|Apr-30-10|| ||MTuraga: Black is threatening Rd3 check|
|Apr-30-10|| ||ajile: It's true Black has the resource ..Nb4. But I don't think this is the type of position Black envisioned 4 moves ago.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||Mateo: So this is the idea of the python from Madras. 34.Rxh5?? Rd3+, Black wins.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||Bondsamir: Dear Mr.Short you make veiwers lose all interest in the game from the beginning then suddenly you say I take back all my comments.thanks for the comments though.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||DoesItHurt: A single mistake Anand made in this game was g4. Would it be enough for Topalov to win?|
|Apr-30-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: Anand seems to have found an answer for the moment. White can't take the h5 pawn as on 34 Rxh5 Rd3+ forks White's K and B.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||outplayer: i expected 33.Rd2!|

|Apr-30-10|| ||DEEPERGRAY: Even though Topa is determined Vishy is in his comfort zone and probably will not faulter|
|Apr-30-10|| ||Nigel Short: Anand is still alright, but the difference is that earlier he could play almost any move and be ok but now he has to be careful. I wouldn't quite describe it as walking a tightrope, but it has moved somewhat closer.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||chesstoplay: < talisman: topa checks right? >|
Yes, Rc7 and then back to c3 to cover the d3 square.

delete xenophon: <<hows life in england> I hear the conservatives are coming back, thanks to gordon brown>
No we're holding them off thanks to nick clegg.
Nigel-if the tories return will you? you used to be a bit of a blue didn't you? Especially as even the UK seems financially sounder than Greece.
|Apr-30-10|| ||kellmano: <Nigel-if the tories return will you? you used to be a bit of a blue didn't you?>|
No that's Phil Collins
|Apr-30-10|| ||Bobby Fiske: Thank you <radu stancu>. In spite of having only one eye, you have a very sharp sight!
I hope they fix it. If I have to carry on like this, people start consider me vain.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||talisman: <DrGridlock> thanks Doc.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||DrGridlock: <Yes, Rc7 and then back to c3 to cover the d3 square.>|
And after Black returns his king to e7, what has White gained from shuffling his rook up and down the c-file?
|Apr-30-10|| ||Ulhumbrus: On 34 Bc4 Rc5 skewers White's R to White's B and on 34 Bc2 Nxc2 Rxc2 Rc6 may draw. On 34 Kf2 Rd2+ forks the K and b2 pawn. Has Anand found an answer to the threat of Rxh5, then?|
|Apr-30-10|| ||kellmano: If only the white bishop had a nice square to sit on|
|Apr-30-10|| ||talisman: <chesstoplay> thanks!|
|Apr-30-10|| ||Mateo: Once again, not 35.Rxb7?? Rd3+.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||hedgeh0g: These "no draw" rules really seem to be working. In positions where most players would agree to draw, being forced to play on can lead to mistakes and inaccuracies, yielding decisive results.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||ajile: The weakness on b4 saves Black.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||BobCrisp: Life under rictus-grinning Gordon Brown is <Just another day in paradise>.|
|Apr-30-10|| ||boz: <DrGridlock: <Yes, Rc7 and then back to c3 to cover the d3 square.>
And after Black returns his king to e7, what has White gained from shuffling his rook up and down the c-file?>|
He gained a tempo because now it is White to play.
