For me, each game is a new challenge, which has to be dealt with rationally
and systematically. At that time, every other thought fades into oblivion.


I keep forcing, I keep learning new things in the game,
and so far I have been taking challenges as they come.


I attend to my fitness. I go the gym every day and try to maintain
my physical fitness; without that, it is tough to take challenges on the chess board.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Championships

When I started out playing chess as a kid I thought I should be world champion. As a kid you have no idea what that means and you only sort of picture it. It is hard to imagine that I waited all those years and it happened in a late stage of my career.


Carlsen will be ridiculously difficult to play against. (on the 2013 World Championship match)


I think the draw quotient has always been high in world championship matches because the amount of effort people put into neutralizing each other’s openings. It’s just now with computers that it has reached a new level.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Chess

We want more women players to take up chess.
There are few participants at the national level and hope it will grow.


I would prefer chess to become part of the Olympic Games.
This would also lead to chess become more accepted as a sport in general.


Before a match, I do not follow any chess news except the games.


Intuition in chess can be defined as the first move that comes to mind when you see a position.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Computers

I think the draw quotient has always been high in world championship matches because the amount of effort people put into neutralizing each other’s openings. It’s just now with computers that it has reached a new level.


For every door the computers have closed they have opened a new one.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Country

I was very lucky that while I was a chess player in a country where chess was not a big deal,
I happened to be in the one city where there was a sprouting chess team: Chennai.


In a way players at the top should try to promote the game in their own countries as that is
the legacy that makes you feel proud. If you have not done that you have failed as a sportsperson.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Focus

My job is to play chess, the game that I love. I achieve what I can in chess. That is what
I focus on. Basically, I am always focused on playing the game, and this is important to me.


When you play with the best in the world, it is important that you not lose focus.
You must be fully focused. Even a minor error could result in a massive defeat.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about School

I would never suggest to anyone that they drop school for chess. First of
all even if you can make it in chess, your social skills need to be developed there.

Thoughts by Viswanathan Anand about Sports

I feel that schools and corporates should help the government in popularising
sports in the country. Blaming the government for every sporting debacle will not be fair.


There are two aspects to being competitive; one is to do with sports, and the other is about
technical skills. Being able to recollect the moves and apply them when necessary is a critical aspect.


I would prefer chess to become part of the Olympic Games.
This would also lead to chess become more accepted as a sport in general.


Chess as a sport requires a lot of mental stamina, and this is what that makes it different from a physical sport. Chess players have a unique ability of taking in a lot of information and remembering relevant bits. So, memory and mental stamina are the key attributes.
