af1 y tras la variante 28.–Dd1; 29.Th4-Dh5!; 30.Cxh5-gxh5; 31.Txh5-Af5; 31.g6! se llega a una posición poco clara que según los expertos podía terminar en tablas!
Después del gran error 28.Cf1?? el campeonato del mundo de ajedrez 2013 quedó prácticamente decidido, pues Carlsen se adelantaba por 6 a 3 en el marcador, quedándose a sólo unas tablas de alzarse con el campeonato, hecho que sucedió en la ronda 10 y logró proclamarse Campeón del mundo de Ajedrez 2013
