(GotD) Topalov vs. Anand, Amber Blindfold 2005, [E34] Nimzo-Indian classical, Noa var.

Game #5 in the World Championship occurs tomorrow (Friday, April 30, 2010). In the meantime, here's a game both Anand and Topalov played in March, 2005. I went thru my games database (currently at 1,735,719 games) to see if they've played the Catalan opening before (Anand's played this opening in games 2 and 4 so far), but oddly enough they've never played such a game?!? So I chose a game which uses the Nimzo-Indian (1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. Qc2 d5) Enjoy...
