On what turned out to be a pretty bad day in office, five-time world champion Anand went down rather tamely in the second game on Sunday and now trails 0.5-1.5 in the 12-game match. Anand’s body language also suggested that the king is currently down especially in the light of the fact that the opening had gone quite well for the Indian ace in both the games. However, as was the case in the last world championship match, Carlsen tuned the position of both games to his liking after some time and while Anand salvaged a half point in the first game, in the second he never got a chance. Also Read – Khel Ratna for Deepa and Bajrang, Arjuna for JadejaAnand looked more tentative than Carlsen and it was hesitation that cost him dearly in the second game.To his credit, Carlsen was at his best and did what he has mastered against top class opponents. An innocuous opening reached a level middle game and then the complexities stared to burden Anand to the extent that he fumbled and produced a rare blunder. This was clearly caused by sustained pressure by the Norwegian.In the last world championship match, Anand had drawn four before losing the fifth game. Anand will have to not only stop further damage but also seek a quick cruise control to stage a comeback in the match. In the third game on Tuesday Anand will play with white pieces.
