Oct-01-04  Kean: I never saw this game! This was really a dinamic berlin, maybe by the pression Vishy was doing.
Dec-09-04  Bobak Zahmat: The this may be a rapid match. But still, Anand plays very badly the last moves. Someone of his calibur should do better!

Nov-15-14  The Rocket: g3 is a careless move from Anand. One ought not lose from this position as white.
