May-17-05  jaigans: Nice tactical game until Viswathan Anand does it again he does it again with26.♙xf5 and trieing to continue a win with this material count.V.A.=♗ ♙ ♙For B.B.=♖ ♙.So,if black plays ♗xf1after the position of 26.♙xf5and ♖xf1will really cause a lot of danger.

  Abdel Irada: Is a Badea what you get if you cross "bad" and "idea"?

If so, does this apply to <Ide(y)a Blagonadezhnaya>?

  Abdel Irada: Unfair of Anand to finish the game with 27 bishops.
Mar-29-13  TheTamale: I must say I am not seeing the crushing continuation here.
Mar-29-13  zakkzheng: 0-0 Bxd5 followed by Rg1 Game Over!
Mar-29-13  Garech: Great game! Loved the pun too; huge Breaking Bad fan.


Mar-29-13  AutumnLord: Hi everybody! Why not 29. ...Qg6?

  kevin86: A crossfire attack on the queen and rook is black runs for the tall timber.

BB=Great Show!

Mar-29-13  John Abraham: <AutumnLord>

29...Qg6 30. Qxd5 and white has a very strong position

30...0-0 31. Rxf7 is a strong move due to white's concentrated attack on f7 (with possibilities of grabbing the rook on a8)

Mar-29-13  apexin: <kevin86> Indeed. This game is like a story of Walter's transforming from a simple-working guy into a reckless drug-baron. Makes me want to see the the second part of that last season even more; 23.f5! is a very good move and so is the follow-up 24.g4. It's very hard to find these moves and the following complications at the board. I don't think that WW is gonna win the game called Life though.
Mar-30-13  TheTamale: Thanks, <zakkzheng>!
Apr-17-13  Tim Delaney: if 29 ... Qg6 then 30 Qxd5? ... O-O, 31 Rxf7 ... K-h8 and white has a difficult task ahead. Much better is 30 Ba4+ ... Kf8 (other moves result in forced mate) 31 Qxd5 ... Rb8 (or Rc8) 32 Bb3 crushing all resistance.
Sep-17-14  visis: This opening truly is not B90, but Fischer-Sozin B87 ECO.
