Chess World Championship Match

Today was the first game of the World Championship Match between Veselin Topalov and Vladimir Kramnik. The game is now over and Kramnik wins after Topalov pushes too hard for a win in what looked like a drawn position. Topalov is arguably the best tournament player today but match play is quite different. Kramnik will be a tough nut to crack. The live games can be watch via a relay at FICS.
