Not all.

first, again weird choice by Anand. 1st game he went for a quite quiet Grunfeld variation that led to more opportunities for black rather than white, yesterday in game 2 I was surprised twice during 1st 2 moves, Carlsen playing 1.e4 in his first white game (I was definitely expecting 1. Nh3 or 1. c4) and even more surprised Anand went for 1. e5 instead of a sharp Sicilian for example.

You were expecting 1. Nh3?

Carlsen's openings aren't normally that crazy!

Sorry, 1. Nf3 obviously.

To be honest, I can't see Carlsen using 1. Nf3 anymore. He hasn't played it vs. Anand since round 1, last year -- and it ended in a fairly quick draw. I think he's figured out that he can use 1. d4 and 1. e4 fairly comfortably against Anand, and with better results...
