Topalov-Anand a 23-move draw, albeit one with a diverting liquidation finish. Anand used 17 minutes. Topalov maintains his half-point lead. In tomorrow's final round Anand has white against Gelfand and Topalov has black against Leko. For the sake of keeping it interesting let's hope Leko pushes to get himself to a plus score and reclaim some street cred by beating the champ.
Anand and Gelfand have a long history. The Israeli GM used to give Anand fits when he was first entering the elite. I believe the quote by Vishy after another loss, in the 1993 Interzonal was "I hate losing, but I really hate losing to him!" The score used to be +4 for Gelfand, but of course Anand went on to become Anand and has long since more than evened the score. I don't think Gelfand has beaten him since that game.
Kamsky wins again! As I mentioned in my ChessBase notes yesterday, despite the steep number of atrocious losses, only Topalov and Anand have more wins than Kamsky! Karjakin also has four. That's really an amazing stat. He barely survived the opening in most of his losses, but when he gets to a decent middlegame he's been lethal. Today he absorbed Mamedyarov's pawn sac and consolidated impressively to extract the point. Put it this way, Kamsky has as many wins as Sokolov, Mamedyarov, Tiviakov, Bacrot, and Aronian combined. Of course not losing is perhaps greatest the test of top-level chess today (which is why it can be so boring). But winning a game at this level is simply not easy. Once Kamsky gets his openings in shape, watch out.
It should be noted that since he's obviously rusty everyone is trying to beat him, which in turn can make the games sharper and give him more winning chances. But four is four.
