|Nov-17-10|| ||anandrulez: mistreaver: <This a clearly a lost position, I think Anand made a good "move" throwing the towel. It's impossible to save this game.> In his book Kasparov's fighting chess Karoly gives 28 Nxe7 (with the help of fritz) as better for White. And also after 30 Nxe7 he says black is little better|
Combinations like this are very simple for Anand's level and 28 Nxe7 looked a solid plus for Anand . Its unbelivable how Anand went for the fork thinking it could be so easy to defeat Kasparov . It looked like Vishy got tricked by Kasparov but nonetheless a simple trick for WC level . Kramniks Nxd4 in Bonn was much more complicated than this and it needs some resources to be seen before hand but this is 2 mover .
|Nov-26-11|| ||serenpidity.ejd: The decision to resign was I think premature on the point of view from unrated wood pushers.
Anand could have played some more just to show the consequences of 30)....Rxb4.
But he already saw what was ahead. What can we do he is a Super Grandmaster!|
|Nov-26-11|| ||serenpidity.ejd: This pawn - grabbing is a remarkable chess trait of Kasparov. Nobody does it better(?).
Anand, albeit, did not see it coming just like the others. Deep calculation by the champ!|
|Feb-05-12|| ||fokers13: <chesschampion> white can play Bxb8=fail:P|
|May-21-12|| ||Check It Out: < fokers13: <chesschampion> white can play Bxb8=fail:P>|
1.Bxb8 allows mate in two starting with 1...Rg1+
|Sep-23-12|| ||govind: it is said that dragon gives black a better end game which led fischer to remark that before the end game there is middle game.With the exchange of queens black is clearly better.I like the clarity with which black has played the dragon.|
|Sep-23-12|| ||RookFile: Anand might not play 3. d4 today. It's a difference in his style compared to the past.|
|Sep-23-12|| ||perfidious: <RookFile: Anand might not play 3. d4 today. It's a difference in his style compared to the past.>|
The greater difference is that today he would be far more likely to play d4 at his first move.
|Jul-04-13|| ||Ulhumbrus: The capture 32...Rxc2!! removes the c2 pawn which covers the b3 square.|
In this way it transforms the rook on b4 from a target into a weapon, a weapon which becomes able then to threatens the check ...Rb3+.
At the same time the rook which lands on on c2 attacks the rook on d2 and by doing so transforms itaelf from a target into a weapon as well.
In this way the capture 34..Rxc2 creates a double threat.
Although White attacks both rooks he can take only one at a time and the other rook is able then to carry out a winning threat.
|Oct-02-14|| ||villageboy: We, a group of good chess players were watching this game live and no one saw Rc2, when Nb6 was on the board. The variation is really world class.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||SpiritedReposte: Very unique finishing combo. I cannot recall seeing any like it.|
|Jan-21-15|| ||WDenayer: Chesschampion: 1.Nc3 Be4 2.Nxe4 h2 . White can't get a stalemate.|
|Dec-18-15|| ||goodevans: <villageboy: We, a group of good chess players were watching this game live and no one saw Rc2, when Nb6 was on the board>|
Today everyone would see it instantly courtesy of stockfish. And as a consequence scores of geniuses who can merely tell the difference between red and blue would have lambasted Anand as a blunderer.
|Dec-18-15|| ||kevin86: A brilliant finish; the rook sacrifice isn't a sac, it is a loan! With two pawns ahead, black should win easily!|
|Dec-18-15|| ||ajile: The thing I like about Black's game is he never allowed White to play g4. White never got any sign of a k-side attack which is the point of 10.0-0-0.|
Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say that White made some sub-optimal moves that ALLOWED Black to stop g4 and associated counterplay.
|Dec-18-15|| ||HeMateMe: site of the '95 match, Kasparov v. Anand, on top of the sadly destroyed World Trade Center. I think they played inside the Windows on the world restaurant, not sure.|
Moscow on the Hudson.
|Dec-19-15|| ||kevin86: I believe that match was played on the observation roof of tower 2- Windows is on tower one...|
|Apr-10-17|| ||Ironmanth: Wow. Just played this for the first time from the Black perspective. Garry just blunts Vishy's attempts at counterplay and "allows" the knight fork, only to come out two pawns up. Brilliant concept and execution.|
|Apr-10-17|| ||protonchess: Nice tactic, but can Black make progress after for example 28. Ree2 (threatening Nxe7) ?|
|Apr-10-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: What's wrong with the dirty old trick of 17. Nd5? Qxd2 18. Nxe7+ Kh7 19. Bxd2? Or if the Q retreats to d8 to defend e7, then 18. ...Nxf6 and exf6 leaves d6 incredibly weak or 18...Bxf6 loses the exchange (Bxf8)|
|Apr-11-17|| ||beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat>
At first glance, 17. Nd5 Qxd2 18. Nxe7+ Kh7 19. Bxd2 <Re8> skewers through to the knight on e2 after 20. Nd5? Nxd5 21. exd5 Rxe2.|
But there are interesting complications after 17. Nd5 Qxd2 18. Nxe7+ Kh7 19. Bxd2 Re8 <20. b3> Rc5 (White's same tactic is still on after ...Rc7) 21. <Bf4> Bf8 22. Bxd6 Bxe7 23. Bxc5 Bxc5.
After the smoke clears, White would have a rook and two pawns for two bishops for maybe a slight advantage, so yes, much better than the actual game. But that's a long and fairly tricky line with many places to look for improvements.
I wonder if this is a book position or possibly part of the players' home preparation.
|Apr-11-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant> Wow, I asked the right guy, thanks a lot!|
|Apr-11-17|| ||tamar: <I wonder if this is a book position or possibly part of the players' home preparation.>|
16...Qa5 had been tried before, but White reacted with a blunder 17 Bg5 b4
18 Nd5 Nxd5 19 Qxd5 Rc5 and Black won Suetin vs Szabo, 1967
|Jun-07-18|| ||iron john: why not 28.ke7 ?|
|Nov-13-18|| ||beatgiant: <iron john>
28. Nxe7 Re8 29. Nd5 Bxd5. Black wins a piece, because the e-pawn is pinned.
