Anand - Carlsen World Championship Round 2 - Draw

Chess World Championship between Viswanathan Anand vs Magnus Carlsen reached round two and another , short, draw. Carlsen was black, Anand started with 1.e4 and surprised by Carlsen's Caro Kann defence. The game did reach an hour but ended in 25 moves when Queens was exchanged and the board indeed looks drawish.

With this result we assumed both players are heading for more opening surprises strategy, and they did not want to go beyond unknown position.

Although two draws was disappointed to some chess fans, Garry Kasparov gives a chilling comments by saying his match with Anand started with 5 draws. Well, maybe not a short one, Garry.
