Quick Update

Gelfand - Anand (Game 4, WCN 2012). After 17. Nxd4

Currently, the world championship match is tied, 2:2 -- four draws. The third game, in particular, was quite dramatic. This is not the place for extensive commentary on the world championship, but just a note that this really is a "first" in Israeli chess history. Ha'aretz -- in a atypical move -- covers the match on its front cover (though at the bottom of the page). A curious position -- to non-players, at least -- occurred after the 17th move. The d-file is completely occupied.
