Oct-25-04  themindset: nice pawn sac for mobility.
Dec-20-10  shinm80: I wonder why Anand had not captured the pawn, 63)...Rxe6, threatening Rxc6.
Dec-20-10  shinm80: after 60)Rxf3 Bxf3, white knight can do rampage on Black pawns.61) Kg3 Bc6 62)Nd3 Kxh7 and knight gains all.

  Sastre: If 63.Rxe6 then 63...Bg2 64.Re8+ Kxh7 65.Re7+ Kg8 66.Re8+ Kf7 and White cannot prevent 67...Rh3#.

  Sastre: <shinm80: after 60)Rxf3 Bxf3, white knight can do rampage on Black pawns.61) Kg3 Bc6 62)Nd3 Kxh7 and knight gains all> After 60.Rxf3 Bxf3 61.Kg3 Be2 62.Ne4 b3, Black is winning.
Dec-20-10  shinm80: it can go like this: 46)Ne4 b3 47) axb3, with the advantage of 48) Nxc5. if 46)... Bxe4 47)Kxe4 and the a2 pawn is still protected.
Dec-20-10  shinm80: after 61)...Be2 62)Ne4 both players capture a pawn, but the chance of win for White is small after 64) Nb3 with threat of Nxe6.
May-06-13  The Rocket: Really great game, intense all the way. Anand messed up somewhere along the way, but that's because he was pressing. Two of the all time great rapid players duking it out here
