World Championship Match - Game 9

Opening: C67: Ruy Lopez: Berlin defense

Player(s): Carlsen, Anand

GM Larry Christiansen analyzes Game 9. Again a Berlin defense, but this time only 15 moves and just over an hour to find a repetition and the draw. It was a very short day in the office, with Magnus and Vishy probably feeling the fatigue and the stress of a World Championship Match. The first 7 games have been hard fought battles, and now it seems like the two rivals decided to go with the flow, and let the pieces play almost by themselves. The question is: who is taking advantege from two short draws in a row? Magnus leads by one point, and drawing games gets him closer to the final victory; on the other hand, Anand takes advantage of these "rest days" to pile up energy, and go "all out" in the last games. Vishy will have two whites in the last three games: two more chances to try to grab equality and hope in the rapid tiebreaks.
