Anand - Chosen to teach Kramnik some humility!
Compiled by hitman84

Obviously Anand didn't quote the above statement. But his games did! ;)

What a fitting reply by the Champion Anand who was called by Kramnik a champion on paper, who wins tournaments by beating the bottom half(LOL just think about it - how can we know who the bottom half players are before the tournament concludes?), and most importantly considered having lent the title to Anand.

Here is the interview of Kramnik after Anand won the Mexico World Championship Tournament:

This collection is exclusively dedicated to Anand's wins in the Anand - Kramnik World Championship Match (2008) all of which came in the first half of the 12 games match. He did lose one game in the 10th round, but that was when he had already started playing very conservatively.
