World Championship, Game 6, 21.10.2008

1.d4 Anand continue to play his new weapon . 1...Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.Qc2 d5 5.cxd5 Qxd5 6.Nf3 Qf5 7.Qb3 Nc6 8.Bd2 0–0 9.h3

probably a novelty. Fritz 11 opening book list 9.e3 9...b6 9.g4 consistent with his previous move. White will fiancheto his bishop on g2 later. 9...Qa5 11.Rc1 Bb7 12.a3 Bxc3 13.Bxc3 Qd5 14.Qxd5 Nxd5 15.Bd2 white keep his bishop pairs.
Both queen have been traded. White strategy probably is to try to exchange both rooks and open the position to give his bishop more scope.
