|May-29-04|| ||radu stancu: Wow, this was one complicated afair ! And even if the queen move at the end obviously wins, it's still quite a move... |
|May-29-04|| ||poktirity: Strange game. |
|Dec-28-05|| ||Eatman: This must be quite an anomaly, Traxler gambit at the highest level of play at the end of 20th century. Anand plays what is considered the refutation but all it gets him is an unclear middlegame.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||tak traxler: Karpov vs Beliavsky, 1983
In the traxler, Belialvsky felt that 6.... Qe8 was not the best move yet he still managed the win. (according to his 2 Knights defense book). He felt proper play was per the game sited above back in the 80's against Karpov. It is nice to see this sharp line played at the higher levels.|
|Dec-04-06|| ||Resignation Trap: It seems to me that Vishy was doing just fine until 44.Nc5+?? Qxc5!|
|Dec-26-08|| ||GrahamClayton: When Queens are under attack, look at every possible move, every capture and check - Anand must have thought that Black would move his King out of check, thus giving time for Anand to move his Queen.|
|Jan-03-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 44 Nc5+?? what an Anand mistake|
|May-11-10|| ||Richard Taylor: Anand blundered at the end..complex game though.|
|Sep-19-10|| ||Jim Bartle: 34 Kc1 was considered totally useless. 34 Qa5 was a clear winner, according to Seirawan.|
|Nov-24-10|| ||sevenseaman: < GrahamClayton - Anand must have thought that Black would move his King out of check, thus giving time for Anand to move his Queen.> Very likely, but the real mistake has to be some way earlier? Think.|
|Dec-21-10|| ||PhilFeeley: Is this the game that Mauricio Perea says took Anand 16 minutes to play? He should have taken more time.|
|Dec-22-10|| ||anandrulez: Thanks <PhilFeeley> Thats a good read .|
|Dec-22-10|| ||sevenseaman: Thanks to <PhilFeeley> for posting a link to a wonderful and touching write up by Mauricio Perea. I think Anand lives in Madrid and prepares for his games there.|
Anand needs to slow down his game even further still. But the tempo is dictated by his lightening speed thinking and analyses. Any artificial attempt at slowing down could stilt his clarity. As Perea says, Anand himself is the best judge how he needs to pace himself.
|Apr-17-11|| ||Tigranny: What's the finish after 44...Qxc5?|
|Jun-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Black to play and win. (44... '?')|
|Jul-24-12|| ||JohnBoy: Trax goes Beli-up.
I always liked Beliavsky's play. He was more willing than most rooskies to take risks.
|Sep-13-13|| ||beenthere240: The finish after Qxc5 is for white to resign, since however he captures black's queen, he is going to lose his e and h pawns and have zero prospects in a hopeless endgame.|
|Oct-25-17|| ||Caissanist: Anand has slowed down considerably as a player over the years, and he says that is because of the games he lost because he didn't stop to think, citing this one in particular: https://www.chess.com/news/view/int... .|
|Nov-05-17|| ||AylerKupp: <beenthere240> Not to mention the Nf3 after either 45.Qxc5 Nxc5 46.bxc5 (or 46.dxc5) 46...Rxf3 or 45.bxc5 (or 45.dxc5) 45...Nxc3 46.Kxc3 Rxf3+.|
