Congrats to Magnus Carlsen but Kudos to Anand

I  just watched game 11 – which turned out to be the last – of the championship 2014, LIVE, starting from move 22, to the end. Fascinating to watch even for a chess dummy like me…

As someone posted on Twitter “there is no poker face in chess” 🙂   Anand had a nice move and gave Carlsen ‘the stare’, Carlsen did not look too happy. But he was able to defend the surprise attack and eventually won the game.

See below for a few twitter and screen grabs. In the screen grabs, the upper board is the actual game and the lower board the board where the commentary dudes try variants.

The last picture shows them (quickly) discussing the game right after the match.

What a sport and what brilliant dudes…
