We end this review with the final two games of the recently concluded World Chess Championship:
Game 9 was a short win by Magnus Carlsen. Anand allows him to queen a pawn on move 27. The only explanation I can provide for my readers is that Rf4 was designed to result in Rh4 with mate on h7. Anand must have overlooked 28…Qe1. This move allows for 29…Qh4 with material advantage to black.
Game 10 was a fairly lengthy draw. 3. Bb5 took me by surprise. The subsequent exchange of the bishop contradicts the dogma of the advantage of the two bishops. White gets a nice Maroczy bind with 7. c4 and a centralized Queen on d4 in return. Otherwise; a fairly uneventul draw.
