Norway Chess Super Tournament 2013 Round 3: The Viswanathan Anand – Veselin Topalov game was a dynamic clash where the World Chess Champion played an inspired game. The game brought back memories of when Anand had beaten Topalov in Sofia, Bulgaria in 2010 to take the world title. Anand’s cool 32.Qh1! helped set up a great White win.
