Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-23-07  russep: Anand almost had it.
Mar-23-07  yalie: around move 35-36, I was sure Anand was winnning .. where did he go wrong? anyone?
Mar-23-07  yalie: was 36.. c2 possible?
Mar-23-07  Knight13: <yalie: was 36.. c2 possible?> Yeah but 36...Rd8 is better.
Mar-23-07  Shajmaty: Anyway, who can expect something like 39. Kg2... blindfolded!?
Mar-23-07  slomarko: what are you talking about? this was the rapid game
Mar-23-07  Shajmaty: <slomarko: what are you talking about? this was the rapid game> Ooops... nice resource, anyway.

  ahmadov: <yalie: around move 35-36, I was sure Anand was winnning .. where did he go wrong? anyone?> The chessbase article about this game says that it was Carlsen's 39.Kg2 that saved the game.
Mar-24-07  sitzkrieg: I am surprised to see that someone of Anands calibre cant win of Carlsen (at least in this instance) even if he tries. I am starting to think the Carlsen fans are right..
Mar-24-07  scacchi: Yes sitzkrieg you are right, Anand "only" beat Magnus 4 to 0, with 6 draws (almost 50% of victories)... lol However, in this match Carlsen defended very well and managed to draw the game in extremis.

  ahmadov: <sitzkrieg: I am surprised to see that someone of Anands calibre cant win of Carlsen (at least in this instance) even if he tries. I am starting to think the Carlsen fans are right..> There is nothing to be surprised. Carlsen is one of the elite players in the world. He would not be invited to such tournaments if it was so easy, including for Anand, to beat him...
Mar-25-07  sitzkrieg: Well i meant to say that sometimes i got the feeling in earlier games that the elite didnt really push to win against magnus, f.e. often in morelia-linares, where i thought they would milk him for points. Maybe this is why..
