|May-21-03|| ||thesonicvision: this is just brilliant...i was lost after
Nd7. also, i have no idea how Vishy figured
out that mating combo with a queen sacrifice
6 moves in advance!
|May-21-03|| ||ughaibu: Thesonicvision: I take it you mean the 3rd Nd7? I wouldn't call this a combination, the lines aren't forced, it's a positional exchange. |
|Dec-23-04|| ||GreenDayGuy: So there's nothing white can do? Amazing. I guess
31. Qe3 fails to Bc5, pinning king and queen while
31. Qd3 fails to Rad8
32. Qc3 RXR# or
31. Qd3 Rad8
32. QXR Nh3#
This game should be under one of Anand's most notable games.
|May-06-05|| ||Milo: If I make a "defend to victory" collection, this'll be in it...|
|Sep-18-06|| ||dramas79: What abt. 31. Rd3? At least it avoids immediate mate/loss of queen.|
|Mar-13-07|| ||Rama: I wonder if this was played at V.K. Mills, Palni, where I happened to meet him. He was just a kid, we played a 5-minute game.|
|Mar-14-07|| ||syracrophy: <dramas79> After 31.♖d3 ♗c5+! 32.♗d4 ♘f3+! is crushing. White has to lose the ♕ or has to lose a lot of material.|
|Aug-28-07|| ||Mateo: <GreenDayGuy> 31.Qd3 fails to 31...Bc5+ 32.Bd4 Bxd4+ 33.Qxd4 Nh3 mate.|
<dramas79: What abt. 31. Rd3?> <syracrophy: <dramas79> After 31.Rd3 Bc5+! 32.Bd4 Nf3+! is crushing.> I prefer 32...Bxd4+ leading to mate...
|May-14-10|| ||syntax007: what abt Qd4|
|Apr-17-11|| ||harish22: i would call this is a very good positional sac considering that all the black pieces except one are beyond the second rank. Every piece requires one move to get into the killing position. Bc8-b7, Nd7- e5, Re8 - f8, Be7 - c5. White's exposed king helps too. But white could have held this position. I think Bb5 was a mistake. it forces Rf8 which was coming anyway. also loss of tempo with the bishop. I think Bc5 followed by qe2, rf1 and bd3 would have been better.|
|Sep-07-11|| ||indoknight: why not 21.Nxe8 ? this move give nice material for white!|
|Aug-31-13|| ||Boelke: anand is amazing with his sacrifices!|
|Sep-14-14|| ||dive: i'm a beginner at chess can anybody show me endgame or checkmate......after ph2 to ph4????????|
