I made a comment on Susan Polgar's blog that I wish that game five will actually be played rather than be a forfeit win for Topalov. Like many fans, I am having trouble with the less-than-professional behavior. Over the last couple days I have rooted less for Topalov, although I admire his games.
With that stated, the seventh game was actually a pretty good game. They both played well and although Kramnik was a pawn up at the conclusion, he could not convert that to an advantage and the game ended in a draw.
I am now a bit heartened that they played serious chess rather than mind games with each other!
