Can Viswanathan Anand bounce back from two stunning losses Yes he surely can. If Magnus Carlsen can win two out of six games so can Anand. However it is far easier said than done. In the span of about 24 hours the race for the World chess title looks different. With Carlsen delivering two punishing blows to send Anand reeling a premature end to the 12-game contest appears possible. Much like a heavyweight boxer sitting in his corner and reflecting on the battering received in the previous two rounds Anand now needs re-strategize his approach to the next six. He knows well that the last two rounds belonged to Carlsen who will be in a hurry to land the knockout punch. The Norwegian would have also anticipated a bruised Anand to throw punches like never before. One more mistake and Anand could well firmly be on the mat. As things stand now Anand has much to play for.
