With four games to go, defending champion Anand will probably have one last chance in the ninth game to defend his title against challenger Carlsen.

With eight games gone, Anand is down but still not out. It`s a two-game deficit for the Indian ace and the ninth game would decide the course of the match as Anand plays white.

Carlsen has been the pick between the two and he appears completely relax with his 5-3 lead. It`s a now or never situation for Anand as he has just two white games left. A victory in the ninth game will reduce the deficit to just one point and can unsettle Carlsen who is playing his first serious match.
