|Nov-10-05|| ||Mateo: <Sumant2393: Why did Kasparov have to play 20.h4 instead of Be5?> After 20. Be5 Black plays 20... f6 recovering the piece. But I think White could not only play 20. Be5 but should have played it.|
|Nov-10-05|| ||pankajdaga: What is the significance of 18: Bg6 by Anand?|
|Dec-30-05|| ||aw1988: Black threatens Qa1+ winning the rook on h1.|
|Apr-24-06|| ||Bob726: On move 7, shouldn't white play Bc4, devloping his bishop with a gain of time since it attacks blacks queen?|
|Apr-24-06|| ||blingice: <Bob> That's another idea...
|Apr-26-06|| ||Bob726: Looks like kasparov should have played that move. It has better chances to win and less chance to lose!|
|Oct-21-06|| ||Open Defence: This is a game from the tournament <suenteus po> .. If I remembr correctly it was not rapid but normal time controls.. but the more informed members could correct me if I am wrong|
|Oct-21-06|| ||suenteus po 147: <Open Defence> You correct. If you refer back to Anand's page, then you will see I have vindicated you. This game will be collected shortly.|
|Oct-21-06|| ||Open Defence: <suenteus po> yes i saw the post after posting here.. but I bookmarked this one for you indirectly hehehe.. I was going over <Mr Keenes> notes on this game which is given as a prelude to the 1995 WC match games with Gary in his book on that match..|
|Jul-08-09|| ||Gambitor: Anand used his queen excelently in this game, almost always centralized and keeping and eye on both kings, very accurate game by Anand against the WC.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||BishopBerkeley: Those "prodigious syllables" Sat-Chit-Ananda (to quote Aldous Huxley). Volumes could be written about them. (Volumes have!)|
An extremely modest summary of one aspect of Satchitananda might be this: the *natural state* of consciousness (Chit) is bliss, joy, happiness (Ananda). Joyfulness is, we might say, the default state of mind. So long as consciousness (yourself, others, and myself) holds fast to goodness and right living (Sat), there will be no obstacles, and mind will naturally be happy. However, if one abandons goodness and skillful action (Sat) for ego-directed or ignorant unskillful action ("Asat" or "adharma"), obstacles will develop like dark clouds in the sky -- and the natural joy of the mind will be covered. So thick will be the covering at times that joy may seem to have vanished (though it has merely entered a state of latency -- the potential for joy is coextensive and coeval with any and all consciousness).
There is, of course, much more to be said of these "prodigious syllables," but those are my thoughts for the moment.
Om tat sat.
(: Bishop Berkeley :)

|Jan-04-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Looks like the good Bishop and I were writing at the same time.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||shach matov: <What does the title of the game mean?> The chessgames puns are usually very annoying and pointless. Usually pointlessly connected to some pop-culture phenomena. Unlike most other things on the site, this particular thing is worthy of complete ignorance.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||scutigera: <shach_matov>: How unfortunate you are in your timing! This is the first pun-of-the-day I've seen in weeks that has not caused me physical discomfort.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||shach matov: <scutigera> I can see that; unfortunately after seeing many puns that have caused me to experience acutely painful facial distortions and involuntary chaotic limb movement, I am unable to read any puns on this site (even if potentially meaningful) calmly. Simply too many painful memories.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||thathwamasi: Thanks Chessgames.com for using the pun I had suggested. <Bishop_Berkeley> Thank you so much for the brilliant explanation.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||Tequestar: It's interesting that Kasparov's 19. Bxf6 aims to undermine Black Bishop, BUT at the same time, it leaves d4-Knight in dire position AND Anand calculates indirect way to exploit it BEFORE the whole variation appears on the board.|
Second commendable thing is how Anand returns tinest bit of material to activate his Rooks and increase King's safety. As the game switches from Kingside to Queenside it turns out that Kasparov's pieces are misplaced. However, it still takes a tremendous technique to calculate Q+R attack with pawn support.
ChessGames, I'm in awe.
|Jan-04-11|| ||DarthStapler: I don't get the pun|
|Jan-04-11|| ||technical draw: <Simply too many painful memories.>|
I get too many punful memories. (no pain intended)
|Jan-04-11|| ||mastermind7994: I didn't get the pun either but it was a very fine game.|
|Jan-04-11|| ||technical draw: Satcitananda-Truth, consciousness and bliss. From Hinduism and Yoga.|
Anand's name is in there.
|Jan-04-11|| ||kevin86: A very good champ vs future champ match. It looked like the two rooks on the h-file were going to prevail,but Anand was able to hold them off. Wow!|
|Jan-04-11|| ||HeMateMe: <The chessgames puns are usually very annoying and pointless.> ...that means he doesn't get them..|
I guess Vishy achieved bliss while sitting on Gerry? Waitaminute--this is a family site. Strike that from the record.
|Jan-04-11|| ||dark.horse: 45...a4!|
