Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-12-04  chesscookie: I've never seen 2 knights reaching all the way to the endgame..I've seen rooks, Bishops etc..but not knights
Dec-12-04  JohnBoy: After 59...Bb1, I would think 60.Nf7 finally nets the pawns. Is 60.Kf7 a typo, or is white trying to construct a mating net? If so, I don't see it.

  tpstar: <JohnBoy> The finale is confusing, and I suspect an incorrect move transcribed here. Note ChessBase 8.0 gives 55. Ndf5 instead, so after 55 ... g6 56. Nd4 White has Knights on d4 and e7, but this doesn't make sense because then 57 ... Bd5?? 58. Nxd5 wins. You're right how White should get the King on f6 and the Knights on f5 & f7 to pick off the Kingside Pawns, which may or may not have happened in real life!
Nov-19-05  vijeet: 14. 0-0.Is it not a blunder?
it lost a piece and the game.

  HeMateMe: Max Dlugy made it to the Tal Memorial, doing a little commentating. This goes way back, 26 years, a very young Anand beats an equally young Max Dlugy.

Apparently the game score here is botched.

Jun-27-13  4play: If 29..f5 then white plays for Nb7 followed by Nd6 and a perma weakness on e5 which cannot be defended by rook on e8.

I wonder if this was seen before the decision on playing Ne4 might have occurred. Any thoughts?
