After lot of imbalance, exchanges, game was poised to conclude middle game with position as –
White is a clear pawn up & has 2 passed pawns! Seems a very promising position on the board while we enter an endgame where black might have to defend to get a draw… Not Really!
In this position, Anand gave a check with Rc1 & Kramnik had an only move to play which was Bf1 to prevent check!
Kramnik was forced to capture it with pawn and in reply Anand recaptured with his pawn. Now, there is no way bishop can come out to stop the pawn on e3 from queening… Two of white’s passed pawns are mere spectators!
So, after this move Kramnik was forced to resign. A dramatic end to the game! Perhaps the game ended pre-maturely!

I would like to give Kapil Sir 9.5 out of 10 as He says "There is always room for improvement!"
