Jul-27-04  ConLaMismaMano: If 13...Nc6xe5 then 14.f4! and the Knight is lost. Or if 14...Nd7xe5 the same thing happens.
Sep-18-05  seeminor: I remember Maurice Ashley commentating on this game saying that anands pawns looked like american football players charging down the field!
Dec-12-06  ronaldducalang: Nice game by Anand
Dec-12-06  Lt. Col. Majid: I saw the "boom" "boom" pawns-march Ashley commentary too. It was awesome.

Chess is such a docile and boring looking game to non-chess players. If there is one commentator who can make the pieces speak, it is Ashley.

He is such a lively and animated commentator. FIDE should be using this guy big time.

I am pretty sure it is.

Oct-23-07  Mike1307: Great Game by Anand, indeed his pawns are football players charging down the field, lol!
Sep-12-08  DoubleCheck: If this is a rapid game, then that would explain the not-so-constructive 21. d5 and 30. h5 and possibly the missing 51. Qxe4

If 51.Qxe4, e1=Q 52.Rxe1 Qxg3+ 53.Kh1, dxe1=Q+

Jan-30-10  aazqua: I remember this. This was back when Anand used to win games and was considered a pretty good player. Seems like a long time ago ...
Jan-30-10  VaselineTopLove: This game for some reason reminds me of the just played

Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2010

Jan-30-10  Mr. Bojangles: This game was a blitz.
