Chessical: In this game Gashimov surprisingly crumbles straight after fighting towards equality with Black.
Gashimov's <25...Nf6> seems to be the commencement of a rapid slide from equality to defeat;
<25...Nxf2> 26.Kf1 Qf8 27. b4 Nxb4 28.Bxb4 Bxb4 29.Qxf2 would have maintained an dynamic equality.
After his next move, Gashimov is in significant trouble, his pieces are pushed back into a corner.
<26...Bd4> 27.Bxd4 Nxd4 28.Nxe5 Bxb5 29.Qxd4 Bxa4 30.Nc4 Ne8 31.e5, would have been to Anand's advantage, but it would have been better position than that yielded from retreating to <f8>
<36. Be5!> appears even more effective, after <26...Qg6> 37.Qc3 Qb1+ (and not <37...f6?> 38.Bd6+ Kg8 39.Qc8) 38.Kh2
