Carlsen-Anand: World Championship Coverage

Chess.com will offer a wide array of exclusive, comprehensive coverage of the 2013 World Championship Match between Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand - taking place in Chennai, India from November 7th-28th.

With live (ChessTV) coverage during the round, exclusive on- site reporting, and the only (as far as we know) "post game show," Chess.com plans to offer its worldwide community, in all time zones, the most detailed look into all the action from Chennai.

Starting with the live coverage, anchor host, FIDE Master Mike Klein, will lead an all-star team every morning - starting at 5AM - roughly 30 minutes after the first move has been played. Mike will host ChessTV's live coverage alongside guest commentators such as Grandmasters Irina Krush, Alex Yermolinsky, Dejan Bojkov, Melik Khachiyan, Jesse Kraai and others. International Masters and FIDE Masters known well to the Chess.com community will also be joining the live shows at different times.

In addition to his daily news reports and exclusive, on-site video footage (which you can expect to find on Chess.com's YouTube Channel - click here to subscribe) Peter Doggers, Chess.com's embedded reporter, plans to "call in" during each live broadcast, potentially with very special guests, to provide descriptions of the "in-person vibe" among other things.

Magnus Carlsen is the challenger

And what about the thousands of people who can't reasonably be expected to follow all the games while in progress? Don't they deserve a live show too? Well, for all those living in the Western Hemisphere - needing to play catch-up each morning / early afternoon - we've planned something extra special just for you! International Master Danny Rensch and Grandmaster Ben Finegold will host the only (as far as we know) comprehensive "post game show" immediately following the conclusion of each round.

Viswanathan Anand is the defending champion

Set to start each day at 9AM Pacific, 12PM NOON Eastern, "The Morning After" show will see Rensch and Finegold dive deeply into the games, discussing opening preparation, what the result (whatever it is) means to the overall "match perspective," what the next day might be likely to bring, etc. The show will last 1.5-2 hours each day. Danny and Ben will once again be joined by Peter Doggers (likely, depending on his on-site duties) to get his exclusive, from-the-press-room take on how the players felt about their performances.

Chess.com will also offer a live "relay" of the Live PGN to its own Live Chess Arena, which represents the launching of our official "Live Chess Presenters" group. You can now expect more relays of top grandmaster tournaments from around the world. Now you don't have to guess which web site to go to for live games from super-tournaments - Chess.com will have them all!

Add all of this to a number of planned premium video lectures, articles from top GMs (including one from a Carlsen second coming out shortly) as well as detailed breakdowns after the match in our Master's Bulletin, Chess.com is holding nothing back regarding its coverage of this incredible event.

Anand holds the lifetime edge in classical head-to-head play, but Carlsen won their last encounter, at this year's Tal Memorial.



The official website, displaying the complete schedule as well as other happenings from Chennai is chennai2013.fide.com. Live games will also be available from the official website. To see Chess.com's full TV Schedule, go to www.chess.com/tv and subscribe to our Google Calendar.

    @shokkin......  Anand did better than I thought he would.   Magnus does not need a computer to beat Anand.....he is a computer, you dumb f***.  Take your home boys defeat as gracefully as your hero Anand did if you have any respect for Anand or for chess.  Chess does not need a-holes spouting crap, whining and crying.  Rubbish !

    shockinn, just accept that your guy lost and move on.  Anand is taking it like a gentleman, so should you.

    @scaccomoto: Carlsen and Anand are not playing to entertain you.  In a match like this, it is advisable not to play to win every game, to conserve your energy and play solid, prophylactic chess.  Carlsen has proven the effectiveness of this method; just because it doesn't dazzle you doesn't mean it's not good smart chess.  Go look up some old Tal games if you want to be dazzled by romantic tactics and reckless attacks.

    I wanted to see more "fireworks" in the chess match between Anand And Carlsen. Thus far, there have been no 'creative plays."  The moves have been overly cautious as oppose to daring, predictable instead of surprising. But, don't get me wrong, Anand and Carlsen are good GM's.

    lakshmanhari,  It must be some sort of language barrier concerning the words "Ancestral," or "Nuance."  Either way, there is no nuance.  The argument people have against India as the venue I already mentioned below.  One could say there was jet lag in the Moscow games, but Gelfand and Anand are both about the same distance from Moscow in terms of time.

    Carlsen was caught cheating with a computer. Anand, being the gentleman that he is, declined to comment.

    Who is the win?....very confuse......

    Game two draw... certainly not unusual in matches but we fans long for the days of fischer or kasparov when real men played to win!!! You wudnt see carlsen play sicilian poisioned pawn or benoni like fischer did to signal its going to be a fight... bring it!! And even in the quiet positional games refer to game 6 Fischer vs Spassky... placid beauty!! Or the truly epic battles of Karpov-Kasparov when men tried to kick each others ass lol!

    When Carlsen was younger he played more aggressively till he found out he cudnt get away with it against 2700 players, most notably the likes of Kramnik and others. maybe he because of His limited proficiency of the openings (which he himself confesses he is not given to the study of) he cant press the Game from the first move  forward like other greats!

    However His amazing natural understanding of of the simple mechanics of positions and themes, and endgame proficiency seem to more than compensate for this. But for us "real men" who arent playing for a million dollars LOL... We want to see some brilliance in our champions that inspires us! Not the ability to simplify and draw the game and try later as white!!

    For me a true champion that inspires tries to prove that he is a good bit better, not just marginally. Its personal... he wants to kick their ass, not win in a rapid or worse an armageddon game. I want someone that inspires me to play better, look deeper, and play like Im going to win with either color!

    Maybe I wud rather see a brilliant attacking game by morphy and others like him... even if houdini, fritz, or other engines find a refutation 13 moves later! As long as they are more concerned with rating points so as to be invited to major tournaments, rather than playing to the max, to the Kings, to prove they ARE the BEST, then we will forever be disapointed and uninspired. Just my thoughts anyways guys.

    I only said ancestral, as Gelfand became an Israeli after migrating there.

    You missed the nuance I can understand.

    lakshmanhari,

    You make it sound as if Gelfand might have had some mythical advantage through ancestral spirits.  The advantages one might argue is that Anand will not suffer from jet lag, used to the food and water, knows the local customs, etc.
