Anand played <14. Bh3> here. That move is not the best and reason for upcoming problems. <14. a3> or <14. Na4> should be considered seriously.

May-08-09  SirChrislov: Check out his book "Masterpieces of attack" written by gabriel velasco. nothing but brilliant, attacking chess!
May-09-12  Truthpirate: Sisniega was the best Mexican player for a long time. I didnīt know he had beaten Anand once.

"Sad news from Mexico this past Saturday. Grandmaster, author and award winning film director, Marcel Sisniega died unexpectedly of a heart attack. (July 28,1959 - January 19, 2013.) ...In the summer of 1985 (Taxco Interzonal) he was already of grandmaster strength. (The title would only be given officially to him in 1992). A GM of about 2500-strength managed to defeat many notable grandmasters, including Anand[this game]and Illescas."
