The recently completed World Chess Championship was a close and exciting match … well, as exciting as it gets in the world of chess, anyhow. World number 1 player Viswanathan Anand defeated challenger and world number 2 player Veselin Topalov by a hair’s breadth.

As you may recall, Anand nearly arrived late, having been grounded by Iceland’s volcano. And then Topalov refused to talk to him during the match. And then Topalov jumped into the lead by winning the first game.

Anand won the second and fourth games, and Topalov evened it out by winning game eight. It remained a stalemate until the final, just completed game, which Anand won. You can see the final game (and all the games) here.
