Anand - "I didn't see the hammer blow!"

Funny post-game analysis between Anand and Hammer after their R8 match in the Norway Chess tournament.


"Jon (Hammer) seems to have pretty much assumed that I blundered the pawn (h4...Qxh4)" - Anand
"Yeah I mean he already started this intimidation on twitter ...thought it was getting a bit worrying" -Anand

At one point while analyzing a possible mate, Anand says (tongue in cheek) "I didnt see the hammer blow"

No love lost between India and Norway!
