Humph. I've played thousands worse than that.

Oct-30-15  paavoh: Me too, <keypusher> but this was really a bad one, by a large margin, for a 2800 player. Closer to one of my own games in the 80's.

  WannaBe: Maybe Anand don't remember this game:

A Zapata vs Anand, 1988

  tamar: On the spanish commentary, Giri was asked if there were any areas where he thought he surpassed Carlsen.

He thought for a moment, and said he didn't think Carlsen (or other leading grandmaster) could say they had a won position against Anand in 11 moves.

  offramp: Giri is a tough opponent for anyone. He doesn't win as much as many other top masters, but he is very hard to beat and he is as alert as meerkat doing a bungee jump into Jimmy Savile's paddling pool. So if you make an error he spots it quickly.

Is it possible that Anand sees in Anish something of himself fourscore and ten years ago? The rapid play, the confidence, the burgeoning sap, the lakes of spunk LOL? Who knows?

Oct-30-15  JohnDMaster: Indeed! The 6 move loss to Alonso Zapata following faulty and fraudulent informator analysis!
Oct-30-15  Ulhumbrus: 7...Nxe4 is inconsistent in one way because it opens the game after Black has conceded the bishop pair, and in a position where it is White who is ahead in development. This suggests 7...d6 instead.
Oct-31-15  Steve.Patzer: Shall we say formerly a 2800 player?
Oct-31-15  epistle: temporarily. He'll get back his lost points in his next game
Oct-31-15  Everett: <He thought for a moment, and said he didn't think Carlsen (or other leading grandmaster) could say they had a won position against Anand in 11 moves.>

Giri is such a douche. I do not wish him a successful career.

Oct-31-15  epistle: That's already crocodile under the bridge. Girl already has a successful career.
Oct-31-15  shintaro go: He has been like that ever since he beat Carlsen in Tata 2011.
Nov-01-15  Everett: <-31-15 epistle: That's already crocodile under the bridge. Girl already has a successful career.>

Eh? When is five years a career? He hasn't even played level events more than five years.

Nov-01-15  epistle: So it's a hobby? Feeding Sopiko by playing chess?
Mar-25-16  Rama: The English again. Why is this a problem for Vishy? Just play symmetrically.

Anyway they play again Sunday in Moscow. Good luck!
