  notyetagm: Nice win by Anand.
Oct-27-04  themindset: isn't this an O'Kelly, and not a Kan ?
Oct-27-04  drchess9999: 37.Nf4 good move
Oct-27-04  themindset: yes indeed, Nf4 is a great move. leads to a skewer if black is foolish.

  notyetagm: Yes, 2 ... a6 is an O'Kelly Sicilian, which gives Black an improved version of the Najdorf if White plays 3 d4.

  notyetagm: I don't think I've ever seen Morozevich demolished tactically like this. In the final position Moro is down by a whole rook!
Nov-23-04  seoulmama: Anand really is the best player in the world at the moment, absolutely dominating Morozevich here. He is my favourite player, and it is very pleasing to see him take his place in the 'hierarchy', number one that is.
Nov-23-04  RisingChamp: "Dominating" "Demolished Tactically".Actually Moro just blundered a rook in time presure missing 37 Nf4 if he saves the rook there is no reason why Anand should win.

  acirce: I agree that Anand did not seem to have a very large advantage before 35..dxc5?? so dominating is probably not the correct word.
Oct-31-10  echector: This is actually a Kan, as the game transposes variations around move six.
