    Good point Trysts Smile

    But here's another thing I am always amazed by. Timman found 26 ... g6 obvious, and clearly so did Anand! I must be blind Cool

    From their games till now it is obviously that they are not willing to take risks.12 games are very few.One win may give a decisive advantage to the winner.

    What does NIIT on Anand's t-shirt stand for? Some institute of technology in India?

    Houdini's first line is draw by perpetual check. It is a very calm game compared to the last one.

    Forth Game               

    In this one Anand's Scottishness has been recognised & the game honourably named after the '''Firth of Forth'', Scotland !

    Quite obvious that the last thing Gelfand wants is a draw ...

    There's a tie break? I thought 6-6 and the current champ kept his title.

    Is it considered improper in this situation for Anand to offer a draw? Should he wait for Boris do so instead?

    Yep. Tie-breaks if necessary.

    Anand is very well prepared in Slav.Gelfand should change his strategy or unleash a well -prepared novelty if he wants to have some chance for a win with white.

    Darn, again. The moves that the GMs find obvious, like Black's last two moves of b6 and Rd6. Not obvious to me at all. Obvious only after I hear the explanation. Tongue out

    He sure does. He looks almost annoyed.

    Well, I definitely prefer Aronian to Kramnik, Anand or Gelfand.
