Anand-Topalov Game 4

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Wow, wow, wow! What more can you say? I guess my prediction of a continued exciting match after yesterday’s draw was spot on.

Anand has pulled ahead with a beautiful sacrificial attack. A short game that would have been shorter had Topalov opted to give proper respect by resigning around move 27.

BTW, GM Miguel Illescas’ live commentary of this game was superb!

Excellent news. Anand has struck back with aplomb like the champion he is! And tomorrow is a rest day, so things are looking good. :)

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!
