WCC2010_Game_8.jpgAfter recovering from his loss in the first game of the 2010 World Championship match, Anand seemed to have everything under control.

But Topalov re-asserted his challenge for the title in game 8 with a patient win in a difficult ending.  The momentum in the match now lies firmly back in the Bulgarian's camp.

With just four games to go, will the players go for broke or play safe as the agony of possible rapid tie-breaks approaches?

And will either player venture 1.e4? Wink

Game 9 starts at 12:00 GMT on 6 May and there will be live coverage at Chess.com TV, free to all members.
