Kramnik - Anand Round 5 World Chess Championship Anand WON Again With Black

I'm sure Kramnik would like to forget his disastrous lost playing white from the Round 3 to Anand. It would be interesting to see again how Kramnik going to cope against Anand playing Black.

White = Kramnik

Black = Anand

Here again Kramnik played 1. d4 against Anand. Looks like he's trying to play the man instead the board. Anand replied with Semi-Slav: Meran System: Main Line with 9. e4 c5 10. e5 cxd4 11. Nxb5 (d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 dxc4 7. Bxc4 b5 8. Bd3 a6 9. e4 c5 10. e5 cxd4 11. Nxb5) image

axb5 12. exf6 gxf6 13. O-O Qb6 14. Qe2 Bb7 15. Bxb5 Rg8 This position brings the similarity of the Round 3 which Kramnik lost the game & blundered. image

16. Bf4 Bd6 17. Bg3 f5 18. Rfc1 According to Hiarcs, Kramnik should play 18.Rfd1 f4 19.Bh4 Bd5 20.b3 Qb7 21.Bxd7+ Kxd7 22.Rxd4 Bxf3 which gave him slight advantage over Anand.

f4 19. Bh4 Be7 20. a4 Bxh4 21. Nxh4 Ke7 22. Ra3 Rac8 23. Rxc8 Rxc8 24. Ra1 Qc5 25. Qg4 Qe5 26. Nf3 Qf6 27. Re1 Rc5 28. b4 Rc3  29. Nxd4 was a weak move played by Kramnik which instantly gave Anand advantages in the endgame. Kramnik should play 29.Nd2 h6 30.Bxd7 Kxd7 31.a5 Ke7 according to Hiarcs.

Qxd4 30. Rd1 Nf6 31. Rxd4 Nxg4 32. Rd7+ Kf6 33. Rxb7 Rc1+ 34. Bf1 Ne3 35. fxe3 fxe3 0-1
