|Mar-28-11|| ||Bryan14: Very exiting video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwcO...
.. anand was under time pressure and took 1 and half minute for his 4th move :O!!|
|Mar-28-11|| ||anandrulez: Well played by Vishy and thanks for the video - did Smirin make a mistake taking the pawn and Sacing the knight ?|
|Nov-29-11|| ||joelsontang: What will Anand play if 20. Rfd1? Would that win back a piece for Smirin and leave the latter with a decisive material advantage? |
Or what should Anand do after 19. f3? Seems like Anand will have to return the piece.
|Nov-30-11|| ||standardwisdom: <joelsontang: Does 19. f3 get the white's piece back?>After 19. f3 Kh8 20. fxe4 Nxe3, and black remains a piece up. If 20. Bd2 then 20..Nxc3, and black still remains a piece up. There may be some combination here to attack white's minor pieces, but it isn't obvious.|
|Nov-30-11|| ||standardwisdom: <joelsontang: Does 19. f3 get the white's piece back?>
19. f3 Kh8 20. Bd2 Rc8|
|Apr-10-12|| ||luzhin: Joelsontang, after 20.Rfd1 Anand can simply play 20...Nxe3! But actually 20.Bd4 was a huge blunder, since Anand could have won on the spot with 20...Nxc3!!|
|May-11-13|| ||torreAC: The commentrators had no clue what was happening... They just kept saying that Anand is sacrificing Rook, Queen....It was too fast for them...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwcO|
|May-11-13|| ||anandrulez: 29 f4 is just a gamble to get Anand to play rxf4 , qc8 wins for white . Anand was much sharp he just played qxe5 . Queen Sacrifice is qxf2 Nakamura vs Krasenkow Krasenkow vs Nakamura, 2007 . Only Misha Tal might play this in Blitz !|
|May-17-13|| ||My Face: a blitz game
Believe it or not, anand spent 1:43 minutes on his fourth move( 4.d6 ) and he had only five minutes of time
|Aug-30-13|| ||Aman68: Why was white given 1 min extra in this game?|
|Aug-30-13|| ||John Abraham: Interesting game, Vishy is a genius|
|Jan-25-17|| ||ajile: It's hilarious that on the youtube video one commentator is exclaiming that Black sacced his queen with 29..Qxe5.|

According to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUr..., Anand had draw odds, but Smirin had a time advantage to compensate for it. Armageddon game I imagine.
|Jan-11-19|| ||sakredkow: I love this quote (which I'd never heard before) from one of the commenters on youtube: |
"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." - Abraham Lincoln quotes
|Jan-11-19|| ||sakredkow: I think what happened is that Smirin surprised Vishy with an unusual move order (4. Nxe5 instead of the normal 4. Bd3) and Vishy took a long look to see if he could exploit it instead of transposing into the mainline.|
