Anand-Gelfand 2012: The World Awaits Game 12

May 28, 2012

All eyes are on Moscow as Viswanathan Anand and Boris Gelfand prepare to do battle one last time in this match at classical time controls. With the match tied at 5.5 a piece, Boris Gelfand has managed to silence his critics and stun the current World Champion Viswanathan Anand. For Anand, the comparisons between this match and his World Championship match against Topalov must be very appealing. It was in game 12 of the 2010 FIDE World Chess Championship that Anand was able to win as black and retain his title as World Chess Champion. The question on everyone’s mind’s is “will he do the same against Boris Gelfand?” Can Viswanathan Anand summon his chess super powers one last time to defeat Boris Gelfand and become the win the FIDE World Championship match of 2012?

As was the case for all the other games of this match, I will be providing in-depth analysis of Anand-Gelfand 2012 game 12 on this site. If you can’t wait for my analysis, I suggest that you watch the live streaming broadcast of game 12 of the 2012 World Chess Championship here.
