Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-05-07  csmath: Just heads up for another brilliant Anand's attack, surprisingly so without any kibitzing.
Mar-06-07  yalie: thanks for bringing this game to my attention csmath .. 35.nf5 is beautiful
Mar-10-07  dramas79: fantastic. If 45.. Qd6+, then 46.g3+ winning.
Apr-28-07  anandrulez: cool game from vishy here
Oct-05-07  dabearsrock1010: this is one of my favorite games the lack of attention is surprising, it should be a game of the day.
Oct-05-07  dabearsrock1010: so many great moves...even the subtle 30. c4 to prevent queen trade...oh i love it so much
Jun-16-11  sevenseaman: 28. Nhf5, and no comments on it. How does one unscramble the import of such a move? The sac points to a breakout on d6 is one.

Looks impossible to even comprehend such brilliance, let alone conceive.

Aug-17-14  Rascal Nikov: Great game ! it should be added into any collection of Anand's games.
