Anand - Topalov Webliography

Last week, Viswanathan Anand won the final game of the World Chess Championship against Veselin Topalov in Sofia, Romania, to retain his title.  The games in this championship were not error free, but they were always exciting and have rightly received a lot of commentary.  I have compiled links to annotations of all 12 games.  I will be adding more links in the coming days and welcome additions from readers.

Game One

Game Two
Anand - Topalov, Catalan (E04), 1-0

Game Three
Topalov - Anand, Slav (D17), 1/2-1/2

Game Four
Anand - Topalov, Catalan (E04), 1-0

Game Five
Topalov - Anand, Slav (D17), 1/2-1/2

Game Six
Anand - Topalov, Catalan (E04), 1/2-1/2

Game Seven
Anand - Topalov, Bogo-Indian (E00), 1/2-1/2

Game Eight

Game Nine
Anand - Topalov, Nimzo-Indian Defense (E53), 1/2-1/2

Game Ten

Game Eleven

Game Twelve
Topalov - Anand, Queen's Gambit Declined, Lasker Defense (D56), 0-1

The last game was most interesting to me as it may well revive interest in my favorite Lasker's Defense to the Queen's Gambit Declined.

Other commentary can be found at the official Anand - Topalov website, Convekta, as well as on ICC and (both of which require subscription).
