Anand-Topalov Game 1

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

After a one-day delay due to Anand’s travel woes caused by the volcano in Iceland, the 2010 World Chess Championship is underway! It was a brutal affair with Veselin Topalov absolutely blasting Viswanathan Anand off the board with the white pieces when the latter misplayed a seemingly risky Gruenfeld line after a succession of quick moves by both sides.

Serious chess. Serious fun!
