THE JUDGMENT DAY
Today is the last game of Anand - Topalov encounter. With the score still tied after Game Eleven, Topalov will surely relish his advantage of playing the white pieces tonight. Anand lost Game Eight in cruel fashion when he could not coordinate his pieces well after the exchange of Queens. Even though it resulted in different coloured Bishops, the passed pawn on d6 tied Anand's Bishop to its defense. With the opponent's Bishop immobilized, Topalov pushed his pawns merrily without fear. Game Six, Game Seven, Game Nine and Game Ten all drawn, meaning whoever wins tonight's game will be the winner. If however the score still tied, the followers will surely see 'The lightning kid from Madras' again!
