  plang: Played in the 7th round; in the 5th round Kramnik had played 16..Ra7 against Svidler and had drawn. Note that 16..Ne7? (which has been played in several games) loses a pawn to 17 Nxe7+..Qxe7 18 Bxf5! or 18 Nxe5!. After Anand's 19 Nfd5 (new) 19..f4 no longer works due to 20 Ng4..Bg6 21 Re1 with pressure on the e-pawn. After interesting complications the game ended in a draw. Anand gave 29 Nb4..Bg6 30 Qxe5..Qxh4 31 Nd5 with compensation for the pawn.
