Dec-19-07  square dance: <BTW I read somewhere that by drawing the first 8 games they both set a record for the most no. of consecutive draws in a WCH match. Could anyone confirm ? This victory surely brought relief to the spectators.> i suppose the first karpov-kasparov match is before your time. the 8 consecutive draws is probably a record from the start of a wc match.
Jan-19-08  mr j: Eurosport commentary on this game is so bad it is great :)

Mar-13-08  positionalgenius: Amazingly smooth win from anand. Kh2! is a really nice move.
Apr-22-08  hedgeh0g: <If u wanna ignore, then ignore and get a move on. Like we care.>

Ideally, yes, but that's not how ignoring/blocking systems usually work on the internet. In practice, most people simply use them as just another tool in prolonged arguments. The announcement of the block/ignore serves to convey the poster's dislike of a particular user to everyone on a message board, although the block/ignore itself is quite seldom used.

Ultimately, people are just too curious to read what others write about them.

Jun-28-08  jokerman: i've been looking at move 17.b4 for about 15 min. and i couldn't see why kasparov didn't play 17... Qxb4. Now i understand, so for the players who want to know:

If 17... Qxb4 18. Rab1 now black has 2 replies:

1) move queen to 18... Qa5 white wins with 19.Bb6 winning the queen.

2) move queen to 18... Qa3 white wins with Rb3 winning the Queen.

Jul-23-08  Woody Wood Pusher: Kramnik was such a coward not to rematch Kasparov.
Aug-17-08  Cactus: <hitman> If he's on your ignore list, why are you responding to him? <Woody> It's really pathetic that you say this, especially because I've explained this to you before: a) Kramnik and Kasparov both agreed before the match that there would be no rematch, and a rematch would make liars out of both of them b) Kasparov chose not to enter the Qualifier. Please stop posting trash! You said that garbage before (numourous times) and I've corrected you, so don't do it anymore (and I don't understand why you posted that here. Do you go to Steinitz-Zuckertort games and say 'I hate Kramnik!'?)
Aug-18-08  seagull1756: Looking at some of the comments here I feel obliged to make a very important and personal announcement: I hate onion soup. With passion. I insist - it is simply disgusting. Once again: ONION SOUP IS HISTORY
Aug-28-08  VaselineTopLove: This game reminds me of a similar previous encounter between these two -

Anand vs Kasparov, 1991

Sep-07-08  Cactus: <Seagull> What!?? Hate onion soup! You are <ASKING> for my ignore list. :)
Sep-12-08  DoubleCheck: im thinking something like;

36... Qc8??
37. Qxc8 Rxc8
38. Kxg3

36...Rxh3+
37. gxh3 Qe5+
38. Kh1 Re8
39. d7 Qe4+
40. Qxe4+ Rxe4
41. d8=Q

Before that...
31... Re7
32. Qb5 e3
33. Rg1

I think moves like 16... Bc6 (passive)and 27. Rd5 caught black offguard in terms of time and position. Great game nonetheless

Nov-02-08  Kasparov Fan01: Is this the last time Anand beat Kasparov in classical?
Nov-03-08  littlefermat: Yeah it was. According to the database, he won a couple of of games but none were at classical time control.

  LIFE Master AJ: Other than the games listed at the top of Anand's page, how many games would be better than this one? (I need to know, I am TRYING to compile a list of all of Anand's better games. If you have a good answer, be sure to post a note in my forum.)
Mar-11-10  rafnoc22: it need not thinking for 15 minutes to analize move #17 .... in 1 minute u can see the trap....thank you....jokerman, arent you playing blitz in your home?
Apr-29-10  MTuraga: Anand combined the strategy of Karpov and his own brilliant attacking genius in this game.

  sevenseaman: Simultaneous attack on both Rs combined with a defensive ploy is too much for Garry.
Mar-07-11  riverunner: I was wondering why 17. ... QxP didn't take place, but I just realized 18. a5 traps the queen.
Apr-18-11  ADDADZ: yes rda1
Jun-15-11  DrMAL: 19...Rb3 or 19...a5 was better than 19...axb5 and white gets some advantage with a queenside pawn majority. 27.Rd5 is a creative sac but after 31.Qd1 the position has around the same advantage for white about a pawn worth. 31...Rg5 instead of 31...e3 was the key mistake, it allowed white to take on b7 with a winning position. With 32...e3 instead of 32...Qf5 the win was faster. The sac threw off black's accuracy great game for Anand!
May-01-12  chesssalamander: Do you hate FRENCH onion soup? Heaven forfend!

  PawnSac: <sevenseaman: Simultaneous attack on both Rs combined with a defensive ploy is too much for Garry.>

Right. After ..Qe5 36.QxR black has no good discovered attack!

Aug-27-13  phil6875: Taking the Rook with 27...Nxd5 was a mistake but not a fatal one, even as late as move 31 Kasparov could have fought for a draw with,

31...Re7 32. Qa4 e3 33. Rf1 Ree8 34. Qb3 Qe4 35. d6 Re6 36. Qb1 Qxb1 37. Rxb1 Bxd6 38. cxd6 Rxd6 39. Kg1 Re8.

Here are two variations where Black doesn't take the Rook, they are better than 27...Nxd5 but not that much.

27...g6 28. c5 Rac8 29. Rbd1 Kg7 30. Qa4 Rc6 31. Be2 Rec8 32. Bb5 Rxc5 33. Bxc5 Rxc5 34. Rxc5 Bxc5 35. Qc4 Qe7 36. Qd3 h5 37. Rb1 Qc7.

27...Rec8 28. Rbd1 g6 29. Rxe5 Qxc4 30. Qb1 Qa4 31. Rb5 Rc4 32. e5 Ne4 33. Qb3 Qxb3 34. Rxb3 Re8 35. Rd4 Rc1+ 36. Kh2 Nc5 37. Rb5 Rxe5 38. Bxb7 Re6.

Mar-12-14  Makavelli II: Houdini doesn't like 27.Rd5 whatsoever. It's a good few years since I looked through this game but I do recall thinking that that move appeared unsound. I seem to remember a Rd5 move paying off quite well for Kasparov when he played Topalov back in 99. In this game though, from Kasparov's 31st move onwards all his moves deserve a question mark in notation.
