Premium Chessgames Member Well, the Topalov-Van Wely game was a draw. We're now switching to Short-Anand already in progress... enjoy.

Jan-17-05  radu stancu: Ugh, I'm afraid this is going to be a draw also...
Jan-17-05  Knight13: Grandmaster games are not won easy.
Jan-17-05  acirce: <> Well thanks for that ;-)
Premium Chessgames Member Wouldn't you know it, this game is drawn too...
Jan-17-05  acirce: I would suggest Leko-Svidler if you want to make a new try
Jan-17-05  Knight13: I wish this Game is not going to be Draw because 90% of Live Games I've watched at ended in a draw.
Jan-17-05  radu stancu: LOL!

  AdrianP: Nosher will be quite happy with that, I suspect. But I think he'll be trying hard for a win against Moro tomorrow, apparently with the white pieces again.
Jan-17-05  Valiantangel: Its pretty strange that Anand played h5 in the classical caro.I have long been told that its a weak move because of the weak g5 square.The knight can land there and haress black.Perhaps that why he did not castle.Pretty interesting! i need to look into this game and others in this lighe in depth
