Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: gm 1 of the 1991 Canidates match vs Dreev very nice match and we see how Anand launched himself to the top of the chess world.Ok 18 moves of theory,hmm looks equal but whites c-pawns look like they wont last to long.The ending of the game is one of the stranges ive seen.Dreeve must have thought he saw some kind of back rank them and gives up the queen for nothing and resigns a few moves later.This set the tone for the rest of the match as Anand dominated.
Oct-17-05  hjsukthankar: He gets a rook + bishop for the queen, and I think he resigned because of the passed pawns on the queenside.
Oct-17-05  Poisonpawns: Sorry <hjsukthankar> I was joking.What i met was that Dreev miscalculated and that he didnt get what he expected from the combination.He got what he could get quickly realized it was "nothing" and resigned.i.e "nothing of substance"
