  plang: Anand had previously played 9..Nbd7 against Yusupov in Las Palmas 1993 and drawn. Anand felt that after 13..Nbd7 he had equalized. 20 Bxc4 would have made it more difficult for black to break the white blockade on c4. Anand pointed out that it would have been stronger to play 22..c4 at once as the pin after 23 Bxc4..Rc8 is awkward for white. Playing ..c4 a move later allowed Yusupov to re-position his bishop to a more active diagonal which led Anand to offer the speculative pawn sacrifice with 24..Rb8. This decision paid off immediately when Yusupov missed 26 b3 which would have avoided granting Anand a dangerous passed b pawn. The German magazine Schach 64 mentioned a possible defense 28 Rd1..Qc2 29 Qa7..Rd8 30 Rxd8+..Bxd8
31 Qb8..Qd3 32 Be2..Qxe3+ 33 Bf2..Qc1+
34 Bf1 with the possibility of Bh4.
Instead Anand built up a powerful attack. Yusupov forfeited on time but he was lost anyway.
