World Chess Championship: Second Game: Draw

Your Ad Here

Viswanathan Anand surprised Vladimir Kramnik by going in with a Nimzo-Indian in the second game of the World Chess Championship on Wednesday that also ended in a draw. With this both games have ended in draws and in the third game Kramnik will hold white pieces.

Anand, playing with White, led with the Saemisch variation of the Nimzo-Indian Defense. His first move, 1. d4, was a minor surprise because he almost always leads with 1. e4 and it gave him a slight edge over Kramnik.

"At a certain point in the opening, the position became very sharp," Anand said.

Kramnik, of Russia, called the position "very complicated."

"Such a strange position is difficult to assess," he said.

Kramnik will have White in game three on Thursday.
