Video recap: Carlsen-Anand 2014, Game 2

Magnus Carlsen has beaten Viswanathan Anand in Game 2 of the 2014 World Championship match in Sochi. In a 20-minute recap of the action IM Lawrence Trent calls the game a “masterpiece”, and GM Stuart Conquest joins him in admiration of an awesome display of “power chess” from the young Norwegian. The game may have ended with a “howler” from Anand, but our commentators agree that even the best can blunder when put under such immense pressure.
