Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-13-09  FSR: What, no 2...f6 against Anand? Are we sure this is the "real" Anand? It seems weird having the likes of Sam Sloan playing a super-grandmaster.
Oct-13-09  tonsillolith: Does Black have any better replies to White's 6. d3 or was 4...Nxe4 a mistake?

To me it seems like White gets a good game after 7. Bb3.

Oct-14-09  FSR: I don't see any better replies to 6.d3. 4...Nxe4 is definitely bad and is never played by top players today. The only accepted moves for Black are 4...d5 and the wild 4...Bc5?!, which Beliavsky has played but is considered dubious after 5.Bxf7+! Ke7 6.Bd5. As for 4...Nxe4, the main line is 5.Bxf7+! Ke7 6.d4! and Black is in big trouble.
Feb-19-10  HeMateMe: hmmmm....not too many "heavyweights" in the Sloan file. But, there is this game with Anand. Black has a lost game after 6 moves. This might be a good opening to learn.
