Chennai: Defending champion Viswanathan Anand on Wednesday conceded that he came out of a lost position in the fourth game of the World Chess Championship match against Magnus Carlsen of Norway, which ended in a gruelling draw here.
"Something went wrong in the opening. I made one illogical move after the next and then I missed something with this knight move. And then I was just basically lost," Anand said at the post-game press conference.
"I am sure he had many wins in what he played. Towards the endgame it was a little bit scary in this four rooks endgame but finally when I gave a check on a8 and then moved my rook, I was safe," Anand said.
