The championshionship takes off

The first two rounds have already been played between Carlsen and Anand in the World Chess Championship 2013 - both leading to draws. I suppose none of the two gentlemen want to take too big chances in the start, and prefer to play it safe. I hope they show a little more teeth next week though. After all, this is what makes chess interesting to watch.

I'll leave you with the endgame from the second round. What do you think? Could this game have been won by either of the two players?

(Round 2 played November 10, 2013)
