Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-23-04  ArtNJ: The sac offered on move 17 is far beyond the ability of my Pocket Fritz to pierce. Only after playing out the most likely moves AND letting it think for a while does it recognize the compensation. There is no clear win within its horizon, even after playing out the most likely moves.

I guess this is why I'm not a great attacking player...when I see such positions I'm afraid the attack will lose momentum and I'll just be down material.

Hard to know when you get "enough" when you can't see a resolution.

I realize the theme of this sac is well known..but the position is not typical given the poor placement of the white queen. The idea of the sac would occur to me...but the correct evaluation...ah, thats another matter.

Nov-22-05  JYMMI: polgar was playing very well here.
very offensive and she didn't leave space for a anand's atk
Nov-22-05  RookFile: By way of contrast, Anand forgot to
develop his king's bishop and castle,
while playing the Sicilian.

Is that a good idea?

Nov-22-05  JYMMI: rook file is right develop the king's bishop would be a good move...
Nov-22-05  Koster: i would have played Be7 and at least been ready to castle on moves 8-12. But I don't play or study this line, too much theory.
Mar-10-07  rjsolcruz: On Anand's forgoing of the castling move; I would like to quote Kasparov in his book Kasparov Teaches Chess,"Beginners and those with insufficient experience should castle at the earliest opportunity."

Well,I guess that just like the Ten Commandments, these basic rules are not just for beginners nor children but for ALL to follow. God bless.

Mar-10-07  euripides: Back often doesn't castle in this variation, as the king is often safer in the middle; for instance Judit Polgar vs Kasparov, 2001
Dec-22-10  kevins55555: Why resign, Anand? Win to the ♕ueen of chess
Dec-22-10  kevins55555: Good job, Judit!
Oct-04-13  rccomputacion: LA JUGADA 17 DE LAS NEGRAS NO SE PUEDE TOMAR EL CABALLO CON EL PEON POR EL JAQUE CON LA TORRE DE e1 PERO SE PUEDE TOMAR CON EL ALFIL DE b7 O EL CABALLO DE b6... PERO DE TODOS MODOS LA POSICIÓN DE LAS BLANCAS ES MUY SUPERIOR,
