Viswanathan Anand vs. Magnus Carlsen at World Chess Championship 2013


Round 3 – November 12 – Draw

This felt like the real start of the tournament, with the previous 2 games being just “get to know you” warm-up sessions.

Sadly for chess fans, this game too ended in a Draw. It was an exciting game however, though neighter player felt confident enough: “I think it was good to get the match going a little bit. I guess both of us were a bit nervous today. There was some tension, both on the board and some nerves as well. But really that’s what it’s all about.
