2012 WCC Anand v Gelfand round 4

Game 4 was another 5...a6 Slav like game 2. Anand diverged from game 2 with 12...exd4

After Anand's 21....Rxd5, the position had a symmetric pawn structure with Gelfand having the two bishop and a slight initiative.

After a series of exchanges in the 20s the game settled into a fairly dry equal endgame with Anand's 29...b6. Even if Gelfand manages to exchange rooks and gain a BvN endgame with pawns on both sides of the board, Anand should have no problem putting most of his pawns on dark squares and centralizing his king.

Game was drawn after move 34. Not very interesting.
