Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: gm 4 1991 canidates: At this point the match is tied at 1.5 What folows is a 3 game collasps by Dreev that ends his hopes in this match.First 15 moves are theory and black is ok.31.Rh2 is a powerful move by Anand,instead of taking the a6 pawn he plays to cramp blacks kingside and take entire pieces out of the game,which seems more effective than grabbing a pawn.31.Bxa6 Qb6 32.Bb5 Rc5 33.Ba4 Rhc8 34.f5! and black has freed the H8-rook.In the game Anand keeps the h rook out of play with powerful results.34..Rg8?? attempting to bring the rook into play is actually a losing blunder! to 35.fxe6 and 37.Rf7+ wins immediately but black is lost totally.Instead of 34..Rg8 black must try 34...Qxe5! white is better but the game goes on.Nice win for Anand!
