Oct-08-05  mancha: this game is far more interesting then Anand-Topalov
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: Wow! This looks like it's going to be the game of the day! And we switched channels just when the fireworks started.

Somehow I imagine Svidler staring bug-eyed at that bishop on c3, going "homina homina homina" just like Ralph Kramden.

Oct-08-05  Double O Seven: Anybody have a Fritz evaluation for this game yet?
Oct-08-05  ongyj: <chessWizzy> but Topalov lost to noone in this tourney and Anand lost 2. How about that?
Oct-08-05  MTal: ChessWizzy, Anand will not even finish second. Not having guts (e.g., choosing to draw) does not qualify him. Plus, he was completely exposed and just fortunate in game 2.
Oct-08-05  HammerTime: I know Anand can move much faster than Topalov and that is why Anand was collecting data into his memory for final assault but then Anand thought, hey it could be a draw as well..and as you know topalov he never lost a game...but Anand will remain #2 in the world of chess. Its only my opinion....
Oct-08-05  crazy monk: Bc4 certainly a brave move, deserves atleast !!?

  WannaBe: <Sneaky: ... going "homina homina homina" just like Ralph Kramden.> LOL =)
Oct-08-05  theweirdo: black seems to have threats like QB5, Qa7, Nc6, Qxa3
Oct-08-05  Per: < pavkata: taking the bishop is definitely me the choices are between Qb5 or Ngf5 or e5.

Or Bishop top c1 looks solid too

Oct-08-05  The King Returns1: I thought Anand had some winning chances. His pawns in the middle were very nice. But, I guess he didn't see the win in sight, and settled for the draw. That's why I'm here, and he's there =).

  TheAlchemist: Maybe Svidler's appetite will kick in, and he will eat the Bishop.
Oct-08-05  BaiKosta: FRITZ says +1.24 advantage for Svidler,however it is hard to defence in the proper way .
Oct-08-05  Resignation Trap: <TheAlchemist> Is it chocolate or licorice?
Oct-08-05  ChessLeader: What about N:e6, fe; B:d6, N:d6; e5!?
Oct-08-05  CAPA2422: Nxe6 Nxe6 e5 +.34

pretty even

Oct-08-05  Pawsome: <taking the bishop is definitely me the choices are between Qb5 or Ngf5 or e5> Correct, for example: 24. bc3 Ra3 25. Nb5 Ra2 26. Rd2 Rdw 27. Bd2 Bc4! 28. Qc4 Qa5 and wins.
Oct-08-05  The King Returns1: Svidler is now hoping that Kasim doesn't see the discovered attack on his queen after he plays e5.
Oct-08-05  notsodeepthought: <WannaBe: 25. Nxe6 Nxe6 26. e5 Qc8 +1.25> <CAPA2422: Nxe6 Nxe6 e5 +.34> That's what I like about computers - they've removed all uncertainty.
Oct-08-05  marco antonio: I thik Bxd6 NxB, e5
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <notsodeepthought> Computers (noun) logical way for things to go wrong... What you mean it crashed?! =)
Oct-08-05  Helloween: Taking the Bishop loses to Rxa3 followed by Ra2(so says Fritz).

Oct-08-05  crazy monk: <they've removed all uncertainty> but chess like life, is all uncertain. That is the beauty of it.
Oct-08-05  pavkata: e5 and black plays d5, and the e5 break didn't accomplish much
Oct-08-05  12929011: e5 is the way to go, according to Fritz 8, though there seems to be a lot of anti-computer sentiment around here.
