Anand – Gelfand, Game 8

Vishwananthan Anand struck back immediately in game 8 with what must be the shortest decisive game ever in a World Championship. After an original opening it looks like Boris Gelfand missed something in playing his 14th move.

This is really a tragedy for Gelfand after his fine win in game 7. It will take considerable fortitude on his part to come back from such a blow and the emotional roller coaster that he must be experiencing right now.
