In Moscow, the sixth game of the World Championship Match between Boris Gelfand and Viswanathan Anand has ended as a draw.

The Slav Defence was played. On the move fourteen the World Champion, who was Black, used a new move: he sacrificed a pawn, counting on compensation sufficient for an equality. Gelfand decided to return the pawn with his move 18, satisfied with a microscopic advantage in the position. Anand was precise in his defence, made several exchanges and equalised. After Black's move 29 the peace was agreed.

The opponents are going for another free day with the score 3-3.
