|Nov-14-03|| ||Catholic Bishop: 30. ...Rhg2 ?%#@!
Profoundly disrespectful, even if it is against a computer.
|Jun-19-05|| ||gambitfan: splendid play !|
|Jul-02-05|| ||InitiativeCheck: 12. ...Rb4 is lunacy! Allowing c3 with a gain of tempo for the pawn fork b4. And although <Catholic Bishop> is right, Anand could have mated a move earlier, Fritz was disrespectful too with the retarded rook checks to prolong the game. Computers are good like that. 30. ...Rhg2? I can just picture Anand thinking "Ha!what you got now Fritzy?"|
|Jul-02-05|| ||offramp: A computer's meaningless checks just before mate are called 'Vinegar Stroke Checks'.

|Feb-13-06|| ||Lupechmand: Why not 30. ...Re1#?|
|May-06-06|| ||boowillo: hg2,h2 was cooler|
|Aug-01-06|| ||SPCCrutch: <boowillo> Anand was just making a fool out of this computer. that's all.|
|Aug-01-06|| ||gambitfan: Why 30... Rhg2 ???
Why not 30... Rhf2 ++ ????
One move too much, isn't it ?
|Mar-14-07|| ||gambitfan: I am very surprised...
30... Rhg2 ???
30... R(h or e)f2 # !!! mate!
Anand is wasting one move, isnt he ???
|Mar-14-07|| ||ginsta: I agree with boowillo. Rhg2 followed by Nh2 looks more beautiful.
Why are the computer's checks called 'vinegar stroke checks'?|
|Nov-16-07|| ||SuperPatzer77: <SPCCrutch>: I completely agree with you, SPCCrutch. Vishy Anand wondered why this computer Fritz refused to resign so, that's why he had decided to make fun of this computer - Vishy Anand moved 30...Rhg2 mockingly instead of 30...Re1#, Ref2# or Rhf2#. Of course, Fritz was so disrespectful. LOL Well, Vishy Anand must probably have preferred to checkmate the computer Fritz with just his black knight! LOL|
|Nov-16-07|| ||Riverbeast: Amazing that Anand could beat the computer with such tactical play...but I guess you could do that with the older computers. They would take all material offered to them without necessarily seeing that it was bad.|
The new ones see much further...I would love to see someone sac a piece against the new version of Deep Fritz and beat it!

Looks to me like Fritz is is serious trouble after taking the bishop with 16. bxc5. After that Anand's pieces just swarmed White's king side position and Fritz seemed helpless to stop it.
If instead of 17 Bxe4 Fritz had played 17 dxe4, 17 . . .Qb8 looks devastating. If 17 Bg2, then Anand can continue with 17 . . . Rxd3 followed by the rapid intrusion of the knights as happened in the game.
