|Jan-05-03|| ||Ashley: Black played an offbeat line of the Breyer in the opening. The ending is nice. After the dubious 36...c3, Anand played 37. Nf6. Black could not take the knight (as after 37...gxf6 38. gxf6 h6 39. Kh1 leads to a mate on the g-file) so played 37...Re5, but Anand had the remarkable 38. g6 in waiting. If 38...gxf6 39. Qxf6+ Bg7 40. Qd8+ and White wins. |
|Jan-06-03|| ||Sylvester: Anand did not put it in his book. He only chose two games from the World Championship (if that's what it was), one against Adams and one against Shirov from the finals. |
|Jan-06-03|| ||Sabatini: Would not 38…hxg6 be black's best move? |
|Jan-06-03|| ||Ashley: Sylvester, what do you say we call it the FIDE World Championship and leave it at that?|
Sabatini, I agree that is a better move for black than the one he found in the game.
|Jan-06-03|| ||mj29479: what about 37.Rd8 for blacks |
|Jan-07-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: If 37...Rd8, then 38.Nxh7 Kxh7 39.Qh4+ Kg8 40.g6 threatening 41.Qh7# or 41.Qxd8. |
|Jan-07-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: 38...hxg6 39.Qh4+ Rh5 40.Nxh5 gxh5 41.Qxh5+ Kg8 42.Rf3 g6 43.Qg5 seems to be hopeless for black too. For example 43...Nb4 44.Qd8 Na6 45.Ne6 +- or 43...Qb6 44.Ne6 +- or 43...Bg7 44.Qd8+ Kh7 45.Rf4 c2 (45...Bh6 46.Rh4 etc.) 46.Rh4+ Bh6 47.Rxh6+ Kxh6 48.Qh8+ Kg5 49.Nf3+ Kf4 50.Qh4+ Bg4 51.Qxg4# or 43...c2 44.Bxc2 Rxc2 45.Nxc2 Qxc2 46.Rc1 +- etc. |
|Jan-07-03|| ||Honza Cervenka: If 37...gxf6, then 38.gxf6 h6 (38...Re5 39.Nf5 +-) 39.Ne6! Rxe6 (39...fxe6? 40.f7 +-; 39...Bxe6 40.dxe6 Qe2 41.e7 +- or 40...Rc5 41.exf7 +-) 41.dxe6 (41.Qg4? Qxf2+! 42.Kxf2 Rxf6+ -+) 41...Bxe6 42.Rxd6 Qb8 (else 43.Rd8) 43.Rxa6 Qb7 44.Rxe6 +- |
|Aug-15-06|| ||thesonicvision: wikipedia lists this game as a sample
of anand's play. i think vishy
deserves a little more recognition
for this one.
37. Nf6! is a very timely move.
|Oct-17-06|| ||semislav: This could be a great puzzle 37.???|
|Mar-07-07|| ||Illogic: Underrated game. Beautiful attack by Vishy
|Nov-04-08|| ||veerar: Good game,by Vishy!I saw the Telecast of this game.|
|May-16-10|| ||Chesstiger2010: Игра Ананда была безупречная! Сделаны были только самые сильные ходы! Уровень сильных Гроссов уже очень высокий что даже малейшая незначительная ошибка может привести к поражению!|
|May-16-10|| ||Tomlinsky: That's easy for you to say.|
|May-16-10|| ||myschkin: . . .
Indeed ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASGp...
|May-20-10|| ||AngeLa: .. yeah remarkably... active play towards the black king ^^v|
|Jul-23-10|| ||Indiachess: Why not 39..Re8 ?|
|Apr-04-11|| ||mountm: <39...Re8 40. Nxf8> and Black cannot recapture. It's still a better move than <39...Be7>, but White's tactical advantage cannot be refuted.|
|Apr-04-11|| ||redcircle: 38.g6!! spectacular move taking advantage of both Black's back rang weaknesses and Black's fewer pieces on the kingside that leads to mate after 38..hxg6|
that's why Black was forced to take with fxg6 and after 39.Nd7 he can resign.
of course black cannot ignore the threat of 38.g6 actually he's in a kind of zugzwang whatever he plays makes his position worse
|May-16-13|| ||EvanTheTerrible: This needs more attention.|
|May-17-13|| ||NGambit: A case of being overshadowed by a famous sibling?
