Feb-23-13  dumbgai: 45. Rxb3?? White is simply a pawn up after a reasonable move like 45. Nd2 or Rb2.
Feb-23-13  RookFile: Maybe he was so sure that he was going to play 44...Rxb3 he captured first and asked questions later during this blitz game.

  HeMateMe: anand probably had one second left on his clock, or some horrible thing like that.
Feb-23-13  anandrulez: Bf5 is good move
Feb-24-13  DoctorC: 45. Nd4 looks like a good move.

  PawnSac: I'm inclined to agree. Looks like time pressure
Apr-24-13  sinusitis: This was a 3 minute per side blitz event if I remember correctly. Definitely has to be time pressure.
Feb-28-14  joddon: anand is so funny here......with somehwat a clear advantage on the kings side after 31 moves he decides to simply trade off his pieces...what the hek is he thinking.......and to waste a bihop,by taking the pawn he has no immediate counter,but.....if hes gonna get his queen into shape by moving 28,29,30 to f3, he might as well pushed his g pawn up.....i guess hes too busy counting his dollars!lol.
