Playing slav

Two awesome games with Anand playing black: third and then the fifth. Makes you forgive the very forgettable first. Admittedly, I am so out of touch that I spent an hour studying the final position of the third game before I could figure why Kramnik resigned instead of looking for a draw. To my pathetic defense, the fritz fairy was not summoned. Yet, in spite of the flaking rust, such fun!

My unqualified prediction for the sixth game: a draw.
