Former World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand came prepared for the rare line Magnus Carlsen deployed in Game 5. Carlsen diluted to a drawn a game with plenty of time on his clock, but Anand’s confessions at the post-game press conference possibly meant that he was well-prepared up to move 20.Nd5 at the least. You can read a nice report on Game 5 at Chess Blog. Replay the game below with Chess King.
