As was to be expected a very soild line by Anand, the Lasker variation is one of the most solid responses against d4. I think Anand knows hes better at rapid (and especially blitz) and want to beat Topalov in the tie-break.

I dont like Rf2 from Topalov, I think Anand is just equal now, he has a clear plan for all his pieces while I dont know what Topalov wants now...
