Chess World championship: India’s Anand leads
World champion Viswanathan Anand scored his second victory with black against Vladimir Kramnik of Russia in the fifth game of the world championship extending his lead to two points.
It was again the Slav variation by the Indian ace and Kramnik went for what he had chosen in the third game, giving an idea that he had prepared something against the variation.
If Kramnik thought he was going to deviate from the earlier game, he was proven wrong as on the 15th move Anand came up with a new idea.
Anand leads 3.5 to 1.5 against Anand in the 12 match World championship.
