Anand-Gelfand 2012 World Chess Championship - Replay Game 10 Moves

Game 10 Result: 1/2-1/2
Match Score Anand-Gelfand: 5-5
 



All credit to Israel's Boris Gelfand the challenger - for holding down India's reigning world chess champion Viswanathan Anand in the tenth game today at the 2012 World Chess Championship. If Vishy had prepared a surprise by going 1.e4 and went for a Rossolimo Sicilian (3.Bb5), then Gelfand returned the favour by playing5....e5. There are only two games left now and then a tiebreak would be played on Wednesday (if required). If the score remains tied at 6-6 by Sunday, a rapid/blitz tiebreak will be played on Wednesday. Do tune in to the official website of the tournament on Saturday for Game 11 live broadcast (India time 4.15 pm). Boris Gelfand will have his last White on Saturday.

Today Edvard Radzinsky, the famous writer, historian and TV presenter, was the honorary guest of the match. The press conference was dedicated to the “Chess and Terror” theme. Radzinsky spoke about the unique chess set titled “Reformers Against Revolutioners”, which was created in commemoration of the tragic events of the second half of the XIX century, when tsar Alexander II was murdered by members of the People’s Freedom movement. Radzinsly dwelled not only on the chess set, which was a genuine masterpiece, but also on the controversial era in Russian history, when the government of Alexander II implemented radical reforms in the country’s economic and political system.

Three simuls were played in the chess courtyard. The 12th World Champion Anatoly Karpov, the Champion of Europe 2011 Vladimir Potkin and Grandmaster Vladimir Belov played against children.
