Sochi: The initial strategy has backfired and it's time for Viswanathan Anand to reconcile and come out with fresh ideas to recover the lost ground in the World Chess Championship match against holder Magnus Carlsen on Tuesday.
On what turned out to be a pretty bad day in office, five-time world champion Anand went down rather tamely in the second game on Sunday and now trails 0.5-1.5 in the 12-game match. (Anand Relieved After Opening Draw)
Anand's body language also suggested that the king is currently down especially in the light of the fact that the opening had gone quite well for the Indian ace in both the games. (Anand, Carlsen Draw 1st Game)
