and Magnus Carlsen are all set to clash for the World Chess Championship starting Saturday The return match held in the Russian resort town of Sochi will see Anand aiming to wrest back the crown he lost last year in Chennai Just days earlier legend Garry Kasparov had hinted darkly that Anand may be in cahoots with Russian intelligence to “destabilise” his protégé Carlsen In an interview he said that the democracy-hating Russkies might nobble the incumbent champion The image of Anand confabulating with trenchcoated KGB agents over a plate of thayir sadam is certainly evocative While it may have sent ripples amongst the more credulous Twitteratti long-time watchers of the scene know that this is standard operating procedure Boxing has its storied tradition of “weigh-ins” where the contestants and their supporters trash talk if not brawl Chess championships too have their equivalent when the two gladiators and their representatives in the run-up to the match fire verbal salvoes at each other Kasparov was Carlsen’s coach and still considers himself a mentor to the Norwegian His statements are part of the put-downs faint praise and veiled threats that fans have come to accept Why is all this so important Chess is a game of perfect information You see all your opponent’s pieces on the board and so does she The mindgames are an attempt to inject what strategist Clausewitz called the “fog of war” Each of the duellists wants to insert an element of uncertainty in the enemy’s mind that can paralyse decision-making “Lies and hypocrisy do not survive for long on the chessboard The creative combination lays bare the presumption of a lie while the merciless fact culminating in a checkmate contradicts the hypocrite” said the great Emanuel Lasker He was world champ for 27 years and certainly knew what he was talking about Grandmasters crave this certainty this attempt to impose order in a chaotic world by reducing it to 64 squares Shake this certainty and you might just have that extra ammo in a gun battle Carlsen is a master at this agenda-setting this brinkmanship as popularised by Henry Kissinger Prior to the match in Chennai he demanded that there should be a sickness clause which would enable him to take a two-day break whenever he wanted in the middle of the match Why Because of the possibility that his Norwegian constitution may collapse due to eating spicy Indian food As Anand was an Indian and presumably used to the fare this clause would expressly not be allowed for him Again in the run-up to Sochi he refused to sign the contract agreeing to do only at the last minute after the global chess federation called his bluff and threatened to replace him Carlsen showed his shrewd understanding of what makes a chess player tick Grandmasters are used to strict objective rules governing the play Undermine this by arbitrarily trying to tweak the rules around the conduct of the match and you’ve won an important point Of course the lead-up to the match is like water unto wine moonlight unto sunlight compared to what happens when the first pawns are pushed in anger There have been world championship matches since 1886 — and there have been shenanigans too Fischer’s antics against Spassky in their celebrated encounter in Reykjavik are well known The match between Viktor Korchnoi and Anatoly Karpov in 1977 however was the perfect storm the “how to” of psychological operations Korchnoi was a defector while Karpov was the darling of the Soviet establishment Their styles of play — Korchnoi was fiery and mercurial while Karpov was cold-blooded and calculating — also reflected their temperaments The very first battle was over the flags — what would Korchnoi play under The Soviets wanted him to play under a white flag bearing “Stateless” while Korchnoi counter-offered to play under the Soviet flag with “I’ve Escaped” printed on it As the match progressed the two men’s bitter antipathy swelled over into almost every conceivable sphere Just to give you a taste ructions erupted when Karpov demanded and was served yoghurt during a game Korchnoi sent a furious letter to the organisers stating: “It is clear that a cunningly arranged distribution of edible items to one player during the game could convey a kind of code message” A commission was appointed to investigate and it was decreed that only the violet-coloured yogurt could be served Anand of course is famous for his ever-courteous demeanour But perhaps the very fact that Vishy doesn’t use mindgames is itself a statement of his confidence
