|Apr-24-10|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: Kf6 or just resign Vishy. Then shake it off, while I drink.|
|Apr-24-10|| ||benjinathan: That damn volcano!|
|Apr-24-10|| ||cornflake: It's always risky when you try to bust a line that your opponent knows very well. I guess this blew up in Anand's face.|
|Apr-24-10|| ||notyetagm: <AgentRgent: Very disappointing performance by Anand...>|
Wow, we actually agree on something.
|Apr-24-10|| ||wallnuts23: Nigel, i'm having trouble analysing after Kxf6, Rh3. Can black possibly play Bxf5, followed by Rh8?|
|Apr-24-10|| ||sofouuk: <GiovanniMacchia: Why not Rh8?> 25 Ng4! 1-0|

|Apr-24-10|| ||waustad: Spassky once won a brilliancy prize for a line that they'd had on the board all the way to resignation in prep. Has that happened again?|

Rh3 Qf4 - How about this ?
|Apr-24-10|| ||A Karpov Fan: what i hate about this is if Anand had deviated with a slightly sub-optimal move earlier on and just played chess he would have had all the chances.|
but by trying to follow all these 'perfect' engine moves he winds up completely lost by making one mistake, with absolutely no chess played inbetween!
|Apr-24-10|| ||SteinitzLives: Has Anand tried visiting the bathroom, or was Topo taking up the only stall?|
|Apr-24-10|| ||Once: <A Karpov Fan: Weren't engines supposed to eliminate this kind of opening disaster from world championship play?>|
Two possibilities here ... Anand forgot his software-assisted preparation or he is about to unleash an uber-powerful even deeper Fritz move that will prove us all totally wrong.
I'm going with theory #1. Shades of Spassky-Fischer, first world championship game, 11 July 1972?
|Apr-24-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: All A had to do was play ...Bb7 and then ...Kf7 was fine. Dangit!!|
|Apr-24-10|| ||chancho: One down, eleven to go...|
|Apr-24-10|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Every once in a while, I remember how bad I was at tactics. However, I have to wonder if it's good for chess for a player to receive criticism for shoddy preparation at move 23. It seems we're moving closer to the day when contestants won't leave book until after the first time control.|

IT was 'it ain't over'. IMO it should have been a fat lady singing.
|Apr-24-10|| ||Domdaniel: After 24.Nxf6, the follow-up Rh3 is a (winning!) only move in several lines. It's obvious, in a way - Rook to open file near King - but it also means turning down other tempting lines. I *think* I'd see that much if I had the wit to play Nxf6 in a game -- I'm pretty certain these guys will see it. Looks rather like a 1-0 already.|
This scanty analysis has benefitted from the insight of Nigel Short and the processing power of an old engine ...
|Apr-24-10|| ||Nigel Short: <wallnuts23> 24...Kxf6 25.Rh3 Bxf5 26.Rf1! is killing.|
|Apr-24-10|| ||Eyal: <Sacsacmate: Ofcourse I am a patzer..but plz tell me wht about |
Rh3 Qf4 - How about this ?>
26.e5+! (a key move for White in many lines).
|Apr-24-10|| ||SetNoEscapeOn: <I'm going with theory #1. Shades of Spassky-Fischer, first world championship game, 11 July 1972?>|
You mean that Kf7 was some kind of "!!!!" move? Yes, I can see that!
|Apr-24-10|| ||danielpi: Wow. Just woke up -- I figured they'd still be regurgitating opening moves. What the heck happened here?!|
|Apr-24-10|| ||plang: <but by trying to follow all these 'perfect' engine moves he winds up completely lost by making one mistake, with absolutely no chess played inbetween!>|
That is why these sharp lines are so dangerous. The difference between winning and losing can be one slight inaccuracy.
|Apr-24-10|| ||Xirtam: According to Pein and Svidler, Anand forgot his analysis and played Kf7 one move too early. "Normal" was Bd7 Rg3 and then Kf7.|
