  Zhbugnoimt: Anand was White
Sep-16-14  coolconundrum: What a boring game.
Sep-16-14  john barleycorn: < Zhbugnoimt: Anand was White>

I know. There is a little irony.

Sep-16-14  1971: This <might> have been a case of hiding prep as the Ruy figures to be a critical line in the match, because this was a totally harmless approach from white. Anand's prep in the other 2 games were pretty strong.
Sep-16-14  Steve.Patzer: Anand intentionally chooses not to reveal his preparation for the November match with Carlsen.
Sep-16-14  1d410: Let's not get delusional. Aronian is good enough to draw vs. any player.
Sep-16-14  mrbasso: Is he? well then, why did he lose against MVL and Caruana ?
Sep-17-14  IraqSon: FB and MVL are full of energy.
Sep-18-14  Ke2: Anand is hiding. A snake in the grass -
