  acirce: <Q: What about team championships, where people travel halfway round the world, meet someone they know well and play a quick draw? Isnít that also counter-productive?

Anand: I guess you are referring to my game against Kramnik in France? I wouldnít say this is something that is typical for team tournaments, it happens everywhere else. For example in France Kramnik played the Anti-Marshall, I found this move Ne3, which was an improvement on his game from the previous day, and actually it created interesting possibilities for White. But right the next move I made a mistake, and then the position completely fizzled out. It is in the nature of these openings, like the Sveshnikov or the Anti-Marshall, that you make just one inaccurate move and the position just fizzles out. We could have plodded on for a while, but essentially the game is dead. Itís something very fundamental in chess.>
