Game 2: 1/2-1/2

Whew. It was a wonderful game. Both the giants (as Levon Aronian called them) played well. But Vishy definitely surprised his opponent (who am I to say he surprised Kramnik, I can't read his mind ;)) by playing 4 ... f3. It was rather atypical that it was Anand who had less time left on the clock -- but hey, it is the World Chess Championship where they play classical time control!

It was very tense during the game as it progressed:

Move 8:

Move 14:

The draw agreed:
