Topalov-Anand game 3

Aug 14, 2011, 9:54 AM |

With the first two games being decisive, there was expectations for game 3. Anand proved his mettle by outplaying Topalov positionally in game 2, a day after suffering a crushing defeat in game 1. The score was tied at 1-1, and there was a rest day before game 3.

The result of game 3 was a draw, as neither player erred. Notably, Anand was able to draw without bringing any of his pieces (until very near the end) into Topalov's half of the board. 3 games gone, the score is 1.5-1.5
