Magnus Carlsen's father Mr Henrik told NDTV: "Carlsen is happy about his preparation so far. We expect Anand to fight back in game 9. Vishy will come out fighting like a tiger. Anything can still happen." Mr Henrik however refused to divulge any details about his son's style of preparation.

"He is happy about the two-point lead. But he speaks about things other than chess; he plays cards and listens to music to unwind and to beat the stress," added Mr Henrik.
