The 2nd game of the World Championship match in Sochi, Russia has ended successfully for the champion who has defeated his opponent in 35 moves with the white pieces. After a seemingly calm opening, Carlsen got big advantage by the series of maneuvers which were impressive in their precision, and the game ended by Anand's blunder in a difficult position.

A few excerpts from the press conference:

Carlsen: 'There wasn't too much in the opening, but after 19.Rg3 I started to feel optimistic'.
Anand: 'It's a pity because I almost came back into the game, but then I blew it away (according to Magnus, Black's position was remaining bad irrespective of the final blunder - CN).'

The detailed analysis by GM Andrey Deviatkin will follow later. Tomorrow, November 10th, is the first day-off in the match.
