I agree entirely. Anand has found a way to virtually guarantee a draw as black in this tournament against 1. d4. Unless Topalov can pull something surprising out of the bag he might have to consider other options.
Actually, Kramnik found that way to guarantee the draw
I agree, Topalov is strong with e4, but maybe he is afraid of a Petroff from Anand (although Anand is more a Ruy/Sicilian player)?
And if you look at his games, Topalov is not an e4 player, he plays d4 more often.
