After a small break -one of your commentators had to play a bit of chess himself – Robert Ris and Erwin l’Ami are back for a recap of game 7. Today was a Berlin Wall and the players were long following a recent game between Giri and Radjabov. On move 25 Anand tried to improve upon this game and by clicking on the video below you can see whether he succeeded in doing so!
Not exactly the most spectacular game of the match but an important one nonetheless! Game 8 saw Magnus Carlsen showing deep preparation in a rare line of the Queens Gambit Declined and holding a comfortable draw with the black pieces. How this will effect the remained of the match and others topics are discussed in the video below.
