Anand vs Carlsen, 2013

"It is increadible, Carlsen plays <c5-c4> which Botvinnik long time ago called antipositional because it releases a tension in the centre (on d4), the famous game Botvinnik vs Capablanca, 1938.

In that game Capablanca even won a pawn on a4 after bringing the Knight on b3 but lost crushingly on the kingside.

These were all dogmas put upon the players which in fact do not exist - Carlsen plays peasant-like move <...c5-c4> which looks antipositional but still wins because White's Kingside attack is one move short!

How do we call it - computer chess, young age, play with energy?

Whatever we call it but it is certainly the end of classical chess (Alekhine, Capablanca, Botvinnik, Fischer, Karpov)."
