Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-07  blazerdoodle: This seems like a pretty cool game to me. Black is briefly a pawn ahead, but I figured it didn't mean much. Then White gets a pawn ahead, and it's over, as White is Anand. Could use one of those high rated players to explain it to me though. I don't know zip about theory without one of the gang explaining it all. It just seems like a strange first 20 moves to me.

Go Anand!

Oct-20-07  Open Defence: <blazerdoodle> in a nutshell the backward black c pawn along with White's activity on the half open c file decided this...

Black had a very awkward Queen side Knight as well

Oct-21-07  blazerdoodle: Thank you. I've played through it a few times, and I find it a fascinating position. Maybe it doesn't have the sparks of some other games, but those first twenty moves or so seem deceptively simple, and yet Black loses. I wonder where he actually went wrong?

Could 9...b4 have shaken things up?

Jul-16-13  lioric: Beautiful game ... I agree with Open Defence,
Anand was only temporarily a pawn down, his coordination + activity were more than enough compensation.
