Kramnik-Anand: Round 10


Going into round 10, Kramnik needed a win against Anand to give himself a shot at winning. With 5 rounds left, he and Gelfand trailed by 1.5 points, and Anand was going to have to meet each of them with the Black pieces. A final exam for a potential champion!




When an irresistible force meets an immovable object...

4 rounds remained, and Gelfand had a matchup with Anand scheduled for the 12th round...a Gelfand win there would throw things into chaos, so Anand looked for something special in round 11....

Anand 6.5
Gelfand 5.5
Kramnik 5.0
Leko 5.0
Aronian 5.0
Grischuk 4.5
Morozevich 4.5
Svidler 4.0
