2012 WCC Anand v Gelfand round 6

Gelfand diverged from previous games with 6.Qc2. Anand gambits a pawn with 9...O-O. Gelfand returns the pawn almost immediately to unwind his queenside, and we are left with another symmetric pawn game with many pieces exchanged. Before move 20 there is a little tension in that the darksquare bishops are pointing at the opposing kingside, but they are also covering entry points for the heavy pieces. I expect things will peter out again.

draw after move 29.
