Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-04-08  thathwamasi: Word is that Anand could have pressed for a win, but since a draw was enough to win, he preferred not to trouble the already tired kid. And more so, 3-0 would have been a real bad score for Magnus. I don't if this true, but knowing Anand, this is a realy possibility.
Aug-05-08  Udit Narayan: Anand is a real gentleman. Furthermore, he and Magnus are good friends.
Aug-05-08  DeltaHawk: I really hope not there is a controversy because Carlsen is not playing his true rating.
Aug-06-08  VaselineTopLove: Where is the win here for White? How could Anand have pressed on?
Aug-15-08  hamham: <VaselineTopLove>

He could have pressed on for a win. That doesn't mean there is a won position here. Re-read please.
