|Dec-25-13|| ||haydn20: <perfidious>,<MF>, thanks for the replies. I played seriously from 1974-1983 & have come back only lately. Thanks esp. for Shirov-Karpov, a v. interesting game. The game here is fascinating, with Black going all-in on an attack when a draw would have been fine. Should put an end to the Carlsen-just-waits-for-the-endgame crap once for all.|
|Dec-26-13|| ||Jaidip: Opening preparations and finding novelties are not a perfect way to develop Chess. Moveorder preparations doesn't Supports the flow of Chess. Chess Should be grasped by Language reasoning Logic expereince listening Viewing instructive positions and games understanding.These are the flexible elements and Moveorder preparations are rigid way which insults the Subject CHESS.|
|Dec-26-13|| ||PaulBl: I'm not quite sure from where your wisdom comes, Jaidip, maybe you are an expert on chess preparation or chess education. To me, the best guide in doing so is the way the top players prepare and study for the past ten years. Whatever they do, they have results, not only coming from their talent. Do you, or anybody else, know what the top players did and do?|
|Dec-30-13|| ||MarkFinan: Nice shot <PaulBl>, bloody nice shot! So what do the top players do then??|
|Jan-02-14|| ||checkmateyourmove: 8...C4 reminds me of kramnik's qoute on magnus and his boa style.|
|Jan-05-14|| ||PaulBl: Hi MarkFinan, I really don't know what the top players do when they study and prepare, certainly the last 10 years. Therefore I asked my questions. I got the impression that Jaidip didn't know either, but others may know. And Carlsen, being the strongest chess player right now, would pose the best example to copy, an inspiration for all those that want to get stronger. This is not applicable to me anymore, lacking both talent and youth.|
|Feb-15-14|| ||Salty: Interestingly, 4.f3 was also Nakamura's try against Carlsen in Zurich, in a game in which Naka could and probably should have won. Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014|
I wonder if he got the idea from this Carlsen-Anand game.
|Mar-02-14|| ||knowall: How about 27 Be4 as a move. The idea is put the Bishop on c2 dealing with the threat in some lines of the black c pawn queening. If the Bishop is captured then Nxe4 and how is the threat of Nd6 to be met.
Once the bishop is on c2 then Nh5 followed by Ng7 is a threat.
Thought of Be4 myself as real men do not use computers.|
|Mar-02-14|| ||knowall: As you were:
After 27 Be4 cd 28 Nxe4 Black has 28... Qd5 and if 29 Nd6 then 29... Bb7 seems to refute was a clever idea at the time
|Mar-11-14|| ||Levo: Why do I feel like Anand threw this game?|
|Mar-28-14|| ||PinnedPiece: GTM score 47 par 41.
Quite a game.
|Mar-31-14|| ||epicchess: csmath, please think about the position before you start talking trash about other people's responses. Considering the fact that my rating is most likely like twice of yours, I would my comments to myself if I were you.|
|Mar-31-14|| ||SirRuthless: Shots fired!|
|Mar-31-14|| ||perfidious: <epicchess> My guess is that your rating is <not> twice that of <csmath>, for he is a most capable player-doubt your rating is even twice that of my own!|
|Apr-03-14|| ||epicchess: perfidous, it was an exaggeration. However, I am still better than you, and him. Also, I do not post responses randomly, I analyze them myself, not on a computer, like most people here do. I think it is bad to compare human games with that of a machine.|
|Apr-09-14|| ||joddon: magnus fights up the ranks....one rank at a time. once the fifth rank is his he walks his way up very very slowly.....and in the end anand is making no counter play uses, I mean he has no effort in his attack....is he sleeping , I mean there needs to be a lot more said and done to pick the right initiative....giving magnus the initiative means you are dead.not easy ofcourse but one has to try atleast...poor effort by anand in my case.|
|Apr-14-14|| ||Everett: Far from being refuted, 4.a3 and 4.f3 are absolutely the way to go to attack the Nimzo. Botvinnik and Bronstein thought so, and I agree. Spassky has played these themes as well.|
And Karpov didn't always have a picnic with it.

A masterpiece from both players with the exception of Nf1 from Anand which was a complete blunder.. And Carlsen never moves his queen once! Love this game.

Great tension! I feel sorry for Anand once he realizes what he's done, you can see the panic and pain in his face. Carlsen just gets up and I'm guessing goes to the toilet where I'm pretty sure he just looked into the mirror and said.. "I've done it!". Great little clip.

Wow excellent video which shows every note of agony. Music works as well.
|Nov-08-14|| ||1d410: In the Game of Thrones there is no middle ground. You win or you die|
|Nov-08-14|| ||csmath: The game is a fantastic example of near invincibility of Carlsen. It is amazing that he was not only able to defend in an original game but that he was actually able to turn the tables on Anand. It seems that 42. ...Re3 would have been very difficult for white to defend. |
Very nice game for the start.
