Kramnik: Vishy will have a psychological initiative


Vladimir Kramnik: "I am Not Available for Any Offers Throughout Next Two Months"

In an interview to Chesspro GM Kramnik was asked whether he would agree to help Anand in the upcoming WC match against Carlsen if he got such a request:

"Honeslty I have no idea. I haven't thought of that at all. I have my own plans connected to rest... After such a tough competition and preparation which was tiresome, I want to recover. I definitely won't be available for any offers throughout the next two months and then we will see. If Vishy offers, I may think of that..."

In Kramnik's opinion the second world title match between Anand and Carlsen will differ from the first one:

"Firstly Vishy that we saw in Fall and Vishy who won the Candidates' are two different players. He has definitely overcome the drowsiness that messed up his play for the last several years. Secondly, despite a quite rough loss, he gained the experience he needed before the match in Chennai. It was clear that Anand was afraid to play, he was afraid of making mistakes and he was constantly rechecking himself.. Logically the challenger has to be nervous while playing the match, but in this case he was the one anxious. Now he just has nothing to lose, so Vishy will have a psychological initiative. This might help him to play better.

Look who's giving an expert opinion to Anand, the old aging LOSER Kramnik. Nakamura is a fit to be Anand second because he id way way more talented than all THE RUSSIAN PLAYERS.

To anon - 'old aging LOSER Kramnik ' etc. Most of us 'anons' are patzers,but any chess lover would give DUE RESPECT to the chess greats past & present. Remember Kramnik crushed Kasparov in their match! Of course we respect Nakamura too, he is a great and fearless player.

Trolling at its finest here. Kramnik was a former WC. Nakamura has nothing but a few good wins and hardly any classical tournament championships against 2700 players. Until he become number 1 or a world champion, you Naka fans need to tone it down a little

Anand will learn a lot from Nakamura, he should hire him as his second. He can also benefit from Naka's expertise in chess.

Totally agreed. Nakamura is the best teacher in chess. Anand will surely learn a lot from him. Nakamura can teach him with opennings and perfect end games technique.
