75th Tata Steel Chess 2013 R4: Anand Demolishes “Nightmare Opponent” Aronian (Game + Videos)

The fourth round at the 75th Tata Steel Chess 2013 witnessed World Chess Champion Viswanathan Anand demolishing World No. 3 Levon Aronian. Anand said, “This could easily be one of the best games I have played. To win a game like this against Levon, who is my nightmare opponent, as you probably know, is definitely wonderful. Funnily enough both my black wins against him have been real classics. I don’t win that often, but when I do it is at least a good one.” Watch the two video statements given immediately after the end of the game and replay the game with Chess King.
