Draw
Agreed....The 12th game will be played very carefully and the tiebreaks are knocking on the door....I fear the worst for Anand,Topalov is a tiebreaker,a classic one,it will be difficult to outplay him....

Anand is like 100-150 ELO stringer than Topa in rapid. IMO Topa either wins tomorrow or Anand is the favorite.
Yeah,I agree,but the digits are a little bit overestimated....anyway,we'll see....

I am going to have to take Wael's side on this one. Yes, history has show Anand to be one of the very best Speed players around, But in this match Anand has also blown chance after chance to put this guy down. I feel upset in favor of Topalov in the playoff if there is one in this match. I think chances are good for a Topalov win in game 12. :wink:

Thanks for the posts on the games Ted. Much appreciated.

Anand will win the match :) When he pulled the game over
to the King side in the 11 game taking a win from Topalov
showed me something.

Best,
Gerold.

Hi Gerold,

I hope so, but I do feel the tide is turning ... :lol:
