rel=”nofollow”> |

FIDE Master Dennis Monokroussos guides us through a key game in the World Championship Match! Anand switched to 1.d4 and quickly entered a Catalan System and Topalov played the main Line 4…dxc4. Dennis explains the key concepts of The Catalan and explains Black’s fundamental approaches to White’s plan.

Topalov attempts to hang on to his …dxc4 Pawn which allows White a lot of activity and the middlegame battle commences. Anand finds an ‘Over The Board Idea’ way to exchange Queens and keep an edge by exploiting the weakened Black Queen side squares and goes on to record a very good victory.
