Ironically it was the other way around. Obi-wan was holding back, he didn't want to kill the man he loved, the man he spent half his life with. He had the chance to kill Anakin 2-3 times and he didn't.
The Dark Side was giving him power, but he was so overwhelmed with the emotions and lack of control, he could never have killed Obi-Wan in that duel.

Also, the RotS novel also states Vader had chances of killing him to, it wasn't just a one way street, Obi-Wan wasn't holding back, Vader wasn't holding back, there were simply pauses, as in all duels, Vader was too arrogant, too uncontrollable, Obi-Wan had every advantage he needed to hold him off.

Just look at Anakin and Obi-Wan vs Dooku II, straight away, he dispatched Kenobi, at this point he was messing around, when Anakin changed forms(they were trying to trick Dooku into a false sense of security) to Djem-So, Dooku didn't stand a chance, he knew Anakin was the best Djem-So user, he knew all of his decades of training and mastery of Makashi, were no match.
