Indian ace Vishwanathan Anand is taking on Vladimir Kramnik of Russia in the second game of the World Chess Championship on Wednesday.

Anand made an impressive start to the 12 game campaign as he held the Russian to a draw in the opening round.

The game was by no means an aggressive one as both sides preferred to wait and watch in the Queen's Gambit Slav Exchange Variation. The title carries a prize money of 1.5 million Euros to be divided equally between the two finalists regardless of who wins.
