After two draws in the last games the score is 5.5 – 4.5 for Carlsen. It seems he is satisfied with a one point advantage as he took a quick draw with white in round 9. Anand decided to play the calm 1…e5 and instead tried to put the pressure in round 10. He even managed to get a slide edge in the Grünfeld, it was clear that Carlsen was out of the line while Anand was still playing quickly. Eventually Anand couldn’t find a way to keep the advantage, got into time trouble and decided to go for simplifications.
I expect Anand to play the Sicilian in the next round. I don’t think he will play for a win only in the last game. On the other hand Carlsen may not play 1.e4. I got a feeling that tomorrow is the last game of the match, I bet on Carlsen because Anand may play incautiously – he knows he is running out of time. Hopefully I am not right and we will observe some more emotions.
