Dec-28-03  pikoro: This is some error, right?
36. Rxe5 leads to inevitable mate...Rd1++
Dec-28-03  fatbaldguy: <pikoro>, after 36 ... Rd1+ 37 Re1+ (discovered check), there is no mate, and black can safely resign (and did).
Dec-28-03  BiLL RobeRTiE: can someone explain anand's Bb5-d3 maneuver? It seems that Rogers stands better after 4. Bb5+ Bd7 5. Bd3 than after 4. Bd3.
Dec-29-03  aboynamedgeorge: After 4. Bd3, black can play Ba6 trading off the bishops favourably. After 4. Bb5+ Bd7 5. Bd3, black no longer has this option (immediately - maybe in the future he can try it again, but it will take *much* more time to prepare).
Jun-14-06  mjk: <BiLL RobeRTiE> After 4.♗b5+ c6 5.♗d3 the c6 square is occupied by a pawn and not immediately available to Black's queen Knight.
Jun-02-13  My Face: Black planned at fianchetto his bishop by 3...b6 Bb5+

a)4...c6 5.Bd3 and the c6 square is occupied by a pawn, making 3...b6 look weakening

b)4...Bd7 5.Bd3 and black's plan of fianchettoing his bishop is destroyed and the light squares are weakened

c)4...Nd7 would make the pin on the knight a bit problematic

25. Ne4 misses 25.Rxe5! Nxe5 26.Ne4 winning the knight on e5

Oct-03-16  mckmac: 25.Rxe5 would also have denied us a virtuoso finish by GM Anand. Threat followed by threat. Logic, power, and precision.
Nov-04-16  mckmac: ... and if you think I saw that one meself, you are, of course, mistaken.

All the credit belongs to GM Daniel Normally.
