WCC: Seventh game drawn in 37 moves

Posted by 365Chess.com on October 23, 2008 in Chess news

Anand payed 1.d4 and Kramink played a semi-slav again. Did we see this before? And as happened before Anand had got a clear advantage, but agreed to drawn.

WCC: Anand unstoppable

Posted by 365Chess.com on October 23, 2008 in Chess news

After six rounds Anand’s advantage seems too much for Kramnik. The actual World Champion played an interesting novelty in the Nimzoindian defense chosen by Kramnik and won with white pieces a sharp endgame.

Now the score is 4.5 : 1.5 and nothing seems to revert this situation.
