Carlsen, Anand Dish Out Mediocre Chess in World’s Strongest Tournament
It was a waste of time watching two world champions, current and past, play out a draw by repetition of moves in the ninth and final round of the Norway Chess 2017 that ended that minutes ago.
V Anand appeared to hold the edge after the first 10 moves, but then he started to cower and got into defensive mode. Magnus Carlsen was no better as both were perhaps too keen to avoid finishing at the bottom of the world’s strongest Super GM tournament.
Carlsen’s dismal performance all through the event will have been a huge disappointment for his home fans in Norway.
