  whiteshark: Report from the tournament page :

"Gelfand had his revenge in the rapid game. Anandís <16.Na2> was a blunder and after Blackís reply <16...Ne4> he was in trouble. Within a couple of moves Gelfand won a pawn and the rest was, to simplify matters, plain sailing. As the Israeli number one commented: <The way I play here I might have even spoiled this, but I didnít.>"

Mar-26-08  pawnofdoom: The final position looks funny. Black's queen is hanging but taking would cost a queen. If Anand simply exchanged queens like that though, wouldn't he have chances of drawing because black's doubled e-pawns would be weak?

Mar-26-08  Aspirador: <pawnofdoom> I also thought that white could have played on here, but it's not pleasant and Anand seems to be totally demoralized at the moment.

Click on the board. Then try Ctrl-F, or right-click and select 'Flip Board'.

Mar-28-08  hkannan2000: <LiveBlockade> Ctrl+F helps, but easier is to click on the alphabets on the board. It flips the board
