World Chess Championship 2014

Magnus Carlsen wins the World Chess Championship 2014 over the player he defeated in 2013, Vishy Anand by 6.5-4.5 with one game to spare. This was a tense, tightly fought contest with games often going beyond the point where a result is often agreed, which is great for chess fans.

NOTE

Interesting insight into Magnus' s state of mind I the early phase of this match. It seems to have taken him a while to truly focus. Kasparov also gives his verdict on how playing the world championship now differs from his time of dominance.

NOTE

A complex game that put both players under a lot of pressure. Vishy got some good play, but ultimately tried for force matters with an exchange sacrifice on move 27 as the time control drew near. This proved interesting but unsound.

NOTE

Anand fans are getting worried. It should be remembered though that Kasparov sensationally won the last game of the 1987 Seville match against Karpov to level that match. There is still a quarter of the match to go!
