May-05-03  man9589: I am a amature to post comment on a G.M's games but I still try to do it. Adams could have tried to take pawn on b4 with his Bishop. But still the game was in Anand's hand.
Jul-17-03  kutuzov: I suppose Adams overlooked 16.Qd3
Dec-05-04  PinkPanther: What the hell was this?! Blindfold chess?

  wwall: Instead of 14...Nd5?, perhaps better is 14...Nb8.

After 19...Qxc2 20.Qxc2 Rxc2 21.Bb4 Bxb4 22.axb4 Rfc8 23.b5 and White remains a piece up.

Jul-11-06  pazmo7: isn't just a blunder.. not avoiding 15.b5.. ??

  gambitfan: A superb Panov Botvinnik Attack Miniature! (19 moves only)
Aug-17-08  seagull1756: I've managed to guess all Anand's moves in this game, so Adams simply had a bad day, I suppose...

  Eggman: Doesn't Black get the piece back after 18...Nb8?
Oct-29-08  you vs yourself: How about 19.Re3?

  Eggman: <<How about 19.Re3>> But of course!
Nov-17-16  Marmot PFL: Adams was very young (15 or 16) when this game was played, while Anand was almost 2 years older and already a GM and twice Indian champion.

20 years later and Adams STILL hasn't been Indian champion!
