World Championship: ANAND!

Switching to a QGD, Anand undoubtedly went for the solid draw.  As one of the best speed players in history, he had to like his chances in the faster time controls.  Perhaps Topalov felt the same way.  He took unnecessary chances and Anand made him pay.  We're left with an admirable World Champion who's showed remarkable longevity and is the right Champion to pass the mantle to Carlsen.
