Moscow: Indian Grandmaster Viswanathan Anand drew the 11th game against challenger Boris Gelfand of Israel as the World Chess Championship heads into a dramatic finish here on Saturday.
The 24-move draw in the penultimate game under the normal time control gives Anand a slight edge as he plays with white in the last game. Should the deadlock continue, the players will play tie-break games of shorter duration to determine the winner. The scores now stand at 5.5-5.5.
This was the third straight draw in the Championship after Anand scored the equaliser in game eight and now the Israeli will be hoping to get another draw and move to the tie-break stage.
