  Phony Benoni: Darn. I hate it when the same game is GOTD twice in the same year. Screws up the index.
Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Not to mention how many other great games are out there waiting to be GOTD

  thegoodanarchist: <IFNB: <<Conrad>> <Who pissed in your cereal this morning?> I'm just speaking the truth. If you can point to someone here who reacts to your posts with anything more positive than annoyance or open contempt, let me know.>

Over at the 2015 US Open page the guy is verbally abusing a 14 year old kid:

<Conrad93: Chess players do not need your typical socially-awkward nerd stereotype representing chess.

We need to move away from that. Sevian is a horrible walking cliche.>

  morfishine: Love the analogy, what-with this being Game 3
Apr-05-15  A.T PhoneHome: Anand has had an incredible career. For me, he has done everything he needs to. He doesn't need to "reach" anymore.

This game is a really good example of Anand's deep opening preparation! It never hurts to make Carlsen think a lot.

Apr-05-15  nalinw: Yes - considering what day it is and the match situation I think this is one of the best puns of all time.

What did they pick for April 1 - already forgotten :-) - ah yes - a made up game wasn't it?

Apr-05-15  A.T PhoneHome: <nalinw> This game was!

  kevin86: Anand wins the third game...good pun for Easter. But Carlsen won the match!

  Penguincw: I forgot to ask. How was your Black Friday shopping?

But hmm. It's an Anand-Carlsen game. Must be from a recent WCC game!

Hey, I was right! That was the only thing I got right, as I incorrectly predicted 28.Qxb4 Qxc6 29.Qxa3.

For some reason, I don't remember stumbling across this game, but considering I haven't been following chess for the last 2 months, should've be too big of a surprise.

Game Analysis:

But hey, Monday's tomorrow!

  jith1207: Vishy-insane-nathan Anand!

Knew this game from the last Wcc, the only glorious day for the former world champ during the match. But this is still insane, that I don't get the puzzle solution correctly.

Nov-29-15  devere: Is this "problem" White to play and then Black to blunder? Suppose Black makes a reasonable reply to 28. Ra1 such as h5. How does White win then?
Nov-29-15  kubbybulin: Yet another game continuation...this is not a "puzzle". A puzzle would be 28. Qb4 Qc6 29. Qe7 actually leading somewhere worth going; but after the eventual Be5 that is necessary to set up the mate threats, black simply gives back the exchange with at least equality.
Premium Chessgames Member
  yadasampati: Beautiful victory by Anand! 28. Ra1 was impossible to find for me. And i also cannot figure out why he first played 33. e6 in the end, instead of directly Rc1. I assume it was necessary, but why?
Premium Chessgames Member
  agb2002: Too memorable.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <agb2002> Ditto; but even if one hadn't seen this game or known the position, I don't see what's "insane". White achieved positional domination and that's that

  Jimfromprovidence: <yadasampati> <And i also cannot figure out why he first played 33. e6 in the end, instead of directly Rc1. I assume it was necessary, but why?>

There was a superficial threat 33...Qxe5 seeing 34...Qxh2+. Maybe that was it, but he could have directly played 33 Rc1 or 33 Rc5, below.
