Oct-26-08  AdrianP: I'm still interested in h4 for White
Oct-26-08  kellmano: Hats off to Anand for still playing adventurously, but if Kramnik is still Kramnik, this will be tough for him.
Oct-26-08  Red October: If you were shown the board position and asked to guess the players I bet most would say something like Shirov-Morozevich or something like that
Oct-26-08  chessic eric: regarding the b4 bishop, black may want to get in ...c5 before he trades for the knight; i don't know if there is time for both.
Oct-26-08  Whiteresigns: Someone tell this patzer what's wrong with f5?
Oct-26-08  Red October: I like exchanging on g5 fxg5 hxg5 and then e5
Oct-26-08  Strongest Force: 17.f5 looks "PHAT"
Oct-26-08  Microbe: <Red October> That actually sounds like a pretty fun game. I wonder if there's a forum on here that does that....
Oct-26-08  Red October: PHAT and STOOPID ?!! :)

  GM Renier Gonzalez: If 17.f5, then Rad8 and the d4 pawn is in trouble
Oct-26-08  kellmano: <Strongest Force> Nice to see the word spelt correctly. Phat indeed.
Oct-26-08  dakgootje: if 17. e5, what about 17. ...Bxc3 18. bxc3 c5 where black potentially sac's a one of his double-pawns for quite an active light-squared bishop?
Oct-26-08  Red October: < Microbe: <Red October> That actually sounds like a pretty fun game. I wonder if there's a forum on here that does that.... > you have just given me an idea for my forum :)
Oct-26-08  Pictura: <AdrianP: I'm still interested in h4 for White> hxg followed by h3 should be hard for white to defend, no?
Oct-26-08  chessic eric: 17.f5 looks premature, since i think Kramnik can safely continue ...Bxc3 18.Qxc3,exf5 19.exf5,Qf6
Oct-26-08  Microbe: <Red October> Glad to be of service ;-)
Oct-26-08  scrambler: Black still retains the possiblity to exchange knights, I'm worried about a rook going to g3 or h3 after anand opens with fg anand even has f5.
Oct-26-08  Whiteresigns: 17.f5 Rad8 18.f6?

  Mateo: A normal wy to take some advantage of the difference between 16...Qg7 and 16...Qg6 would be to play 17.e5 now.
Oct-26-08  Woody Wood Pusher: Anand might be having some difficulty choosing between the possible good continuations.
Oct-26-08  AdrianP: <pictura> Yes, you're right - h4 is pants.
Oct-26-08  Ulhumbrus: 17 g4 supports f5 in the event that Black responds to e5 with ...Qg6 or with ...Qh7
Oct-26-08  chessic eric: 17.e5,c5 will be exciting
Oct-26-08  Woody Wood Pusher: 17.fxg5 seems like the best choice IMO, before black plays f6 to back it up.
