World Championship: Anand Conserves Energy With Last White (Anand 5 1/2 : Topalov 5 1/2)

Round 11 saw an English Four Knights.  The game was well played and ended in a draw following some risk taking in the endgame by Anand.  Topalov must now play to win with his last White (or enter into the WC tiebreak system with greatly reduced time controls, where Anand almost surely has an advantage).  I'm going out on a limb and predicting 1.e4, with Topalov having prepared deeply for the Petroff.  Will Anand play into it?
