More like it. The rest day has done them good. The first two games are history.
This game went right down to the wire leaving both with a King and Bishop v King and Bishop.
Nothing new at this level. Topalov - Adams Sofia 2007 finished the very same way.
RHP has over 50 examples of such an ending appearing.
(except some of the RHP lads have played on and on looking for a mate…bless them.)
tonymelissa9389 and stevewu have had this KB v KB twice Game 8659326
and Game 8966182
(both games ended in a draw. Neither of them stumbled into the mate….there is a mate.)
Carlsen - Anand, Game 3 2013 World Championship. from the final position.
As for the actual game itself.
How can this be OK. Surely Anand could have pulled more out of this than he did.
If Carlsen is going to spot him bad positions and get away with it then Carlsen
has won the war of nerves.
Anand may look back on this as a missed chance, but Carlsen is slippery.
There were dozens of variations going through Anand’s mind.
I thought it all petered out on move 35. with Anands 35…Bf6.
This is a pure hackers view and the idea (the hit on f2) can appear earlier
but possibly so can the same defensive set - up.
