|May-30-12|| ||pamparana: Boris could easily equalize here...|
|May-30-12|| ||jussu: The only thing about the official site I complain about (not just complain but swear loudly and non-stop) is that big button "Disable Houdini analysis" that just doesn't work.|
|May-30-12|| ||erniecohen: Game 3: it's all but over now. I can't believe that neither the players nor the Svidler noticed that white had a complete win from moves 21-25.|
|May-30-12|| ||frogbert: was the 3rd game drawn too, or what?|
|May-30-12|| ||Morten: Is game 3 officially drawn?|
|May-30-12|| ||frogbert: now it is|
|May-30-12|| ||Wood Mover: Congrats Anand, he has defended his crown. :)|
|May-30-12|| ||aipragma: I will go away from the championship with an appreciation for commentators who dont have a habit of saying "Yeah, yeah, yeah..." |
a big wish that it will occur to the organizers of the next world chess championship to have a truly realtime display of the chessboard (something as simple as an overhead cam would be non-intrusive and effective)...
Kudos again to Gelfand's competitiveness and much satisfaction in Anand retaining his chess champion status)...
|May-30-12|| ||iroozdar: Anand havent face of a world chess champion, i think we (we=pepole) must say to M.Carlsen and other top young players that go to match for find best and real chess champion|
|May-30-12|| ||acirce: Congratulations, Vishy!!!|
|May-30-12|| ||arjunkakar: Congrats to Both Vishy and to Gelfald. I think In many ways when you see where Gelfald reached- this has been quite brilliant. He can be proud of where he reached. He punched way above his weight and kudos to him|
|May-30-12|| ||Chessinfinite: Congratulations !! Vishy Anand!. Good job in the end to retain World Champion title! |
Well done Boris Gelfand !, amazing resistance shown by the Challenger
Could not have asked for a better outcome. Lots will be discussed about the match.. till then, take some rest and relax !
|May-30-12|| ||shivasuri4: Congratulations, Vishy! Well fought, Gelfand!|
|May-30-12|| ||jussu: Congrats to Anand (a little silly thing to say, though, because I am certain he never looks into this place)!|
<Anand havent face of a world chess champion>
Now this is a totally new criterion of a champion to me. Would Carmen Kass suit you? She even plays chess, should this be of any importance.
|May-30-12|| ||amadeus: Congrats, Anand!|
|May-30-12|| ||Mr. Bojangles: Congratulations to Anand, it was a very tough match for him but he overcame. Well done champ!|
Congratuations to Gelfy too for putting up a splendid challenge. He has made his mark in chess for sure.
It has been a pleasant 4 weeks for me and I enjoyed every moment of it.
|May-30-12|| ||Arcturar: The result was probably correct in the end. But it must be devastating to Boris...losing a drawn position and then failing to win a completely winning one...And after only getting to this point after blundering in Game 8...I really, really feel for the man and wish him the best of luck in the future. He will probably never have a chance at the title, but perhaps he can break back into the Top 10.|
|May-30-12|| ||Chessmaster9001: Congratulations Vishy!!! Also credits should go to Gelfand for his resistance and amazing preparation.|
|May-30-12|| ||americanlala: Wow!! Had great time watching it live with chessnetwork.Congrats Anand !! Iam Off to sleep now.|
|May-30-12|| ||Caissas Clown: Valiant effort , Boris ! Never mind - you gave it your best shot and can be proud of getting to the final.|
|May-30-12|| ||Oxnard: And so Anand regained the crown in a tiebreak which saw the bare minimum number of decisive games (1) in the fewest possible encounters to cement such a slight differential (4).|
A fitting conclusion to a horribly boring match!
|May-30-12|| ||hominid: according to http://gm.chesszen.com Anand is the second strongest world champion in the history.|
|May-30-12|| ||mrbasso: Finally Gelfand lost his nerve.|
|May-30-12|| ||pamparana: Cannot help but feel sad for Boris. This is the moment where he would look back after his retirement...and wonder what if...|
On the other hand, he can take the money and have a great life :)
|May-30-12|| ||capanegra: Just what most of us were afraid of: the WCC was decided because of time pressure in a single rapid that should have ended in a draw, thanks to this awful format. |
Anyway, congratulations to Vishy for keeping the crown!
