Anand has played 1.e4 in all our recent encounters. Today we played the Ruy Lopez Breyer as in Kristiansund and Bilbao earlier this autumn. I chose a variation giving white a small advantage but black is solid and ready to equalize if the position opens up. Anand made various attempt without making significant progress. After I got in d5 it is equal and Anand chose to liquidate most pieces to reach a drawn opposite colored bishop ending.
The other games had more nerve. Both Wang Yue and Topalov had good winning chances but failed to capitalize.
Consequently I.m still in the lead as the only player with a win so far.
