Player(s): Carlsen, Anand

GM Lars Bo Hansen analyzes Game 6. 26. ... a4 instead of 26. ... Nxe5 made chess history today. Anand missed a huge chance to get a probably decisive advantage in Game 6. Carlsen played an inaccurate move, leaving all the chess fans breathless; when Anand replied with a4, in ICC people who were watching the game live thought it was a relay error, only to understand in a couple of minutes that two back-to-back minor blunders had just been played in Game 6 of the World Championship Match. In the press conference after the game, Magnus admitted: "mistakes happen; sometimes you are lucky and get away with it". Anand said he was focused on the a pawn, and didn't catch Magnus' mistake. After that moment, Anand played some imprecise moves, and the game ended before time control, giving the incumbent World Champion the lead, halfway through the match. After today's win, Carlsen leads 3.5 to 2.5.
