A great start for Anand at M-Tel Masters

Anand beats Topalov in a quiet and precise anti-Marshall which suddenly exploded in the middle game. He is just one ELO point behind Topalov. With a great start at M-Tel Masters with two wins with black in the first two rounds, he has a very good chance of becoming the number one player in the world for the first time in his incredible career. Next game is with Kamsky who has been inconsistent since he woke up from his med-school induced chess hibernation.
