Kasparov Advises Anand Not to Repeat His Own Mistakes

"A strange match but oddly balanced. Carlsen plays without openings and Anand without endgames! Statistically, that's in Magnus's favor," Garry Kasparov wrote in his Twitter after Game 5 of the world title match between Carlsen and Anand finished. 

Now the former world champion is in Jakarta, Indonesia. Kasparov criticized the move 13...Bc7: "Not to say Anand's 13..Bc7 was objectively bad, probably it is fine & had many chances to hold draw. But fits Carlsen's style perfectly...

...This is the conundrum. Hard to allow fear of opponent's strengths (or own weaknesses) push you away from objective evaluation of position. After 13..Nxd4 14.exd4 the queens are still on the board & black has the bishop pair to compensate for white's central pawns. A middlegame! Again, is this objectively superior, no. And easy to make recommendations in hindsight of course! But looked more pragmatic vs Magnus.

...Anand is trying to play the best moves. What else? He is world champion! Hiding from equal endgame would be psychological blow. But I had similar problem in 2000 when I lost my title to Kramnik. I played into his Berlin, his style, because I thought it was "best". Situation not nearly as concrete for Anand, but yes, good to avoid long equal endgames vs much younger player who loves them! But how? Anand crushed Kramnik by getting him into very sharp positions. Was very well prepared & played great, but also much more at home there. As I said after game 3, Carlsen content to wait patiently for 'his' positions, not trying to fight sharp opening preparation war. Despite his gifts, no way for Carlsen to catch up to Anand's opening prep advantage. So, avoid it & play to own strengths. Today it worked. Similarly, it is unlikely Anand will fail to reach a few sharp positions of "his" preference. Then we'll see first big test for Magnus."
