Mar-17-09  VaselineTopLove: From the Amber archives, Anand offered a draw after 27..a4, Carlsen refused and then Carlsen offered a draw after 33.g4, and when Anand refused, a clear "No" could be heard across the playing hall.

  acirce: <There were reports that Carlsen angered you in the second game. You had lost the blindfold game against him and in the rapid game the Norwegian declined your draw offer even though the position was equal.

<I was only slightly angry but not really furious. I decided to take it more as a joke. However, when he declined my draw offer I was really astonished because the position was completely equal. When he offered peace a couple of moves later I wanted to go one on top of him and declined (laughs). But I did not realize that I did that in such a loud way that everybody in the playing hall could hear it. But that was okay. I have good relations with Magnus and we analyzed the game afterwards in a friendly way.>> http://www.chesstigers.de/ccm9_inde...
