Post your thoughts on the World championship match here!
Anand ended up winning 6.5 - 5.5 after Topalov made a horrible blunder in an otherwise exciting position.
My thoughts : I thought Anand was going to be rusty since he seemed pretty inactive these past few months. Considering this and the fact that the match was on Topalov's soil, I thought the Bulgarian was going to take the match, but boy was I wrong! Anand is CLEARLY the better player. Topa might have more fight in him, but in the end, the better chess player won, no doubt. I also found that a rather impressive amount of mistakes were made during this match. I actually think this is good for chess, it really shows how it isn't dead yet, and that the psychological aspect is huge in a WC match. I wonder how a skilled Carlsen would fare vs an experienced Anand in such a situation?
