Theoretical Position: World Championship

Peter Svidler's analysis of the game in progress in the current World Chess Championship offers an interesting comic possibility. If Gelfand attempts to win Anand's h-pawn, things will go very badly for him.

A possible position:

White to move

1.Qxh5+ would be a blunder.

1...Kg7 2.Qe2 Rd8! 3.Qb2+ f6 and the threat of Rh8+ wins for Black
