2014 World Chess Championship: Anand salvages draw against Carlsen


 Current World Chess Champion
(Norway)

 The Challenger,
Former World Champion
Viswanathan 'Vishy' Anand
(India)

 From The Hindustantimes Times, India:

World Champion Magnus Carlsen drew with challenger Viswanathan Anand in the first game of World Chess Championship 2014.

After an aggressive start from the Indian Grand Master, the Norwegian whiz kid played a brilliant mid-game to wrest back initiative. Anand started losing the plot in the middle and committed errors towards the end. Magnus as usual kept on pushing for a win till the end, so much so that, even salvaging a draw became difficult for the Indian chess wizard. But, a brilliant move at the very end of the game helped Anand to force a draw.
