Chennai: Defending champion Viswanathan Anand offered apology after he played out a tame draw with white pieces in the second game of World Chess Championship clash against Magnus Carlsen of Norway in Chennai on Sunday.
"Today it's my turn to tender a slight apology," said Anand.
"The position we got after move 12 is a very sharp one. I have studied it in the past, it's very very complicated and I had not really expected it. That's clear," he said at the post-game conference at the Hyatt Regency hotel.
