Another exciting draw

Game 4 of the 2013 World Championship ended in another exciting draw, although this time it was Anand who had to hang on. Once again the key moment occurred just before the first time control, when Carlsen had the chance cement an advantage, but only if he spotted all the tactics after 36. ... Rd8. After that Anand was able to generate enough counterplay to win back a pawn, but he still needed to find the best moves to halve the game. Fittingly the game was drawn on move 64.
