World Championship: Back to Gruenfeld in Round 10 (Anand 5 : Topalov 5)

Anand goes back to the Gruenfeld and the game enters into rare variations after 10...b6 and 11.Qd2.  Topalov undoubtedly sought to take the game onto less trodden ground.  11.Qd2 maintains tension in the position, as pressure increases onTopalov to win one more game.  Anand releases the tension in the game with the novelty 13...cxd4, and the game drifts to a draw.
