World Chess Championship game 3: draw

The third game of the Anand-Carlsen match is complete, and again it is a draw.

This game was not a quick draw, though: it was played all the way through to the endgame, when both players had only a king and a bishop remaining.

The game was very exciting in the middle, with combinations across the board. Late in the middle of the game, Anand was ahead by a pawn, but Carlsen's pawns were connected, while Anand's extra pawn was disconnected and weaker, and Carlsen won the pawn back and then the game was over.

After three games, the score is: 1.5 - 1.5.

What will game 4 bring?
