Norway Chess Super Tournament 2013 Round 2: Magnus Carlsen – Viswanathan Anand 1/2-1/2

Norway Chess Super Tournament 2013 Round 2: World Champion Viswanathan Anand playing black against his challenger Magnus Carlsen, in what might well be their only meeting before the World Championship match in November, drew the game. The Sicilian (Moscow Variation) left Black with a backward pawn on d6, but with compensation in active pieces. Black got the pair of bishops, but controlling the d5 square with his knight white still held a slight edge in the early middle game. The positional game ended peacefully.
