Carlsen admitted after the game that his rival had been prepared better, while five-time world champion Anand said that he was pleased with his moves in the latest clash. He expressed hope that he would be able to take the lead during the remaining three games. Game 10 is scheduled for November 21.
Russian Grand Master Pyotr Svidler said commenting on the game, "Magnus Carlsen has almost reached his goal... Therefore, he doesn't want to spend about seven hours by the chessboard."
Svidler said that Game 10 will be crucial for the match.
"It will be the most important game for Anand. He has nowhere to retreat. He has to advance," he said.
