Gelfand – Anand, Game 6

Game 6 of the World Championship featured another 5…a6 Semi-Slav and another draw. Once again Vishwanathan Anand defended very well with an excellent pawn sacrifice on his 14th move. Lagging behind in development White was obliged to return the pawn and the game fizzled out to equality.

I still think the match could come to life with a win for either player. Right now they seem worried about losing one, and in a match of just 12 games that is very understandable.
