Yes, a theoretically important blindfold game, how is *that* for an oxymoron?


<It was a brilliant, theoretically important game, that drew applause from the other grandmasters at the tournament. And it was played without looking at the board. Vishy Anand played this decisive game against Veselin Topalov, ane in their rapid chess game Anand equalised quickly with black to clinch overall victory at the 12th Amber Chess Tournament in Monaco.>
