Chess experts believe that Anand will be playing white today, which may give him a chance to win. But, if he loses this game, we need to gear up for a new chess champ. Anand will be playing white from now. A victory now can reduce the deficit to just 1 point and also unsettle Carlsen appears to be relaxed till now with a lead of 5-3.
But Anand is a tireless fighter, say his acquaintances and he has made it very clear in his post-game conference: "he match situation explains itself and I guess it's my job to liven things up but I guess I will try in the next game." Even as Anand plans on his next crucial move, Carlsen just needs a 1.5 from the coming 4 games.
