Game 1: 1/2-1/2

Game 1 of the match was drawn with the World Champion having plenty of counter-play after being a pawn down. Vishy played Black and resorted to Exchange Slav.

Here is how it ended.

the game did move up to my expectations.....Anand seems to shy away from dynamism and active play..
am sure this is a ploy from Kramnik to size up Anands appetite for exciting sharp lines.
l forse Kramnik unleashing terror in subsequent games....the guy has a well loaded snipper riffle
