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. Enjoy!

Match score:

Carlsen - Anand 4,5-3,5

Thank you for another great analysis, this time on game 8, looks like very deep preparation indeed, (until move 27-28! I guess) so no way a club player will know all that, also nice pausing the video and asking "what would you do now?" that's like very hard puzzle solving and hope to see more from you both!
