Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-17-04  ajit: What a blunder by Anand?! Was this some blitz or blindfold. Cuz he resigns immediately after that blunder.
Mar-17-04  Whitehat1963: Scoresheet says "simul," but the question is whatever happened to "GENIUS"?
Nov-23-04  thesonicvision: forgive me. i see white clearly has a
much better position than black, but i can't see the EXACT combination that wins for white.
Nov-23-04  Lawrence: <thesonicvision>, <Junior 8> sees no winning line, suggests

31.♖xg7+ ♖xg7
32.♖e2 ♖g5
33.♖xf2 ♖f8
34.exf5 ♖fxf5 eval -0.81 (7 min search) Most of us would have struggled on.

Nov-23-04  Lawrence: P.S. Don't you mean that Black has a better position than White?
Nov-23-04  ajit: Did Anand Genius in a simultaneous exhibition?I mean this programme must atleast be 2550-2600 ELO approx.

  InspiredByMorphy: Why didnt Anand take advantage of blacks 2nd move and play 3.f4 ?
Nov-24-13  Patanjali: @thesonicvision

The winning combination? There IS no winning combination after Anand's blunder. But he did have a shot with..

30. exf5 Bf2 31. Rxg7+! Rxg7 32. f6 Qe5
33. Qxe5 Rxg2+! 34. Kxg2 dxe5 35. Kxf2 exf4 36. Rg1+ Kf8 37. Rg7 Re4 38. Kf3 Rxc4 39. Nxf4 Bf5 40. c3 b5 41. Re7 and white is clearly winning.

As for the WCC, my only thoughts are (1) congratulations to Carlsen, and (2) Anand really ought to have worked more on his preparation (i.e., diet, fitness, mental fitness,etc).
