|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: Nf8-d6 is not possible. It is not a bishop.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||percyblakeney: Probable continuation: 47. Rxf6+ Kg7 48. g5 Rxc3 49. Ne6+ Kh8 50. g6 black resigns.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: percy, 49...Kh7|
|Jun-27-07|| ||percyblakeney: Well, Anand chose Ne6 instead, a bit left yet.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: Now Rf3+ diminishes white advantage.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||WannaBe: Can black get away with a perpetual here?|
|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: Wannabe, not exactly.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Marmot PFL: Rg7+ Kh6 f5 Rxc3 Rg6+ Anand trying to play the most precise line to win. He won't have many chances if he hopes to catch Kramnik.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||percyblakeney: I'd bet on 50. f5 now.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: that c4 pawn can do some harm.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Marmot PFL: Rg6+ Kh7 Rxf6 Bf3+ Kf2 Bxg4 loses toNf5+ Hg8 Rg6+etc.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||outplayer: See it is not simple I'd bet that a software could win from the position after Rh3|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Marmot PFL: which it sems black fell into, but he was losing anyway almost certainly|
|Jun-27-07|| ||chessgames.com: <Everybody> Thanks to all who showed up for today's live broadcast. Please note that tomorrow is a rest-day; games will resume on Friday, at 9:00am (USA/Eastern). Hope to see you then!|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Jack Kerouac: I'll be there chess games .com!|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Kool Knight: Pathetic, Black could have drew with Kh8 and he blundered alot. Vishy got a free point.|
|Jun-27-07|| ||Timex: <Kool Knight> I don't believe that is true.|
55.. Kh8 56. Nf7+ Kh7 57. Rxg4
It all ends up the same. So no, it is not pathetic.
Also, be sure to watch your mouth when you watch a high level game. No game is pathetic.
|Jun-28-07|| ||Mateo: Anand shows with his sophisticated art how to keep winning chances, even in positions where a draw is the more likely result. Worthy studying.|

If White trades it, Black will have the open “f” file.> 22.exd5 Nxd5 23.Be4 <After 23.Nxg6 fxg6, White does not win the “e5” pawn, because the “f2” pawn is under attack.> Qc5!? <23...Bxe4 24.Qxe4 Re8 is simple and equal. Naiditsch sacrifices a pawn to get the Bishop pair.> 24.Bxd5 Qxd5 25.Qxe5 Qxe5 <The only way to keep the Bishop pair.> 26.Rxe5 Bd3 27.Nf5 Ra8 <Threatens Ra1, which would tie the White Rook to the defence of the Bishop.> 28.Kg2 <In this way, Anand can move his Bishop if Ra1.> Ra5 <The trade of Rooks would lead to a drawish endgame.> 29.Re8+ Kh7 30.Nd6 f6 31.Be3 Ra6 <threatens Bxe3 followed by Rxd6.> 32.Nb5!? <It seems that Anand thought that 32.Nf5 Bxf5 33.gxf5 Bxe3 34.Rxe3 Rb6 leads to a drawish Rook ending.> Bxe3 33.Rxe3 Rb6 34.Nd4 <The Knight is directed to “e6” to attack the “g7” pawn in connection with the Rook.> Rxb2 35.Re7 h5 <He does not want to have his King restricted on the back rank.> 36.Ne6 hxg4 37.Rxg7+ <Or 37.hxg4 Re2 38.Rxg7+ Kh6 transposing.> Kh6 38.hxg4 Re2 39.Re7 Be4+? <It was time for 39...Rc2 40.Rf7 Kg6 41.Rc7 Rxc3 42.Nf4+ Kg5 43.Nxd3 Rxd3 44.Rxc4. White won a pawn, but the ending is still drawish.> 40.Kg3! Rc2 <40...Bd5 41.Nd4! Rxe7 42.Nf5+, White wins.> 41.Nf8 Bd3 42.f4! Rc1 <42...Rxc3? 43.Kh4! mates quickly.> 43.Rf7 <The simplest. Anand plays the end of the game in the most accurate way.> Rg1+ 44.Kh3 Rh1+ 45.Kg2 Be4+ 46.Kf2 Rh3 47.Ne6! Rf3+ 48.Ke2 Kg6 49.Rg7+ Kh6 50.f5 Rxc3 51.Rg6+ Kh7 52.Rxf6 Bf3+ 53.Kf2 Bxg4 54.Ng5+ Kg8 <54...Kg7 55.Rg6+ Kf8 56.Nh7+ wins in the same way.> 55.Rg6+ Kf8 56.Nh7+ Kf7 57.Rxg4 1-0
|Jun-29-07|| ||Atking: <It was time for 39...Rc2 40.Rf7 Kg6 41.Rc7 Rxc3 42.Nf4+ Kg5 43.Nxd3 Rxd3 44.Rxc4. White won a pawn, but the ending is still drawish.> I'm agree. Did Naidisch was in time pressure?
The finish is elegant but in all, Anand didn't overplayed his opponent like Kramnik did with Carlsen.
Again a good global view of game <Mateo>. Thanks for this analysis.|
|Jun-29-07|| ||Mateo: <Atking> <Did Naidisch was in time pressure?> I was looking to the game live. According to the clock, he was not in time pressure.|
|Jun-29-07|| ||newton296: what happens if on move 9) anand plays d4xe5 to try and win a pawn and prevent black castling? Line would be d4xe5...Nxd5 NxN ...PxN QXQ...KXQ BXf7 I don't see the reason anand didn't go for this line?|
|Jun-29-07|| ||newton296: white's pawn at e4 is inviolate due to the snappy Bd5! after ...Nxe4? forking the knights and winning for white no?|
|Jun-29-07|| ||newton296: I must be missing some move for black? anyone understand this line?|
|Jun-30-07|| ||Mateo: <newton296: what happens if on move 9) anand plays d4xe5 to try and win a pawn and prevent black castling? Line would be d4xe5...Nxd5 NxN ...PxN QXQ...KXQ BXf7 I don't see the reason anand didn't go for this line?> It's a theoretical line. 9.dxe5 Nxe5 10.Nxe5 dxe5 11.Qxd8+ Kxd8 12.Bxf7. Then 12...Rf8 wins back a pawn. After 13.Bd5 Nxd5 14.exd5 Bb7. White cannot keep the pawn because otherwise he loses "f2".|
|Jul-01-07|| ||newton296: <Mateo> thx for response. I think I will add this aggressive looking line to my e4 defense. I like the look of 12)...Rf8|
