After getting crushed on the Black side of the Grunfeld in game one,
Anand evened the World Championship score in round two with a nice Catalan endgame win over his challenger.



GM Ian Rogers, who will file a blog for CLO in the coming week, reported from the press room in Sofia: "Topalov was unable to pinpoint his error. 'At some point I started making mistakes' but Anand felt that after 25...Ne3?! the game started to slip away for Black. 'I wasn't even sure if 26.Rxd4 was a real threat,' he said."
