  Reisswolf: Cheese burgers are burgers, i.e. beef burgers, with cheese. You have the option of getting cheese slices with your burgers, or leaving them out.

Grilled cheese burgers are probably the most common type of sandwiches sold in the United States. If you were to order a "cheese burger" here, rest assured that it will contain a nice, big beef patty.

  TrueFiendish: What a fascinating debate about the fine cuisine on offer in the good old US of A. I can't understand why obesity statistics there are so high!
Mar-16-04  weepingwarrior: I love to study Anand's games, and I have learned alot from them. Right from the opening, Kamsky out plays Anand, and Anand should have resigned on move 53.

  aw1988: What is this page for? Studying Anand-Kamsky or becoming a master chef? :/

  BobbyBishop: ll bet this game is what gave Anand the idea to use this opening against GK in their match a year later. He probably thought how bad could it be if even I lost to it! Seeing ..1 d5 probably sent Kaspy's eyebrows arching in a big way.

  madlydeeply: yes, I yam a Kamsky fan.
Apr-04-08  nathanschulz: Is 33. Kd2? the turning point?
Apr-04-08  mistreaver: <Is 33. Kd2? the turning point?> I don't think so i think black already had the better ending due to white's passive DSB and white's doubled pawns
May-30-08  ezmerin: I believe 36. Rb6 is the turning point. Removing White rook from open g-file enables immediate 36...g5! and, by threatening White Bishop, Black wins f-pawn.
May-30-08  nathanschulz: if 36. Rg1, for example, then still 36...g5, and White cannot take the pawn without losing his bishop, I think it's all pretty forced after 33. Kd2?
May-31-08  ezmerin: Well, natanschulz, looks like you're right. 33. Kd2? is a blunder. So, anyone has improvement on mind? Maybe 33. Rd1? or 33. Kd1?
Oct-01-08  vonKrolock: <34.♗e8+> leads to a practically lost position after the sequence till <36...g5>; an interesting alternative was the exchange sac - the immediate 34.♖xg6 ♔xg6 35.fxe5 etc, or in the form of 34.fxe5 f4 35.♖xg6 etc
Oct-01-08  Ladolcevita: from the appearance of the game,i think we can say Kamsky gets a huge invisible potential advantage by skillfully shaping its pawn chains at bothsides. Look at anand's queen side,the bottom pawn is a dangerous weakness;while at his kingside,pawns are too few,but anand didnt set a maneuverable defendence to prevent Kamsky's pawn waterfall. Probably anand wants to controll the open files first,but his pieces blocked each other,and the pace is gradually left behind by his opponent,thus breaking down finally.
Feb-21-09  swarmoflocusts: Why in the world did Anand play this out? Quite honestly, I could win the position after 53...Bg3 with ten seconds on my clock playing against a perfect computer easily. (With black, obviously.)

  madmilz123: he played it cause of the cheeseburgers
May-13-09  WhiteRook48: Anand got checkmated?!
May-03-10  James Bowman: If you inserted Karpov instead of Kamsky I wouldn't be able to tell the difference the flavor to me was so much hat of Anatoly Karpov.

I am only now becoming a fan of Kamsky, especially after looking at both his best game wins over Kramnik which were incredible games some of the best. Gata is much more creative than I had given him credit for.

Feb-11-11  Rogalentis: I don't get
is this site about chess or indian cheeseburgers?

  Penguincw: I still can't believe Anand got mated,even after looking at the game.

was 47.Re1 really necessary? sure white position is not very good but at least he could try 47.Ra6. black can still win but he has to find 47...e3 48.fe3 Rd7!!

Oct-14-14  DiscoJew: Wow Anand played it out to mate...must have been angry about blowing his large middle game edge so hard?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: How many discos might there be in western Canada? Have you ever done The Moose Malaise? It's a trip-hop dance. People do it when taking downers at the clubs.
Oct-15-14  DiscoJew: DiscoJew don't advertise. ;-)
