MOSCOW: One day after a devastating loss that left him trailing in the World chess championship for the first time, Vladimir Kramnik struck back on Sunday by beating Veselin Topalov in Game 10.
The best-of-12 match is now tied 5-5.
If the match which is being played in Elista, the capital of Kalmykia, a Russian republic on the Caspian Sea should remain tied after 12 games, the players would play four fast games to break the deadlock.
Game 11 is set for Tuesday. AP
