Carlsen Faces Anand in Norway Today

But the Super GM Tournament has been a Forgettable One for Both

Altibox Norway Chess, the strongest Super GM tournament, has so far been a forgettable one for both World Champion Magnus Carlson and the player he dethroned Viswanathan Anand.

Anand vs Carlsen 2The two face each other today in the final round with leader Aronian having a comfortable two-point lead over both.

It was only in Round 7 that Anand had his first win, with Fabiano Caruana being his victim. Still, that was one up on Carlsen who had his first win only yesterday, in Round 8 over Karjakin.

I intend to watch the live streaming, as I did last night when Anand drew with Aronian. Carlsen holds the psychological edge while Anand will hope to salvage some lost pride.
