Anand Wins World Chess Championship

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

My man Kramnik came out swinging today, but alas, it was not to be. Anand has dethroned the true champion in the historical line of great match players by a score of 6.5-4.5. Now, congratulations are in order.


Kramnik 4 – Anand 6

That’s what I’m talkin’ ’bout! Practically a miniature! :)

Too bad World Chess Championship matches are so damn short these days. Anyway, tomorrow’s a rest day. Hopefully that doesn’t slow the momentum of the last couple games.


Kramnik 3 – Anand 6

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

A very exciting game today! Everyone watching live on the ICC was on the edge of their seats with anticipation as Kramnik looked sure to notch his first win. Alas, it was not to be, and it looks as though he’ll join the likes of Kasparov in more ways than one, i.e., by going an entire World Chess Championship match sans full point.


Kramnik 2 – Anand 5

Well, he stopped the bleeding anyway. And yes, this is Kramnik’s second Black in a row; they reversed the colors at the mid-way point.

According to the ever funny, often controversial, Brian Wall,

The game looked like a solidly played draw. In the final position Fritz gives Anand +2 but a monkey could see that both Kings are boxed out.


Kramnik 1.5 – 4.5

Game, set, and match. Well, not technically, but we’re now at the halfway mark, and Kramnik is looking down and out. Tomorrow’s a rest day, so he has to shake it off, sleep it off, fire Leko for sabotage, SOMETHING!



Serious chess. Serious fun!
