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!
Dec-09-04  rags: I think white was doing fine until the error 24 bxc4
May-22-06  Whitehat1963: 24...Nxf4! Is there any defense after this?
Nov-24-06  Open Defence: and they dared to call him Drawnik....
Nov-15-14  The Rocket: g3 is a careless move from Anand. One ought not lose from this position as white.
