  refutor: nice win by bruzon...
Jun-09-06  chessmoron: What a interesting Queen Pawn Game opening for Bruzon.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Darn, black resigned. Now I won't know what white's next move would be.
Jun-10-06  Notagm: Very much a Capablanca like opening, if not the entire game
Jun-10-06  hitman84: OUCH!!

Jun-10-06  hitman84: 25.Re6!! was a stunner.
Jun-10-06  Whitehat1963: So why did Anand play 28...e3 rather than resigning immediately?
Premium Chessgames Member
  catlover: I have heard doing a "spite check" (like 28...Qe3+ would have been) before resigning in a helpless position. Never heard of a spite pawn push, though.
Jun-10-06  BobbyBishop: He must have seen the mate on g2 out of the corner of his eye and hoped Bruzon might hallucinate for one move.
Jun-11-06  Ulhumbrus: The move 13 f4! is instructive. The pawn advance f4! can be regarded as a potential threat on the part of a player having White's pawn formation. Indeed, Black may have won by means of the minority attack ...f5 on the Black side of a QGD exchange pawn fornation more than once. Black has no minority attack on the Queen side, yet nor does he have any other types of threats upon White's Q side pawns. All this suggests that the king side minority attack f4 or ...f5 can be regarded as a potential threat if the opponent does not carry out a Queen side minority attack swiftly enough.
Jul-05-06  Naja: i believe this is the zukertort variation of the colle system. why did anand fall for that? explains the plunge in his rating.
Jul-05-06  notsodeepthought: Logical wordplay choice, given that puns based on "Bruzon" have already been beaten to death in previous games.
Jul-05-06  Far1ey: 21. Qxh7+?? Kf7 threatening Rh8 trapping queen. Is this correct?
Jul-05-06  LivBlockade: I'm interested in the move 15. Rc1. What are the key ideas in the position? Only two moves later, the queenside is locked up and White repositions the rook to the f file and conducts a kingside attack. But I'm not sure why White needs to play 15. Rc1 and why Black had nothing better than 15...b5.

  khense: Before 25 RXe6, I'll bet black already didn't like his game.
Jul-05-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Was this a rapid game? Some moves in this game make you think so and the weird opening too.
Jul-05-06  elevator: Maybe...I agree with you but I'm not sure!
Jul-05-06  Manic: Yes i believe this tournament was a rapid one.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Honza Cervenka: This opening reminds rather Rubinstein than Capablanca. Pretty game!
Premium Chessgames Member
  RandomVisitor: Perhaps better for Black was 19...Bxe5 20.dxe5 dxe4 21.Qh5 Qb6 Kh1 = .
Jul-05-06  cyruslaihy: i don't understand the pun,
does lazaro means come forth in latin?
Jul-05-06  weary willy: The pun is a reference to the Christian gospels - where there is an account of Jesus of Nazareth bringing back to life a friend, Lazarus, who had died some days earlier. He calls into the tomb, "Lazarus, come forth"

  Phony Benoni: Anand has done a big favor for all of us who have ever been crushed by a Colle. We don't need to be quite as embarrassed any more if it can happen to him.
Premium Chessgames Member
  xenophon: and he came fifth and lost the race
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: It looks like Anand made a big error and resigned to avoid being mated on the move.

Poor white-he has little chance to stop the mate at g2---except to deliver one himself by 29 ♕d7#
