World Chess Championship Match: First game, first blood: Vishy Anand – Veselin Topalov 0:1

FIDEYesterday it was the day D. The long-time awaited match between the current world champion Vishy Anand and his challenger Veselin Topalov started in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The first game was very attractive. Topalov sacrified a pawn for initiative. And later even knight. It seems that Anand’s first own move (out of his home prepration) was 23…. Kf7 and after this move Topalov’s attack just became unstoppable. Topalov won the game in a great style!

The second game will be played today at 12.00 of UTC time. Will Anand stike back in his first game as white?
