Today's game was full of mistakes. I'm sure it's got to be the pressure of playing such a serious match. Topalov had a prime opportunity to even up the match. On move 32, he could have been ahead with an evaluation of greater than +8. However, he plays a horrible move that evens the game.
Susan Polgar provides a good analysis of the game at her blog.
This game helps prove that chess is a bitch. Unless you love her and are willing to take risks and beatings, it is not the game for you! Be patient, and you will find beauty in this!
