Game 5, World Title Match: Anand losses 2-3

Magnus Carlsen scored in Game 5 of the world title match taking place in Chennai: he didn't get anything from the opening, but managed to outplay Anand in a long and complicated fight.

The choice of the world champion 13...Bc7 can't be defined as a blunder, but exaclty after this move Norwegian got a chance to build a play "on two results" after exchanging the queens. Both players demonstrated errorless play up to some point.

Anand mentioned 34...Rd4 as the decisive mistake at the press conference. Although he might change his evaluation after analysing the position as at the moment there are no reasons to consider this move to be any decisive.

Indian missed a chance to draw later:   


45.Rc1+? A strange, unexplainable check. 45...Ra1 could easily hold the position. For example, 46.Bg8+ Kc6 47.Bxb3 Rxa3 48.Rxh4 Rxb3+ 49.Kc2 Rb4.
46.Kb2. Now White has a serious advantage which can already be decisive or close to it.
46...Rg1 47.Bg8+ Kc6? And this is already a blunder. 47...Kd4! kept some practical chances, and white still had an opportunity to make a mistake: 48.Bxb3? axb3 49.Rxh4+ Kd3!! The draw with the help of activization which Anand demonstrated the day before yesterday. 50.Kxb3 Rb1+! Another indispensable move. 51.Ka4 c4.
Instead of exchanging the bishops, White could have played stronger: 48.Rxh4+! Kd3 (this was still better) 49.Rg4 Bxg8 50.Rxg8, and Balck is in trouble. For instance, 48...Re1 51.Rd8+ Ke4 52.e6 Kf5 53.Rf8+ Kg6 54.Kc3 Rxe6 55.Kc4 Rb6 56.Rg8+ Kh6 57.Kxc5 Rb3 58.Rg3.
48.Rh6+ And Carlsen left Anand no chance.
48...Kd7 49.Bxb3 axb3 50.Kxb3 Rxg2 51.Rxh4 Ke6 52.a4 Kxe5 53.a5 Kd6 54.Rh7 Kd5 55.a6 c4+ 56.Kc3 Ra2 57.a7 Kc5 58.h4 1-0
