Anand vs Carlsen - 9th game

Anand has lost the 9th game through a blunder unexpected at his level but expected in his present plight. The score is now 3 - 6. Carlsen needs only a draw from the remaining three games. In other words, Anand has to win all the remaining games to retain the championship. Anand's chances are next to nil.

Anand was doing well in the ninth game. It is a pity that he lost it. He was stoic in the press conference held after the game. India may not produce a phenomenon like Anand in the near future.
