Topalov Ties It Up

After holding Anand to two consecutive draws with the black pieces — the second being a real slugfest with a piece sac and all — Topalov slowly ground out the win in Tuesday’s game as white. Anand had just about proved the opposite colored bishop endgame a draw before blundering as Topalov made his final attempt at the full point. Here are those two games, the seventh and eighth. Only four remain in the now-tied match. It’s going to be a sprint to the finish. (Sure wish there wasn’t a game on Mother’s Day though! Probably have to miss the live action on the ICC on Sunday.)
