Sep-01-06  AbhinavAsthana: Indeeed a great performance by vishy.
Mar-05-08  Telmo Escobar: It's a good positional game, but not particularly brilliant. Maybe Vishy remembers this game for personal reasons.
Aug-02-08  firefly3: I was first surprised after 30... Kf7, giving up the b7 pawn, but perhaps it is necessary. e.g.

30... Rc7 31. b6 Re7 31. c5 Kf8 32. c6 bc 33. Rxc6 Ke8 34. Rc8+ Kf7 35. Rc7


30... Rc7 31. b6 Re7 31. c5 e4 32. c6 bc 33. Rxc6 e3 34. fe fe 35. Rc7! Kf7 (35... Kf8? 36. b7!) 36. Kc2! e2 37. Rxe7+ Kxe7 38. Kd2 Kd7 with a won king and pawn endgame for white.

Aug-26-10  divakaranmanoj78: This game should have been lost by anand if Inkiov played 26th move Bxf2 instead of Bxd6. I have researched it. Anyone deny.

  Sastre: How can Black win after 26...Bxf2 27.Rxb7? White appears to be winning.
Aug-05-12  Gru: White has to be better after:
26 ... Bxf2 27 Rxb7 Rd8 28. Rb8 Rxb8 29. Bxb8

Bc7 will follow with threats of b6 and Bxa5. If 29... Bb6 to prevent it then 30. Bd6 Kf7 31. c5 looks strong
