  plang: Anand claimed that 10..a6 was new though there are two earlier games in this database. 11 Be2 is now considered the main line. Anand wasn't sure 13..Rb8 and 14..b4 was the best plan as it led to Black having a weak a-pawn. 16 Bf4! was just in time to prevent the freeing ..d5. 34..f4 was a serious concession but White was planning Rf1 and f4. Anand could have taken the pawn with 48 Nxd6..as after 48..Bxd6 49 Rxd6..Qxd6 50 Qxg6..Rgd8 51 Rxf4+! White wins. Still with his significant positional advantage Anand won quickly anyway.
