Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-14-03  Spitecheck: This is a very interesting line, I was playing this against the computer and when the bishop was asked "move it or lose it" I responded with h4 and was quite surprised that it was still book, on further investigation here is one of the games with the line.
Apr-07-05  Milo: Kasparov makes Anand's assault look silly. Are there any hidden chances for white?
Jan-31-07  Nezhmetdinov: how does black answer 17 g6? Bh4?
Oct-29-08  lopium: <Nezhmetdinov: how does black answer 17 g6? Bh4?> Yes. It loses the bishop but black seems ok. Rybka prefers 17.Qh7+ as played Anand.
Oct-29-08  lopium: Notice that white has a perpetual at move 19 : Qg6+ Kg8, Qh7+ Kf7 and so on. And much more incredible. After 19.Rhxd6? Anand is lost. But Kasparov then blundered allowing a draw : 23...Rh8 24.Rd7+ Ke8 25.Qxg5 Kxd7 26.Qxf5+ Kd6 27.Qg6+ Ke5 and so on. The final blunder was 28.Qxf3 while Qf7+ was preferable.
Oct-30-08  anandrulez: was this a rapid game ? infact anand's assault was very intuitive ( kasparov allowed it too ) but somehow he found the wrong coninutation

  kingscrusher: I have the event tag as :

"INTEL Rapid 25" which seems to be an important contextual bit of informatio missing from the event tag here. According to this, it would be 25 minutes per player ?!

  kingscrusher: Anyway, my interest was because I have video annotated this game now:

  Landman: For some reason, the move Nf3 can trigger immediate resignation. See also Ivanchuk vs Movsesian, 2008

Why? You have it already.

But never mind, here it is:

  amadeus: Thanks and gracias! Nice to see that I'm on the right track :)
Oct-26-10  r00ksac: I just played a 5 minute game with juniorlurking on fics that followed this game for 16 moves, whereupon I tried g6 and seemed lost when the computer gobbled some material and got itself mated. I had to check the line because I remembered that I had seen h4 somewhere and was intrigued by the thought that I had probably gone astray early. Surprized to see the illustrious company that has shared my interest in this line. That computer is only rated about 1900 blitz!
Mar-02-12  screwdriver: Alot of firecrackers going off in this game. I think I'll look at King Crusher's analysis on youtube first. Then come back and see if it makes any sense.
Mar-02-12  screwdriver: Nez and lopium seemed to have it right. The g6 pawn move can be answered by black with bishop to h4, returning some material. After the queens come off, it seems like black gains the exchange by capturing white's rook on d1 with his bishop from g4. Anand should've taken the draw that was pointed out earlier in the comment section. Still, what a wild game.
