It is almost over. Anand needs one draw in 3 games to become the next world champion. Even if he loses all three, the match just goes to rapid game tiebreaker.

But Anand was lucky today! He was at a serious disadvantage for most of the game. Surprisingly for him, he was also in time trouble. He had to make nearly 20 moves in the last 30 minutes.

Kudos to Kramnik for fighting, even though the match situation appears hopeless.
