Anand-Topalov Game 3


Seems to me Anand equalized easily in this game. Topalov was true to his no draw proclamation, and it took more than the obligatory three-fold repetition at the end before the arbiter stepped in to offer the draw on his behalf. By the way, I was watching the live video feed closely during this final spectacle and didn’t see a handshake. Hmmm… interesting. Clearly, we’re in for a fighting World Chess Championship!

Check out that 14…Rg8 theoretical novelty (TN)!
