Drawn to Repetitions

Viswanathan Anand earned a draw with the Black pieces in game 5 of the 2010 world championship match against challenger Veselin Topalov, moving the score to 3:2 and retaining the champion's one point lead. Topalov opened with 1.d4 and the game progressed into a Slav a la game 3, not deviating until the move 11... Nbd7. Once again both sides elected not to castle and prepared for the endgame. A draw was agreed through the arbiter after 44.Rc3 foretold another looming repetition of position. Get the complete game score at the official match site.
