"As I've noted more than once on my blog, the German Bundesliga features some of the best chess almost no one sees, because the games are spread out over many months and they tend to receive rather sporadic live coverage. Many great games fail to receive the widespread publicity they deserve, and Anand's win over Polish GM Bartlomiej Macieja is case in point.

The game features a Classical Caro-Kann with the players castling on opposite wings, and as is well known that's a prescription for attacking chess. So it was here, too, but Anand did a lot more of it than his opponent! All the same, the game was extremely interesting and close, and Macieja committed but a single error. Anand's attacking conception was outstanding, and the behind-the-scenes variations make the game even more memorable." http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...

Oct-08-08  Bratek: I wonder what was this single error committed by Macieja?
Oct-08-08  IT4L1CO: Maybe 22..Nh7. Why not 22..d3?
c5 pawn is so week...
Dec-10-13  jakaiden: <Bratek: I wonder what was this single error committed by Macieja?> 19.g4! In general, Black is well advised to prevent the attack associated with g2-g4.
