Anand-Carlsen 1-0
Carlsen-Anand 1-0

Too much aggressive plan from Ivanchuk to sacrifice Queen was hit too hard by Morozevich that in 3 more moves Ivanchuk called it a day! Moro won!

Here is the game!

Vishy Anand started the game in a very attacking way, let his passed pawn till last rank but 1, just awaiting to Queen, to save it, he scarified 2 more pawns! Carlsen has no option to give up material, Bishop, so as to stop the pawn to be Queen’ed!, this went into an end game where Anand was up Bishop more, both had a Knight and 2 pawns, the game was clear win for Anand, Carlsen resigned, Anand won!!

Here is the game!

In the Rapid game, it was extraordinary fighting game, both side were tactical and solid, however when endgame reached, Carlsen came up with a pawn more! Looked like Anand allowed Carlsen’s pawn go straight without any hurdles, and with King’s backup Carlsen din’t give a chance to Anand, Anand’s overloaded Rook weakness was evident and Anand resigned, Carlsen won!! Great game, I think, for Carlsen, it would have been, “YA, ATLAST I WON ON ANAND!!” feeling (sorry for the use of Capital letters, but it was excitement as the very young Carlsen’s first ever victory on Anand!, yes news is confirmed!!!, and he lost so many near-to-victory games with Anand)

Here is the game!

Looked like it was Topalov, who was giving up his game to Aronian, he gave 3 pawns for nothing, as at some point there is no attack position gained for him. Also Topalov’s Queen has been some-what stuck for sometime, also looked like, he was losing his Knight soon. Topalov gave up by himself, Aronian won.

Here is the game!
