    Carlsen vs Anand tomorrow. what do you think will be the result? right now, if you didnt know, they're tied for 1st place going into round 10 with 5.5/9.

    im hoping for Carlsen to take it.

    That would be brilliant, but it doesn't seem all that likely, considering that he plays Black and has lost with White against Anand in the first part of the tournament. I would be happy with a draw.

    Looks like Carlsen will lose - at least after Anand`s 30th move black position is hopeless.

    And 30...gxf5 is losing immeadeatly. So Anand is becoming absolute leader.

    29. .... Re8 was a transmission error. Be8 was played instead.

    Oh. Then Carlsen can try to defend. But anyway his position is looking bad.

    Anand played very well - so he deserved it.

    Carlsen blew it too easily. I think he is going to end up finishing with 0 or -1 score.

    "blew too easily"? LOL I know someone who will get hopeless position against Anand much faster.

    Can you show some "easy" mistakes made by Carlsen in this game?

    Yes. He blew it too easily. From near-to-even position to dead lost one in under 10 moves.

    The fact that "someone" would lose even faster has nothing to do with this.
