World Chess Championship 2013 – Anand vs Carlsen, Round 2

World Chess Championship 2013

World Chess Championship 2013The 2013 World Chess Championship has begun with two relatively peaceful games as both players continue to feel out their opponent’s preparation and approach. Round 2 of the World Chess Championship featured defending World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand opening with 1. e4 and World Chess Championship Challenger Magnus Carlsen employing the Caro-Kann Defense, something that has not been seen very frequently in Carlsen’s career and most likely came as a surprise for Anand. Carlsen easily achieved equality in the opening and slightly better chances in the endgame thanks to a better light-squared pawn structure for his dark-squared bishop, so Anand agreed on a 3-move repetition leading to a draw on move 25. The World Chess Championship 2013 is currently tied at 1-1 with two draws in two rounds.
