Viswanathan Anand Won the Last Game and the World Chess Championship Match!

FIDEWhat a fantastic show we saw in Sofia yesterday! Vishy Anand and Veselin Topalov played great and exciting match with a super-hyped finale!

The score was 5,5:5,5 after 11 games. Which meant that the winner of the last game would take everything – the match and the crown for chess king. I cannot imagine how big pressure both players had to experience.

Topalov had white pieces and he started as usual in this match 1.d4. Anand’s choice of opening system was a small surprise – he played Queen’s Gambit for the first time (and last time) in the match.

The game was balanced and safe for a long time.

Later on black played a bit active move 30…. f5. Unfortunately for Topalov, white’s two next moves were not good and he went under a pressure on the board. White’s position ruined quickly and it was only a matter of time when Topalov resignes. He did it in 56th move. It meant the only one thing – Vishy Anand defended the title of the Chess World Champion!

Congratulations on it!

And thanks both players for fantastic match!

    Very good chess,a cliff hanger to the end.
    Perhaps this is the way forward for world championships,
    short matches,means attacking play.
    Well play both players,way to go Anand.
    Now prepare for Carlsen.
