Mar-25-07  Troglodyte: A victory in classic style by Anand.
Mar-25-07  izual: does not 52. ... Rc2 better ?
Mar-25-07  veigaman: 42... bd5 !!!
Mar-25-07  TheSlid: 49...Rb6 looked like a bad move - Vallejo should have drawn this - was he playing for a win?
Mar-25-07  sheaf: 42..Bd5 loses to 43. Be3!! but 42.. Rg8 looks very strong indeed and will at least hold a draw... i dont believe that black had anything better than a draw here
Mar-25-07  dramas79: According to the official site, anand forgot that there were 2 passers for Black and was worried when he realized this.
Mar-26-07  anandrulez: paco should have won this game or atleast drawn this . somehow anand managed a miraculous escape and win the game ...

well played paco ; well done vishy

Mar-26-07  sheaf: objectively black is pressing hard here but where is the win i cant see any, i hope somebody with a fritz comes up with line.. in my opinion the position was supersharp but black had nothing more than a draw.
