Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-08  The Chess Express: White might have tried 11. Ng5 when both Bxg5 12. Bxc5 Nxe5 13. f4 Nd7 14. Ba3 and 11. Ng5 d4 12. Nxe6 Nxe6 13. Bf4 Nxf4 14. Qf3 look good for white. Probably best is 11. Ng5 0-0 12. Ndf3 h6 13. Nxe6 fxe6 14. Bxc5 Bxc5 15. c3

The presence of opposite colored ♗ís may lead to a drawish endgame, but for right now white is better. Black has a lot of weak light squares around his ♔.

  tpstar: 9. Be3 should be met by 9 ... Nc5 = Opening Explorer

Nice endgame by Anand, creating an isolated Pd4 which he picks off easily. Note White lost time due to his lsb being so short of squares; 33. Ke1 or else 33 ... Rd2 34. Bb1 Rd1+ wins.

On 11. Ng5 Black could try 11 ... Nxb3 12. Nxe6 (12. Qh5?! g6) fxe6 13. Nxb3 Nxe5 snatching a Pawn (14. Qh5+ Ng6).
