After three games of the World Chess Championship, Vishy Anand and Boris Gelfand are tied. (If they are still even after twelve matches, there is a tie break.)
I guess Boris will be the happier of the two players; he has shown that he is up to the challenge of competing at this lofty level, withstood two games as black, and is level on points. And, although Boris was in real danger of losing in the last game, he held his nerve and passed that most serious test of his resolve.
In short, all to play for!
|1||Anand||Gelfand||Gruenfeld||½ – ½|
|2||Gelfand||Anand||Semi-Slav||½ – ½|
|3||Anand||Gelfand||Neo-Gruenfeld||½ – ½|
